The 27 Club – Members
The 27 Club has become one of the most elusive and remarkably tragic coincidences in rock & roll history, and includes popular musicians, artists and/or actors that have died at age 27.
The term became widely known after Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994, with rock fans connecting his age to that of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, and Jimi Hendrix – though it was notable to fans in the early 1970s when those four visionaries died within just two years of each other.
The following list are members who are contained herein:
- Brian Jones
- Jean-Michel Basquiat
- Janis Joplin
- Pete Ham
The Curse of the 27 Club Over the last few decades, dozens of musical superstars have died – often dramatically – at the early age of 27. ‘The 27 Club’ has gained much infamy, its members including household names such as Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse.
