The 27 Club


The forever 27 club is a term to refer to a list of musicians and artists who have all died at the age of 27. These people have died from tragic circumstances including overdoses, suicide, and homicide. This club has had much speculation surrounding it with people wondering if there is something bigger going on. There have been multiple theories and statistical studies devoted to this club. Although there is no concrete proof or evidence of anything going on the number of musicians who had died at 27 is very remarkable.


Jimi Hendrix died on September 18, 1970 from a drug overdose and possible suicide.


Janis Joplin died on October 4, 1970 from a drug overdose.


Jim Morrison died on July 3, 1971 from heart failure.


Kurt Cobain died on April 5, 1994 from suicide by gunshot.


These are just some of the more talked about deaths of musicians who were 27 years old. Although it is unknown why or even if there is any reason for these deaths happening at the age of 27, it does give people a reason to talk. It is a little strange that there is such a high number of musicians and artists who have died at this young age.  Plenty of dead rappers have joined these ranks as well, unfortunately.
