Gigwise looks into the ‘dead at twenty-seven’ phenomenon

Most rock fans know to hold their breath when their favorite musicians turns twenty-seven. The cursed age for rock and rollers has famously claimed Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain, but also Robert Johnson, Brian Jones, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, and Minutemen guitarist D. Boon. In fact, Gigwise was able to find twenty-one musicians who met with an untimely end at twenty-seven. While it’s hard to think that there is some sort of cosmic significance to the age, it would seem impossible to compile such a list for any other year. [Gigwise]
