Club 27

 
We have heard of all kinds of clubs..some formed on virtue of interests,fame,great achievements etc etc,but here is a club comprising of influential rock and blues musicians who all died at the age of 27, sometimes under mysterious circumstances.


   











There is some debate as to the criterion used to include musicians who died at the age of 27 in the "27 Club".
The impetus for the club's creation were the deaths of a seemingly unusual number of prominent 27-year-old musicians within a two-year period of time, exactly: Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison.Morrison and Jones died on the same date two years apart.This phenomenon has had such a prefound impact that there is book named"The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll" which was published in 2008.
