The 27 Club

Happy Monday!

This Monday it was particularly hard to get out of bed and get going. I didn't get back to the city until a little after midnight so a 6 am wake up call was out of the question. The weekend itself was laid back but such a blast, oh well, 4 more days until the next!

I didn't have a chance to address Amy Winehouse's death, but what sad news. Though it was no surprise that she was a heavy drug and alcohol user, she was still an amazing talent.

And as brought to my attention by Amanda's dad yesterday, Winehouse, is yet another to join the 27 club, which began in the 1970s with the deaths of Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison who all died within a few months of each other and at the age of 27. Leaving them in the "27" or "Forever 27 club." The list later included Kurt Cobain who died in 1994 along with many many others.

Janis Joplin:
Kurt Cobain:
Jimi Hendrix:
Jean Michel Basquiat(New York artist and musician):

Again such great talent gone to waste.

Sorry to start the week with such a somber post, will be back later.
