Uptown pays tribute to '27 Club' members

Bringing back the dead

October 20, 2011

There is a club in the music industry that has become known as the 27 Club and musicians are just dying to get into it - literally. Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and, most recently, Amy Winehouse, all "members" of the club, didn't make it past their 27th birthdays, either from drug overdoses or other unexplained causes of death. The unfortunate deaths may have caused an end to their album-making days, but that doesn't stop others from helping their music live on.
