The 27 Club has been around for a while. Its members include musicians who all died at the age of 27. Some of them are considered to be among the most talented of their generation; however, because they struggled with drug and alcohol addiction, their lives were unnecessarily cut short. Some of the musicians that we have on this list are not as well known as the others, which is why they haven’t been mythologized in the same way. We have rounded up some of the more famous members of the 27 Club. It’s a pretty exclusive club – see for yourself!
10. Brian Jones
Brian Jones was the founder and original bandleader of the Rolling Stones. He died less than a month after he left the band. He had been struggling with alcohol and drug addiction and died under rather questionable circumstances. He was found at the bottom of his swimming pool. Police ruled that his death was caused by “misadventure.”http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/frickes-picks-radio-the-blues-and-genius-of-brian-jones-20140813 Source: Rolling Stone
