ROY ORBISON STAMP LIKELY

Roy Orbison’s widow, Barbara, has announced that her late husband is under consideration to be immortalized on a U.S. postage stamp next year.

For the last two years, Barbara has led an effort to make the stamp a reality. Nearly 20,000 signatures have been collected on a petition for the stamp at royorbison.com—including the names of high-profile friends like U2 lead singer Bono, Dan Aykroyd and George Harrison’s widow, Olivia. "If Roy is selected, the postal service will make the announcement later this year, probably in October," Barbara told Nashville newspaper The Tennessean.
