The late Soda Stereo frontman appears on “one of the most anticipated stamps of recent years.”
Argentina’s postal service has issued a stamp honoring Gustavo Cerati, the late singer and guitarist best known as the frontman of the now legendary rock group Soda Stereo.
A picture of Cerati onstage is the image on the boldly colored stamp, part of the Argentine post office’s “Popular Idols” series. The stamp went on sale in Argentina yesterday (Oct 9).
“It is an honor to pay tribute through this stamp to an artist who transcended borders and through his talent and popularity extended the influence of Latin American music,” said a postal service announcement, which called the Cerati stamp one of the most anticipated in recent years.
