Slideshow - Amy Winehouse joins the 27 Club

Live fast, die young?

The coincidence is baffling, to say the least. On July 23, 2011, British singer and multiple Grammy winner Amy Winehouse died, putting a premature end to a promising music career cut short by a self destructive lifestyle of alcoholism and substance abuse. She was aged 27 -- an ominous number.

The police is still investigating the cause of Winehouse’s death at her North London home, but the blues singer of hit songs like ‘Rehab’ and ‘Love is a losing game’ has, in her death, found a place in the 27 Club comprising of the singers, rockstars and musicians who died at 27.

The club includes names like Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Brian Jones, to name a few. And now the ‘Live Fast, Die Young’ credo has claimed a new victim in Winehouse and it does beg a pause to ponder what is it about the age 27. Is it mere coincidence, or is there something creepy going on here?

In the book The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock and Roll its authors Eric Segalstad and Josh Hunter lay out a list of 34 musicians who died at age 27. The stats are startling enough to lead one to believe that there is indeed something about the age 27 that makes it jinxed. Others, however, believe that what began as a coincidence has now turned into a club that many troubled rockstars and musicians covet to be part of.

Billy Joe from the band ‘Green Day’ has a 27 tattooed on him. According to Kurt Cobain’s biography, Heavier Than Heaven, Cobain’s sister said that, as a child, Cobain talked about wanting to join ‘the club’.

Coincidence or curse, the death of Amy Winehouse at 27 has kickstarted another debate about the myth or reality of the 27 Club.

We bring you some of the rock n roll martyrs of the club.
