Seems like the club just keeps on growing, unfortunately …

The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll is a non-fiction narrative that tells the history of rock & roll seen through the lives and legacies of 34 musicians[1] who each died at the age of 27 also known as The 27 Club. The 27s was created by Eric Segalstad, author, and Josh Hunter, illustrator. It was independently published, and distributed by Random House. The 27s won silver in the 2009 Independent Publisher Book Award for Popular Culture.The book was intended as equal parts music history book and visual journey, and weaves the lives of Robert Johnson, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and more than two-dozen other musicians into a narrative. Josh Hunter told Huffington Post that, “The artwork tells its own story as well. There are these other layers, these hidden symbols and cryptic messages that, if you’re alert to them, you’re going to find we’re packing-in as well.”

Strange Random Rock ‘n’ Roll Quote:

Punk is musical freedom. It’s saying, doing and playing what you want. In Webster’s terms, ‘nirvana’ means freedom from pain, suffering and the external world, and that’s pretty close to my definition of Punk Rock. – Kurt Cobain
