To be a part of history is a great phenomenon for anyone. Whenever you set out to do your God-given craft, it’s always nice to be appreciated. No matter how young or old you are, you must make up your mind to be the very best at what you’re called to do.

Musicians spend hours and hours perfecting their work. With all of the travel, they must remain focused and committed to their passion. Understand this important point – whether you play the piano, saxophone, drums, or bass guitar, just to name a few, if you’re good, people will recognize you. Sometimes the recognition may not come when it’s apparent, but over time, people who truly appreciate music will make your work known.

That’s what happened to legendary rock guitarist, Jimi Hendrix. Hendrix is definitely a household name to many music fans, but now he will be remembered more because he will be featured on a stamp. Get ready to mail your letters with the Hendrix stamp on them.

“A new Forever stamp honoring Hendrix was released on Thursday as part of the U.S. Postal Service’s Music Icons series. Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, and Tejano musical pioneer Lydia Mendoza have also been honored in the stamp series.”

Hendrix’s sister, Janie Hendrix issued a statement thanking the United States Postal Service for bestowing such a high honor to her brother. Even though Jimi Hendrix has and continues to influence many artists today, this honor is indescribable. The honor of the United States Postal Service acknowledging one’s work is truly special.

“Forever stamps are always equal in value to the current first-class postage stamp price, currently 49 cents. Hendrix’s stamp is self-adhesive, and was created by artist Rudy Guttierez and designer Greg Breeding.”

  1. Jimi Hendrix was one of the acknowledged great musicians of all time. He orchestrated, sang, and played guitar (self taught) like a wizard. But his life style got the best of him. He knew it was coming and predicted the year of his untimely death. His extraordinary talent is still being honored and the forever stamp is a sign he is with us forever.

  2. Job scope at significant scale lies for forensic science experts at crime laboratories rub by city, county or state governments. The other region exactly where an individual searching for a career in forensic science can secure job are Federal agencies including the Departments of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Secret Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, Postal Inspection Service and other crucial departments, private labs and university laboratories is also a location of work for Forensic Science technician.
