about

Welcome to the 27 Club, also referred to as the Forever 27 Club, Club 27 or the Curse of 27. The 27 Club is so called because of influential musicians and singers who all died at the age of 27. They are generally respected for having lived the "rock and roll" lifestyle.

The 27 Club is divided into two groups, the first is a list of seven famous musicians and singers who died at the age of 27, consisting of blues singer and musician Robert Johnson (considered to be the first member of the 27 Club), Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouse. The second part is the idea that many other popular musicians and singers have also died aged 27.

The impetus for the club's creation were the deaths of Jones, Hendrix, Joplin and Morrison. Kurt Cobain, who died in 1994, was later added, and then Amy Winehouse in 2011 due to extensive media coverage of her death relating to the 27 Club. With the exception of Joplin and Winehouse, there is controversy surrounding their deaths. Apparently when Kurt Cobain died, his sister claimed that as a kid he would talk about how he wanted to join the 27 Club.
