The 'Forever 27 Club' - Music's Growing List Of Stars Who Died At 27 Years Old

Amy Winehouse

The 'Forever 27 Club' has become more than a legend since the dawn of music recording. As it turns out, some of music's most influential artists who were taken from us much too soon all parted with the living at age 27. Is it a coincidence or a curse?

The latest 27-year-old to "join" this exclusive club is Amy Winehouse, who died Saturday at her London home. No one knows why or how yet, but initial speculation - most likely based on her past - is that drugs and/or alcohol were somehow involved.

Well, they played a big part in the deaths of these other stars who preceded her "in the club."
