Forever 27 – Who Is The Next Musician Member Of The Club?

Tweet I recently got to wondering who would be the next member of the 27 club, after a talk with some friends. Who will be the next famous rock star to die at 27 and become a member of this exclusive and mysterious group? The last really big star who met her death at 27 was Amy Winehouse, but there is bound to be another coming along. We thought about it and decided it might be a good idea to come up with a list of possibilities. First, we would list any famous rocker that was under 28 years old.  … Continue reading

The Arrested Development Theory Of Forever 27 Club Membership

Tweet While some of the more skeptical people out there won’t even accept the underlying idea of the forever 27 club, others seek theories and concepts to try to explain it. After all, if you don’t think there’s any significance to the fact that many musicians and musical celebrities died in their 27th year, then there’s no need to explain anything. But for those of us who see a pattern, the temptation to come up with a reasonable explanation is nearly overwhelming.

Forever 27 Club Rap, Hip Hop And Violent Deaths

Tweet We tend to think of the members of the forever 27 club as being rockers, probably because of the popular poster that shows the most prominent members at the time of Kurt Cobain’s death.

The rap and hip-hop genre is well-represented too, even though many deaths in that musical arena have happened … Continue reading

Famous Musicians And The 27 Club Jinx – Or Curse?

Tweet What is a jinx or a curse? It’s a supernatural idea that has its origins in the worlds of black magic, sorcery, and voodoo, and has a long tradition in many cultures. The basic idea is that a human with special powers, a spirit entity, or a vaguely evil force of some kind develops a problem with some person.

Scott Lobaido Forever 27 Poster Meaning – People And Symbols

Tweet Scott Lobaido created the Forever 27 poster after the death of Kurt Cobain as a tribute to 4 artists who are members of the 27 club. The piece is a puzzle of sorts – kind of like the i-spy books. The basic style of the painting is a mash-up of Salvador Dali, the famous surrealistic painter, and M.C. Escher. This is the first clue – that all is not what it appears to be, up here floating above the real world. A room that is only partially complete hangs in a beautiful blue sky, while in the background there … Continue reading

Musicians Dead At 27 – Looking For Patterns In The Number

Tweet We humans love to see patterns in our lives and in the world around us. We love to observe something, then see it again, then see a connection of some kind between the two events. Those of us who are religious and believe in a god who intervenes in our lives see evidence of an invisible hand guiding our actions and those of others according to a planned pattern. Much of descriptive science is about looking for patterns of behavior in the natural world, which become ways to explain why things happen the way they do. Even if the … Continue reading
