The say people use when they are talking about the fact that all Jim Morrison, Robert Johnson, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, and Brian Jones died at the age of 27.

The myth to Forever 27 or the 27 Club is that all these artists had a white cigarette lighter in their pants pocket, except Jim Morrison because he died in the bathtub however the myth says his lighter was in his back pocket.

All of these people were left handed.
Forever 27 is so insane.

Five of the greatest musicians in human history; Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain; who all we called to heaven in their prime
Forever 27 is an inexplicable yet sobering tragedy

an unexplainable coincidence that Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Kurt Cobain all died at the age of 27. forever 27 meaning they will all stay 27 forever, preserved like a fossil, frozen in time, never to be forgotten. they were all pioneers in the rock world, Janis Joplin with her distinctive style and crushing vocals, Jim Morrison with his poetic lyrics, Jimi Hendrix the most amazing guitarist ever, Kurt Cobain pioneered the way of alternative rock in the early 90s. They will all have a place in our hearts. Never Forget, Forever 27
Forever 27 was a tragedy in the world of rock n roll, never forget.

A rare coincidence of some of the greatest singers who all died at age 27. Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Janis Joplin.

Also a painting of Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and Janis Joplin in what appears to be heaven.

The ever so cool musicians/poets, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison that all died when they were 27 years old.

Painting of Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison, and they are all standing in heaven. Kurt is walking through the door frame, since he was the most recent addition. They all happened to die at age 27.
They are forever 27.
