The 27 Club Has Taken Many Too Soon


The 27 Club“, also known as “forever 27”, is the name that is given to rock musicians who had the unfortunate event of passing to young at the age of 27. Although some of these musicians didn’t die at the actual age of 27, they will always remain on this list because of their influences they had on the music industry. The causes of death differ greatly from things like suicide, overdosing on drugs, addictions to drugs and alcohol and even chocking on their own vomit. All members on this list will never have their next birthday and turn 28, they will be 27 forever.
