Don't Be An Amazing Musician

..if you wanna live past 27, that is.

The 27 Club, also occasionally known as the Forever 27 Club, is a popular culture name for a group of influential rock and blues musicians who all died at the age of 27, sometimes under mysterious circumstances. There is some debate as to the criteria used to include people in the “27 Club”. The impetus for the Club’s creation was the death of an unusual number of 27 year old prominent musicians within a two year period of time. Lists commonly include Hendrix, Morrison, and Joplin; Brian Jones is usually included too. Kurt Cobain is now often included due to his impact on music in more recent years.

I am a very superstitious person. Like I have certain rituals I must do before I do something like if I walk alone in a dark street, I bite my tongue (so the ghosts won't see you or something), when I say something bad, I always apologize to the universe and take back what I said (I fear karmaaaa). I also make sure I don't step over any corners with just one foot because I feel like there's a string attached to the tip and it'll stay with me 'til I make my other foot--wait, that's being OC, sorry.


Basically, I'm superstitious. So, hearing about this was pretty cool. I mean, music and lore...two of my favorite things in one! Heeee...know anyone else who ended up becoming a member of the 27 Club?
