The 27 Club

27_Club_Poster.jpg
Another reason to party hardy when you turn 28: you are still alive. The 27 Club refers to the many celebrities (especially in music) who died at age 27. I had no idea there were so many! The top musicians include Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, and Robert Johnson. Yeah, I didn’t miss their deaths, but the age thing is a bit weird. Wikipedia also lists less prominent members and near misses. There’s even a tribute MySpace page.
