Canada Honors Its Rock Heroes

Unlike most of the other countries, Canada Post issues stamps collections dedicated to the country’s most famous musicians on a regular basis. But while there were representatives of various genres before – including Paul Anka, Bryan Adams and Gordon Lightfoot – this year’s Canadian Recording Artist series features strictly rock bands. Four of them. It’s proggers RUSH (which goes hand in hand with their today’s induction into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Fame), hard riffing THE GUESS WHO, Quebec’s most beautiful artisans BEAU DOMMAGE and alternative formation THE TRAGICALLY HIP.

The latter choice may be surprising, especially as there’s no stamps for APRIL WINE or SAGA, yet it’s up to Canadians to decide. Till the next time, perhaps.

The souvenir list with all four stamps is available, rather cheap, here.
