Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Sid Vicious, Jacob Miller, etc...what do they have in common?
They all died at age 27.
There's a myth of this 27 club dating as far back as the late 80's, and who knows if this is true. And only the biggest stars of any music era seemed to be coincidental to their deaths.
Kurt burning out rather than fading away, according to some unconfirmed account, was part of his plan to join this prestigious 27 club.
