Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and Amy Winehouse all died at what age?
The 27 Club has become one of the most elusive and remarkably tragic coincidences in the history of rock & roll. The term became widely known after Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994, with rock fans connecting his age to that of Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, and Jimi Hendrix, who all died within two years of each other in the early 1970s. In 2011, Amy Winehouse’s death at age 27 drew additional attention to the significance of the age. While the club has been largely connected to musicians, it has since expanded to include young actors and artists who have all died at the age of 27.
The correct answer is 27.
