In 27: Janis Joplin acclaimed author Chris Salewicz examines Joplin's troubled and unconventional existence, and explains her profound musical influence. This is the fifth in a series of exclusive music ebooks, an ambitious project examining the perils of genius, celebrity and excess.

When singer Amy Winehouse was found dead at her London home in 2011, the press inducted her into what Kurt Cobain's mother named the 27 Club. "Now he's gone and joined that stupid club," she said in 1994, after being told that her son, the front man of Nirvana, had committed suicide. "I told him not to..." Kurt's mom was referring to the extraordinary roll call of stars who died at the same young age, including Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison of the Doors. All were talented. All were dissipated. All were 27. In this haunting book, author Howard Sounes conducts the definitive forensic investigation into the lives and deaths of the six most iconic members of the Club, as well as some lesser known members, to discover what, apart from coincidence, this phenomenon signifies. In a grimly fascinating journey through the dark side of the music business, Sounes uncovers a common story of excess, madness, and self-destruction. The fantasies, half-truths, and mythologies that have become associated with the Club are debunked. Instead, a clear and compelling narrative emerges, one based on hard facts, that unites these lost souls in both life and death.

Wer von den Göttern überreich gesegnet wird, wussten die alten Griechen, dem droht vorzeitiges Ableben. Im Rock'n'Roll heißt das: "Live fast, love hard and die young!" Dieser tragischen Lebensregel folgten viele: etwa Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain und Amy Winehouse, die den berüchtigten ›Club 27‹ bilden, weil alle mit nur 27 Jahren starben. Andere wurden im mittleren Alter Opfer ihres Ruhms und des damit verbundenen Lebensstils: Michael Jackson (50), Prince (57), Elvis Presley (42) oder Freddie Mercury (45). Ernst Hofacker erzählt diese tragischen Geschichten, bekannte und auch ein paar weniger bekannte, etwa die der Rockband Badfinger oder des R'n'B-Sängers Johnny Ace. Kenntnisreich und mit viel Sympathie zeichnet er die Karrieren und Schicksale der Musikerinnen und Musiker in einzelnen Porträts nach.

IS THE 27 CLUB JUST A MYTH? (No). Is it a curse? (No). But The 27 Club is not what you think. It s more than the deaths of Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and others. Using the teachings of the Moon Cycles and C. G. Jung s notion of the puer (the creative person who is always young beyond his years and often dies an early death, physical or emotional) Michael Owen explains what happens to all of us in our mid- to late-twenties. Not a book on astrology, THE 27 CLUB: WHY AGE 27 IS IMPORTANT gives new insights into the timing of crises and opportunities during our twenties and how events and decisions around age 27 can set the trajectory of our lives for the next 27 years. It explains the natural rhythm by which the psyche grows and matures, and looks at what happens when we under- or over-reach ourselves. The book sheds light on other questions: Why does life often take a turn for better or worse around age 27? Why were so many of The 27 Club from the sixties? What does science say about The 27 Club? Is The 27 Club just dead rock stars? What is the psychology of The 27 Club? What do our teens and early 20s have to do with age 27? And read about the other Clubs from 24 to 30. THE 27 CLUB: WHY AGE 27 IS IMPORTANT also explores the wider meanings of the Moon Cycles, a measure of time based on the length of human pregnancy, and the importance of the 9 month, 3 year (Little Moon) and 27 year (Big Moon) cycles. This calendar is applicable to all important events (the birth, growth and death of anything a life, a business, a relationship) and the ripples in time that it sends out. And read about the fascinating link between the 27 year cycle and 9/11. Michael Owen is a clinical psychologist in private practice and author of Jung and the Native American Moon Cycles and The Maya Book of Life: Understanding the Xultun Tarot. He lives in Aotearoa/New Zealand. www.kahurangi-press.com www.27-club.net www.xultun.com
