Top 10 Members of the '27 Club'The top ten popular musicians who died at the age of 27, often times as a result of drugs or alcohol.
The Top Ten
Seriously, how has nobody voted for Jimi Hendrix? He was one of the most influential guitarists ever as well as one of the most important icons in music!
He died in one of the most horrible ways possible at such a young age and way too soon! Yet he achieved so much in such a short career, just like Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, etc.!
I did a project at school about him
Kurt Cobain was the leader of one of the most important bands ever: Nirvana! That revolutionized the grunge music and revived rock. Although Hendrix was also very important, Cobain was the best. He's a legend!
He was a idiot who shot himself..leaving his wife his fans and his daughter to wonder why
Better Than Cobain - Lmeister
The Doors took the 60s from “I want to hold your hand” to “Break on Through” Jim Morrison deserves to be higher than Cobain
Without him, the rolling stones wouldn't exist. RIP - KillerQueen1774
Easily the most underrated Stone. He was actually very talented and didn't deserve to die in such a horrible way. (Drowning is my worst fear! ) - MontyPython
"I met a girl who sang the blues. I asked her for some happy news. She just smiled and looked away. " - Don McClean
Her unique style can still be heard today - Amyk
Amy Winehouse was (and still is) a jazz and motown legend... She paved the way for Adele and many others in the music industry with her strong voice, and genuinely raw and emotional lyrics. Although she did have problems with addictions and a stormy relationship with her husband, Blake, she still inspired many people around the world with her music... She will always be remembered by those who she touched with her music. RIP Amy Jade Winehouse.
He created Rock and Roll
I love the stuff Pigpen did with the Dead. He was a great blues singer and a great harmonica player too. Rest in peace! - Gg2000
Guitarist for the band Big Star, which gained a large cult following.
He's the guitarist for psychedelic rock group Stone The Crows. - HardRockSam
He was a great lyricist and the perfect example that sometimes troubled minds make the most intelligent ones. Battled with mental illness, self-harm and anorexia. Richey was a demostration of what a strong person is really like.
He may not have died. He went missing and was never found. He almost certainly died... but their is an extremely small chance that he is alive.
Most people probably don't know her, but she's very famous here in Spain - Martinglez
GET HIM OFF THIS IS MUSICIANS ONLY
He actually played guitar for a band called The Hammerheads before becoming big on-screen, so technically, he qualifies. - CrimsonShark
