For the first time ever, the Beatles are going to be on officially issued UK stamps! The stamps are going to be of famous Beatles album covers. John,Paul,Ringo and George can keep an eye on your letter or bill!

Yes. I was surprised that this was the first time they have appeared on stamps authorized by the UK.

There are many stamps, from different countries, that show national celebrities that have had an impact on politics, arts or sciences. The Beatles therefore deserve to feature on UK stamps. How about Black Sabbath or iron Maiden now? ;)

Yes, that is true. However, I thought it was very strange that they had never been on a UK stamp before!
