Stamp question for Ken by kazzzz on 3 October 2009 10:52am
 
I have a question for you, I know the answer and don't want you to google the answer or anything but do you know??? I bet you do!!

There was a UK stamp of Freddie Mercury printed for the millenium and in the background was Roger Taylor ( drummer of Queen).
Why did this stamp cause controversy and why is it so unusual?

Here's an image of it.

First time I've seen it, but I would suppose that left hand looks a little like something else? lol

NO!!!!

SHirtless with the queen?

By the way, the bottom half of the stamp is very small and I can't see any details.

Pats it's nothing you could guess really. I wondered if Ken knew coz he's so into stamps and reads the mags, and this would be known in those circles.

I'm a collector too but don't read the mags or go to lengths to get certain ones. But my collection is huge. Have been collecting since I was 5.

I think I know this one. Is it because, apart from the monarch obviously, only dead people are supposed to be on stamps - and Mr Taylor is still with us?

That's it exactly Louise! Got it in one! In the UK the only living people allowed on postage stamps are members of the royal family.

OH! I thought that was Freddie Mercury, Kaz. No wonder I didn't know the anser! That's how tiny the stamp appeared to me! hahahahahahahaha

BTW, who is Mr. Taylor?

That's Roger at the back of the stamp Pats. The drummer from Queen. It's very hard to see! And Freddie at the front of course.
