Jimi Hendrix: New US postage stamp unveiled

A new postage stamp honoring guitar icon Jimi Hendrix has been unveiled as part of the United States Postal Service’s US Music Icons series.

Created by artist Rudy Gutierrez, the stamp design resembles a vintage 45 rpm record sleeve, and references the butterflies from Hendrix’s hit song, “Little Wing.” In the colorful design, Hendrix himself is wearing one of his signature military jackets, and soulfully playing one of his guitars.
