 The 27 Club is one of the most elusive and remarkably tragic sets of coincidences in rock & roll history. The term became widely known after Kurt Cobain's death at 27, with rock fans connecting his age to that of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones and Jimi Hendrix. Then, in 2011, when Amy Winehouse passed away at age 27, it attracted even more attention to the significance of the age. While the club has primarily been connected to musicians it has expanded since too many young actors and artists who lost their lives due to everything from addiction to suicide to freak accidents. Here are some of the unfortunate and untimely losses connected to the club. (Image: Network18 Graphics)
