Musician Death Curse – Musician Amy Winehouse was a victim of the apparent death curse. Numerous performers have passed away at the age of 27. Is there really a supernatural case?

Amy Winehouse was the last musician to die at the young age of 27. The English singer-songwriter died of alcohol poisoning according to a coroner. She will forever be well-known for her powerful vocals and eclectic musical genres.

Other prominent musicians who died at 27 include: Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Brian Jones, Robert Johnson, and Pigpen McKernan.

Jim Morrison was a true rock hero, best known as the lead singer for The Doors. He was a severe alcohol and drug addict; so many people believe this contributed to his passing. However, there was no autopsy performed, so the cause of dead will never be known. Morrison will forever be remembered for his barbaric personality and memorable performances.

Janis Joplin was known as “The Queen of Psychedelic Soul” in addition to “The Queen of Rock and Roll.” Her passing was caused by an overdose of heroin, possibly combined with alcohol. In addition to her amazing career, she enjoyed dancing and painting.

Jimi Hendrix was a singer-songwriter and guitarist. To this day, he is considered by many to be the greatest guitarist in history. There have been allegations that Hendrix’s manager, Mike Jeffery, had him killed because he was going to let him go.

Kurt Cobain committed suicide by shooting himself in the head. In addition, his body had a large amount of heroin and traces of diazepam in it.

Brian Jones was one of the founding members of the Rolling Stones. His passing was ruled to be “death by misadventure.” His heart and liver were heavily enlarged by alcohol and drug abuse. Jones’ body was discovered at the bottom of his swimming pool.

All the above performers were into drugs. Their mortalities were either directly or indirectly a result of alcohol and/or drug abuse. So, perhaps it is not a musician death curse, just poor judgement.
