Jimi Hendrix Stamp

Jimi Hendrix would give his stamp of approval for his new stamp from the post office.  Wonder if 45 years ago they would even consider creating a stamp with his image, most likely the post office was reading his mail on the behalf of Nixon.  We have come a long way.

Born in Seattle on November 27, 1942, Johnny Allen Hendrix would later have his name changed to James Marshall Hendrix. An entirely self-taught guitarist, he became one of the most important musicians of the 20th century.

Hendrix combined influences from rock, modern jazz, soul, and the blues with his own innovations, to create a unique style that influenced musical artists of his era and continues to inspire musicians into the 21st century.
