The term club 27 refers to the observed phenomenon that famous musicians die at a higher rate at the age of 27. Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse to name just a few, are members of this questionable club. The media is going wild whenever a new famous person enters this mysterious club. But is there a (statistical) truth behind this? Do musicians really die at a higher rate at the age of 27?
