Abstract:

A history of the "27 Club" (music stars who died at 27), examining its six most iconic members.

Imagine a club that people are dying to get into-- literally! Sounes examines the lives of six musicians and singers who died at the age of 27, plus other music industry figures who died at that age, to discover what-- apart from coincidence-- this phenomenon signifies. He discovers a common story of excess, madness, and self-destruction.
