Amy Winehouse sadly passed away just hours ago. So far, there is little detail on the tragic incident, but what we do know is that Amy is not the first musician to ever tragically die at 27. In fact, Amy joins a group of possibly the most famous names ever in music that died far too young.
Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Brian Jones all tragically lost their lives at 27.
Is it a coincidence? Or maybe 27 is just an extremely unlucky for number for famous musicians. Either way, these artists will all go down in history as talented beyond their years but sadly, as tragic figures who lost their lives to the pitfalls of fame.
