It would be cool to see any of the Beatles on a stamp. But I don't think it will happen, because I think the honor is reserved for American citizens, but I could be wrong.

No...don't think you need to be American, cos I don't think Mother Theresa was, but she had a stamp. You do however need to be dead.

I don't think the musician has to be American but so far, no Beatles.

Probably because two of them are still alive.

I would certainly buy a rock legend stamp or just Jimi Hendrix.

Jimi was really cool and would deserve such an honor.

I'm surprised that the postal service still ignores him.

John Lennon with his anti-American stance probably counts him out.

But I don't think most people would care at this point.

Fans of the artist would collect the stamp and it would make money.

That's a stamp I'd love to have. I still enjoy Johnny Cash's music.
Johnny Cash was a rebel. He probably would've hated the idea.

But in the ten years since his death, Johnny Cash remains popular.

His style of singing was never my cup of tea but it was for real.

People sense that kind of music done with heart and guts.

He made an incredible comeback before his demise.

So did Roy Orbison.

Not so much anti-American more anti American Government and American politics. He loved America and the people.

That's a good point. He probably would have hated the idea. I didn't think his singing was that great, but I still enjoyed the music. I liked the songs he wrote and the instrumentation. That made his singing voice something I could accept as part of the package, especially given the lyrics.

The postal service is part of the American government.

Therefore, no John Lennon stamp.

Or is it because The Beatles were a British band?

Who knows?

Jimi Hendrix would be my choice for a postage stamp.

Anyway, the post office does what it does. Whatever.

I liked his work with Bob Dylan on "Nashville Skyline"

"Girl From North County"

Johnny Cash wasn't afraid to branch out, play with other musicians.

I was surprised how many guests he did duets with in his career.

"Hurt" was very deep. I couldn't help feel affected by its message.

I don't think many artists ever go that far but Johnny Cash did.

It was a chilling statement of death. He knew the end was coming.

I wonder what criteria has to be met to be considered for appearance on a postage stamp. Maybe it's cultural or historic impact. Two people that have been mentioned, are Elvis & Mother Theresa, which nobody could deny their cultural & historic impact.

Maybe they should consider a Hank Williams Sr. postage stamp.I'd like to see a Stevie Ray Vaughn stamp that would be cool.

One of the artists he recorded with was Nick Cave, whose work I've always liked.

Yes, "Hurt" was a deep, chilling song, given how soon he died after his wife June died.

The other day,I listened to one of my Elvis CD'S,`Elvis at Sun Record Company',and they did a terrific remastering job,through DSD technology,these songs never sounded more clean and crisp,in particular `Milkcow Blues Boogie'and`When It Rains,It Really Pours'.The story of Elvis at Sun Records is the most fabled of any artist there or any other label for two reasons.The first is ,of course,he became not only Sun's greatest artist,but the most popular and beloved recording star of all time,and second,unlike Johnny Cash,or Jerry Lee Lewis,or Carl Perkins,or Roy Orbison,who had previous professional experience ,having played in nightclubs and having their own bands,Elvis came into Sun Records straight out of the crackerbarrel,with no previous professional experience OF ANY KIND,but Sam Phillips gave the King his big,important break,and all us REAL Elvis fans[that excludes you,Queen Elvis]will be forever in his debt,peace out.
