Amy Winehouse joins the “club” of great musicians dead at 27

Amy Winehouse, who died Saturday of unknown causes, joined a large group of musicians who died at the age of 27, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain.

This is considered the greatest myth of rock n’ roll and now it is brought to attention due to Amy Winehouse’s death, which occurred on Saturday. The cause of death hasn’t yet been officially announced by investigators, although the press has speculated that might be an overdose.

Born September 14, 1983, Amy Winehouse never got to be 28. She had the same fate as Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Brian Jones.

In an interview in 2008, the singer’s mother Janis, seeing how Amy was negatively affected by her own success and struggled with addiction, said at one point: “I’ve known for a long time that my daughter has problems. But seeing it on screen rammed it home. I realize my daughter could be dead within the year. We’re watching her kill herself, slowly.”

She continued: “I’ve already come to terms with her dead. I’ve steeled myself to ask her what ground she wants to be buried in, which cemetery. Because the drugs will get her if she stays on this road. I look at Heath Ledger and Britney. She’s on their path. It’s like watching a car crash – this person throwing all these gifts away.”

Amy now joins the famous 27 Club, a group of musicians who have all died at this fateful age.

Brian Jones, one of the founding members of The Rolling Stones, was found dead in his swimming pool in 1969 at the age of 27.

He was followed by the great guitarist Jimi Hendrix, who drowned in his own vomit after a combination of alcohol and drugs in London in 1970.

A month later, singer Janis Joplin died of an overdose of heroin and more than a year later, Jim Morrison, lead singer of The Doors, was found dead in a bathtub in Paris after a heart attack.

The group continued to grow with the famous Kurt Cobain, who killed himself in 1994.
