KFIX Rock News: Rush, Guess Who Stamps Debut In Canada

rushstampAfter becoming the first Canadian band to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April, Rush is back in the limelight thanks to a special new honor in their homeland.

The power trio is one of four music groups being recognized with Canadian postage stamps that went on sale Friday.

Rush’s stamp features the band’s famous “Starman” logo that appears on the back cover of their landmark 1976 album, 2112.

Also among the Canadian groups receiving their own stamps is The Guess Who.  The image on the veteran rock act’s stamp is the group’s classic maple leaf logo.

The other bands being acknowledged with stamps are alternative rockers The Tragically Hip and Montreal-based “folk-rock-urban” outfit Beau Dommage.

The new stamps are part of Canada Post’s Canadian Recording Artists series, which honors the living legends of the country’s recording industry.  Members of each group had input into the design of their respective stamps.

The stamps can be purchased now online at CanadaPost.ca/shop.
