I realised a while ago that some famous people died roughly at the same age. At first I only noticed Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, but after some thought (and after conversation with an ex-junkie christian friend of mine) that there are alot more, not just musicians. I thought about it all the way walking home today and composed a list:

Jimi Hendrix - 27 - Drugs (Debatabley)
Kurt Cobain - 27 - Shotgun shell taken under the influence of drugs
Gia Carangi - 26 (Yeah, whatever...) - AIDS... As a result of drugs.
Robert Johnson - 27 - Poison/Stabbed/Whatever...
Jim Morrison - 27 - Drugs.
Janis Joplin - 27 - Drugs (Technically manslaughter, if you think about it. And then there was all the syphillis...)

Pretty small list, but I bet there's more. I just thought it was funny, and if you happen to be around 27 and famous, watch out.

Anyone got any others to add to my list?

...Yes... They had this on muchmoremusic I think....
"The 27 club" I believe.
McLovin is my hero!

It's not the going that the pit cares about.
It's the coming.

27 club, eh?

Hmm, this has nothing to do with human beings' inherent desire to find patterns in things where there is no pattern at all, to make it seem more special and/or symbolic.

Well, most musicians make it past 27. It's just easier to say "27 club" then it is to say all their names......

You mean the 27 club?
I play by my own rules. And I have one rule; There are no rules... but if there are, they're there to be broken. Even this one.


Confused? Good.

Hence the "27 club", noob. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/27_club


at the oddly casual title of the "Just missed it" section.

27 club? If you flip the 2 upside down you get an s, and if you swap club and 7, you get S CLUB 7!

I was born on the 27th. Does that count? haha jk but I think it's weird how all the good musicians die around that age. That reminds me of the song Superstar II by Saliva. There's a line that goes "I did my best to make to 27"

There was a popular local punk band around here called "Dead at 27". Too bad they sucked and are all probably going to live to be 70 year old retired real estate agents or some boring thing.

there's bands that started before the members we're 27 and are still going, so imo this isn't anything that important.
