The infamous 27 Club is a group of classic rock music’s deceased elite, consisting of prominent rockers who died unexpectedly and far too young, at the age of 27. They five most popular examples are Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, and Amy Winehouse. Though they existed in various eras of music, they shared a similarly-timed demise, at the height of their careers and often due to drug and/or alcohol abuse.

Around the age of 27, musicians have nearly twice the death rate of the general public. Is the 27 Club a true “curse” or a myth fueled by the addictions typical of the industry? A new infographic by Clarity Way Rehab presents the facts.
