#66 – The 27 Club


The 27 Club

There have been a shocking number of artists who have all died at the same very young age, early into what was already a hugely successful and influential career, but should have been a long and legendary career. They are The 27 Club. We discuss the major figures that the public most associates with this club — Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse — but we bring in a bunch of other members as well, like artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan of the Grateful Dead, D. Boon of The Minutemen, Echo and the Bunnymen drummer Pete de Freitas, Mia Zapata of the Gits, Kristen Pfaff of Hole, actor Anton Yelchin, and more. We discuss why there’s a 27 Club (when there could equally be a 26 Club or a 28 Club, etc) and why people have historically been so fascinated by it.

Afterward, we name our Picks of the Week, including new releases by Peter Gabriel, Metallica, Ghost, Frank Bango, The National, Cathedral Bells, and The Crocodiles, plus a show by The Church of the Cosmic Skull
