A photograph of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II taken by rocker Bryan Adams will be used for a Canadian stamp.

The SUMMER OF '69 rocker took the picture while attending the Queen's Golden Jubilee celebrations in the summer of 2002.

Canadian postal service spokesperson CINDY DAOUST says of Adams, "He was looking to capture the mother and the grandmother in her, and I think he did that."

More than 10 million copies of Adams's Queen stamp will be produced in the first run, which will be issued on 19 December (03).

Adams was paid a "small honorarium" from the postal service for using his photograph.
