so i've been invited to a friends 27th birthday party. it's a costume dealio where we've gotta dress up as some 'creative or artistic genius who, in fact, died soon after their 27th birthday (by their own hand or natural causes).' i dunno about the genius part, but you get the idea, no?

i'm thinkin janis would be a good one, but how about some other options? preferably female, but who else to add to the list?

jimi hendrix

jim morrison

Ritchie Valens was 17 when he died.

The song Donna was his biggest all-time hit and first million seller. It was a two-sided hit and the flip side 'La Bamba' was a traditional Spanish song which Ritchie sang in Spanish after adding a rock'n'roll beat to it. He was a hero to Mexican-American communities, just a young boy but a hero. A flip of a coin sealed his fate.

Here's a few more for you ( I'm pretty sure quite a few jazz and blues guys never made it past their 27th year too):

I know Hendrix was mentioned, but the guy on the left was not:

Al Wilson from Canned Heat:

Gary Thain from Uriah Heep:

Chris Bell from Big Star

And of course, this band never tragically never made it to 27:
