by | Oct 29, 2021 | 0 comments

Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse.. all superstars, all members of the “27 Club”. Are talented musicians really more likely to die aged 27? We examine this thorny subject, and put forward some more names for consideration. What were we like at that age? What were YOU like? What was topping the charts when we were 27?

Also in the show, our recent Culture Catch-Up of things that caught our eye and ears since Episode 2. A new blog on the songs of The Teardrop Explodes. Pete Doherty, Chris Eubank, and is “Ironic” really ironic? And more!
