Publisher Comments:

Is rock and#39;nand#39; roll cursed? This expanded edition of the music fanand#39;s favorite explores the question, adding six new biographies to the sad list of loss. Although drugs and excess led to many of these premature passings, Rolling Stone journalist Michele Primi also investigates other mysteries, including the death of John Lennon and the myth of the andquot;27 Clubandquot;andmdash;the many artists (like Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Amy Winehouse) who died in the seemingly ill-fated year following their 27th birthday.

Synopsis:

Is there a curse on rock 'n' roll? The death of one of the purest musical talents in recent years, Amy Winehouse, has reopened this and many other questions. The and#8220;27 Cluband#8221; really does exist--but that's just the beginning. If there's a house band in the afterlife for young adults whose promise was tragically cut short, it's a pretty fair bet that the artists in this volume are there:and#160; Robert Johnson, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, Jeff Buckley, and more.
