The 27 Club, also occasionally known as the Forever 27 Club, Club 27 or the Curse of 27, is the title for an epitomic group of influential musicians who all died at the age of 27. The impetus for the club's creation were the deaths of Jones, Hendrix, Joplin and Morrison. Cobain, who died in 1994, was later added by some, along with Winehouse in 2011, due to extensive media coverage of her death relating to the club. With the exception of Joplin, there is controversy surrounding their deaths.
