overview

Let’s take a look at why so many great young rock talents die at 27 years old.  Was it money, fame, suicide, or just plain old drug abuse?  I have been tracking this phenomenon for at least 20 years.  Long before Kurt Cobain, Shannon Hoon, Amy Winehouse, and Brad Nowell died at that tragic age… I was watching.

Sure, there is the ‘big 3’ of Hendrix, Morrison, and Joplin.  All 27, and all dead within a year of each other.  Before that, though, we had:  Brian Jones, Robert Johnson, Pigpen, and list goes on.  I want to look at all of them, as a whole.  This will involve sweeping generalties.  Be aware of that up front.  I am speaking on the whole, at the meta level… but it will all be backed up with specific examples.

For now, I am breaking the site up in to themes around the main concept.  Each discussion theme has it’s own page up top.  This is my way of working in an outline to keep my thoughts organized.
