Storyline

Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all died at the age of 27 between 1969 and 1971. At the time, the coincidence gave rise to some comment, but it was not until the death of Kurt Cobain, about two and a half decades later, that the idea of a "27 Club" began to catch on in public perception, reignited with the death of Amy Winehouse in 2011. Through interviews with people who knew them, such as music stars, critics, medical experts and unseen footage, the lives, music, and artistry of those who died at 27 are investigated with a bid to find answers.

No insight, no point
12 May 2018 | by bishbash73See all my reviews

I was hoping for some insight into the reasons for the untimely deaths of some of my favourite artists, but all you get is cheesy back ground music and some random people who say heroin lots of times and that they had a difficult upbringing. The fact is that the 27 club is nonsense, all these genuine talented musicians resorted to drinking excessively and using hard drugs for many different reasons and to try and badge this as a club is pointless and disrespectful. Total waste of time, go and search out the real stories of each of these special talents for your self, read, listen and YouTube.
