Rush Immortalized on New Stamp
As if finally being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame weren’t enough, the members of Rush are receiving another high honor. The Canadian progressive rock trio have been chosen as one of a series of rock acts featured in the Canadian Recording Artists stamp series, issued by Canada Post.
A preview of the stamp has been issued in advance of next week’s Juno Awards, which are the Canadian equivalent of the Grammys. Beau Dommage, the Guess Who and the Tragically Hip are also featured in the series.
“This year’s series features Canadian bands that have shaped the music industry in Canada,” says Jim Phillips, Director of Stamp Services for Canada Post (quote via Blabbermouth). “Each band has achieved national acclaim, along with international radio airtime and extensive tours.”
The Canadian Recording Artists stamp series will be available at all Canada Post locations beginning on July 19, or online at the official website.
Rush will be officially inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in a ceremony tonight (April 18), which will air in an edited version on May 18 on HBO.
