    Hendrix truly was one of the forces of nature in rock. Will be seeking out these stamps.

    Never a stamp more vibrant — highly accomplished expressive art.

  • wil says:

    I rmemeber Jimi Hendrix only in connection with the drug addiction of my brother. It was a hellish time to be in when you see your brother look at you with devilish eyes and wanting to murder you just because he had just tasted some drugs. By the way, he was a fan of JH.

    Why should rock music produce such culture? Why can’t we have rock music that brings out the most humane side of individuals? Why should they be drawn into nefarious activities?
