The stamp collections of legendary rock stars John Lennon and Freddie Mercury are going on display in London next month-completely dispelling the myth that all stamp collectors are boring!!

Both Mercury and Lennon were avid stamp fans as children but both apparently dropped the hobby once they hit their teens. The pair are among a small but impressive list of famous philatelist's which includes Queen Elizabeth II, Charlie Chaplain and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The collections are on display at this years Stampex exhibition in London between September 14-17.
