(hennemusic) On the day Rush will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, Canada Post unveiled a new postage stamp of the music icons.

The homegrown move is actually timed to this week's Juno Awards, the country's annual music event celebrating Canadian music.

Rush are one of four acts honored as part of the Canadian Recording Artist stamp series, to be released on July 19; for the first time, the collection features Canadian bands.

Rush, The Guess Who, Beau Dommage and The Tragically Hip will be spotlighted in this fourth issue in a series created to honour musical legends.

"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. "Each band has achieved national acclaim, along with international radio air-time and extensive tours."
