The 27 Club is a notional roll of remembrance, celebrating popular musicians who died at the age of twenty-seven. It originated with an unsupported claim of a ‘statistical spike’ for the death of musicians at that age, but this has been repeatedly disproved by research.
It remains a cultural meme, dramatising the early deaths of certain musical celebrities, noted for their high-risk lifestyles. The ‘club’ is generally taken to include Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse. Many other names are controversially put forward for inclusion, but as there is no official membership for the group, these claims and counter-claims are purely discursive.
