Amy Winehouse joins a list of several other famous musicians who passed away at the age of 27 and some fans have labeled the group the “Forever 27 Club.” But does that mean there is a “27 curse”?

Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones and Robert Johnson were all famous musicians who died at the young age of 27. They are all a part of what some call the “Forever 27 Club” and victims of the “27 curse.”

But do you believe in that?

The problem with the “27 curse” theory is that many other talented musicians have passed away at other ages.

According to E! News, there are as many musicians who passed away at the age of 27 as there are at the age of 32.

So why is there talk of a 27 club and curse?

Well, one reason may be Kurt’s mother’s famous quote after her Nirvana passed away saying he had joined “the stupid club.”

Unfortunately, it looks like the club may exist at many different ages.
