Died Young Artists phenomena and "The Curse of 27" The death of British singer, Amy Winehouse, recently raised intriguing questions. Why are many famous musicians have died when he was at the peak of his career and he was still quite young?

He fared about the same as a number of other famous musicians who died at the age of 27 years. They are Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, and Robert Johnson. Joplin, Hendrix, Morrison, and Jones even death row in a two-year time difference between the one and the next one.
