JOHN LENNON “FOREVER” STAMP IS COMINT TO A POST OFFICE NEAR YOU


The U.S. Post Office’s Music Icon series has honored Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, Jimi Hendrix, and Janis Joplin, and now fours after the initial announcement, a John Lennon stamp will be issued on September 7.
The image is a photo Bob Gruen shot for Lennon’s ‘Walls and Bridges’ album in 1974.
On the day of the stamp’s release a dedication service will be held in New York’s Central Park at Naumburg Bandshell, a short distance from the Dakota building on Central Park West when Lennon lived and was killed in 1980. The event itself is free and open to the public. – Steve Goddard
