The 27 Club: Rock Stars Who Died Aged 27

Fact checked
the 27 club

So many talented musicians have passed away at the tender age of 27 – Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse to name but three.

Why is this? Is it just coincidence?

Whatever you believe, The 27 Club has become a part of rock history and is – you have to admit – just a little a bit freaky!

My love of fashion and music led me - several decades ago - into working for some of Britain’s top-selling magazines, specialising in news, reviews, fiction, features, astrology and quizzes.

These days, as a journalist, writer and editor I write a wide variety of features, frivolous and serious. I work mainly for women's magazines and national newspapers and also enjoy writing for independent news outlets and websites - the sort that publish stories the mainstream media fail to report.

  1. Why do you think they call it “dope”?
    It would be helpful if you could name the other ones. Not every one liked rock music or was a pothead when they were young.
