I watched this program on, I believe it was the E Network today, entitled "The Curse Of 27". I must admit that I didn't realize that all of these Rock-n-Rollers were 27 years old when they passed on. Here's the list:
Brian Jones - "The Rolling Stones" - died in 1969 - drowned
Jimi Hendrix - died in 1970 - overdose
Janis Joplin - died in 1970 - overdose
Al Wilson - "Canned Heat" - died in 1970
Jim Morrison - died in 1971 - from a heart attack
Ron 'Pig Pen' McKernan - "The Grateful Dead" - alcohol - died in 1973
Gary Thain - "Uriah Heep" - overdose - died in 1976
Chris Bell - "Big Star" - car accident - died in 1979
D. Boon - "Minutemen" - car accident - 1985
Kurt Cobain - "Nirvana" - suicide - 1994
Jason Thirsk - "Pennywise" - suicide - 1996
I guess that I am just wondering what you all think of this "Curse Of 27". They interviewed folks on this show that are worried about Amy Winehouse, given her lifestyle and that she may die at 27, which I think she has a few years to go. And Brittany Spears, but some of them think that she is 'cleaning up her act' so she is 'safe' from the curse. Personally I think that it is just 'coincidental'. But then again, what do I know. It is all a little weird.
I don't mean to be morbid. Like I said, I watched this program today and really didn't realize that these folks were all 27 when they passed.

A tragedy. But isn’t it a fact that many in show business were superstitious about fellow artists’ dates of death? In particular, the overdosers might have pushed the button in a tradition of defiance. In their mind.. it was their belief that they might survive death and would put it to the test. The challenge was worth taking to overcome their superstition and to gain popularity.
It’s as good a theory as any other.
