Culture Vulture: The 27 Club
Jimi, Jim, Janice, Brian Jones and Kurt Cobain — all members of the 27 club. At one point it was an idiotic belief that I’d be joining them: thank god that didn’t work out. I can sing but I don’t have the rock star chops — maybe rock star poet, to a degree. What does the world think of when it thinks of these people? — it thinks of what is lost. Who the hell would want to be part of that group? Sure, they had great creativity while they were alive but that wasn’t long enough and all of them died in pretty needless ways. They have some glamour but I am sure the death scenes were pretty off-putting. Better to carry on being creative than end up as a pretty corpse.
