The first musical members of the 27 Club

The 27 club is a group of artists who have all died in a variety of way, drugs overdose , alcoholism ,suicide, plane crash, traffic accident, natural causes or murder. The one thing they had in common was their age, the all died aged 27.

It all started off when Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Jim Morrison all died at the age of 27 between 1969 and 1971. At the time, the coincidence gave rise to some comment, but it was not until Kurt Cobain’s 1994 death, at age 27, that the idea of a “27 Club” began to catch on in public perception.[Blues musician Robert Johnson, who died in 1938, is the earliest popular musician who has been included in the members of the 27 Club, although there were two other musicians before him who died age 27.

Alexandre Levy ,a Brazilian composer, Levy died prematurely at 27 and is considered to be the first musical artist to die at the age. His hometown, Sao Paulo , grants a prestigious award in his name.

Louis Chauvin (March 13, 1881 – March 26, 1908) was an American ragtime musician.

His death certificate lists causes of death as “multiple sclerosis, probably syphilitic”, and starvation due to coma, but a modern diagnosis probably would conclude he had a neurosyphilitic sclerosis and not link it to multiple sclerosis.
