27 Club

27 Club

Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and many more musical icons all died at the age of 27. Scandalous, tortured, dramatic, and incredibly talented, these artists torched a wild path to their early graves and shifted and shaped our culture along the way. 27 Club tells their stories. Season one tells the story of Jimi Hendrix in 12 episodes. Season two tells the story of Jim Morrison of the Doors in 12 episodes. And now, Season 3 brings you the story of Janis Joplin. 27 Club is hosted and created by Jake Brennan, host and creator of the award-winning music and true crime podcast DISGRACELAND. 27 Club is not a journalistic podcast. It is an entertainment podcast inspired by true events. Certain dialogue and scenes are sometimes fictionalized for dramatic purposes as they are in most scripted entertainment media based on true events. Sources for each episode are available at 27clubpod.com.
