Forever young musicians. Full list and rare facts. The list of «27 Club» is not limited to Amy Winehouse and Jim Morrison. In this unusual club more than 40 names! Richie Edwards, Dmitry Chekov, Alexander Korzhov, Mia Katherine Zapata, Igor Chumychkin, Pete da Freitas and many others!

So talented, so young. What other beautiful music could they give the world if they did not leave so early?


Johnny Holliday died at the age of 74, another rock star and idol of millions, Fredy Mercury, at 45, Bob Marley – at 36, and George Harrison of the legendary Liverpool Five at 58. However, the venerable age of leaving the life of rock musicians sooner exception than the rule.

It’s no secret that the flourishing of this rebellious trend in music coincided with the birth of the hippy movement, where experiments with cocktails from alcohol and drugs were considered the norm of behavior.

In addition, the success and demand brings the stars not only frenzied popularity among fans and super-profits from performances, but also courage, which in the rock environment is transformed into noisy parties with drinking and smoking grass. Nothing so damages health as bad habits and excessive use of doping of all kinds. Maybe that’s why, following the legend about the fatal for the poets of 37 years, a legend was born about the terrible boundary at the age of 27 with rock musicians. Pushkin and Arthur Rimbaud, Mayakovsky and Byron, Robert Burns and Velimir Khlebnikov died at 37, before reaching the forty-year mark. Jimmy Hendrix and Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Amy Winehouse died at 27. Is this an accident or a tragic pattern?

What initiated the myth of «Club 27», the sudden death of some rock stars at the peak of popularity and career at 27, is not fully understood. Of course, the desire of stars to explain the death of pets by a special combination of circumstances, some rock, which was originally present in their fate, is understandable. People-legends continue to live in the hearts of admirers, turning after death even more fables than in life.

It should be noted that, as a rule, all the early-departed stars each in their own way experienced their incomprehensibility, sometimes – rejection of the surrounding world. At the same time, stress relieved with the help of alcohol and drugs, trying to try on their writhing souls with a harsh and not pleasing reality. The halo of romance surrounds the death of these still fairly young people, whose lives were tragically cut short in take-off. But maybe these idols of millions could not go different? «» The stars do not change their orbits, the stars burn out, «remember?
