The 27 Club is an expression universally used to describe an eerie private club where the members are famous musicians who died at the age 27. They were some of the most talented individuals of their respective generation; Robert Johnson, Jimi Hendrix and Brian Jones to name a few who passed prematurely, but not before they graced us with their genius.
This book is a both literary and visual documentation of 27 members of the 27 Club. The members mentioned are selected on the basis of how famous they were and their cause of death; which highlights the effects and pressures of fame on young celebrities.
Digressing, the number 27 has historical significance in religion, mathematics, numerology and philosophy. For example, in the midst of ancient Inca Folklore there was a belief that 27 roads led to El Dorado - ruin or destruction. An apt allegory through the substance abuse, homicide or suicide.
