Kurt and The Curse of 27

Nirvana guitarist and singer Kurt Cobain took his own life 17 years ago, on April 5, 1994. His mother, Wendy O’Connor, famously said: “Now he's gone and joined that stupid club… I told him not to join that stupid club.”

The “stupid club” was not just that of suicides. Cobain was 27 years old, and many legendary rockers have died at a youthful 27. Coincidence? Or the rock ’n’ roll curse of 27?
