Janis Joplin postage stamp

Linns Stamp News announced that a Janis Joplin postage stamp will be available in August via United States Postal Service. Poster-a-like design with the text Forever Janis Joplin USA. The stamp pane selvage includes a brief biography of Joplin below the 16 square stamps on the pane:

Janis Joplin (1943-1970) was a groundbreaking singer whose powerful, bluesy voice propelled her to the pinnacle of rock stardom. An icon of the 1960s, she was known for her uninhibited and soulful performances. Joplin is now recognized as one of the greatest rock singers of all time, as well as a pioneer who paved the way for other women in rock music.

Here she is at the Monterey Pop Festival with Big Brother and the Holding Company performing Ball And Chain:
