Janis Joplin Stamp

 

My Father tried to teach me how to be a stamp collector. I lacked the patience to work with stamps, first day issues etc. However if I was collecting today I’d be all over the music stamps.

The United States Postal Service’s Music Icons series has unveiled the official stamp for the series’ next rock star Janis Joplin.

“Janis Joplin (1943-1970) was a groundbreaking singer whose powerful, bluesy voice propelled her to the pinnacle of rock stardom. An icon of the 1960s, she was known for her uninhibited and soulful performances. Joplin is now recognized as one of the greatest rock singers of all time, as well as a pioneer who paved the way for other women in rock music.”
