The curse of the club of 27

The curse of the club of 27 86

Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain or Amy Winehouse. They all have something in common: the age of their death. They have since been part of a very closed circle of which no artist wishes to belong: the Club of 27.

A look back at a phenomenon that is now part of the collective unconscious, as well as the list of personalities who died at the age of 27 and are part of the Club of 27.

Club of 27

Between July 1969 and July 1971, the rock movement invaded the airwaves. Many rock artists have reached their peak and are adored by fans. The concerts of groups like the Rolling Stones or The Doors provoke delirious crowds! But very quickly, a wave of tragic events will sadden a mass of idols, and intrigue the spirits.

The first missing from the club of 27: the beginning of the curse

Brian Jones

Brian Jones

It all started on July 3, 1969. Brian Jones, founder of the Rolling Stones, was found dead at the bottom of his swimming pool by a friend whom he had invited. Two years earlier, he began to experience a dark period when drugs and his romantic failures gradually prevented him from playing properly. His changing character and his lifestyle lead Keith Richards, guitarist of the group, to tell him that he would not reach his 30th birthday.

Under pressure from him and Mick Jagger, he left the group in June 1969. His death then became a source of rumors. Some would go so far as to say that he was the victim of a murder in which Mick Jagger and Keith Richard allegedly participated. However, a name remains cited on multiple occasions: it is Frank Thorogood, a builder who came to carry out renovations to Brian Jones’ residence. Indeed, following a conflict that occurred on the night of July 3 to 4, the two men began to drink before diving into the pool.

But Brian Jones, thinking of going to sleep shortly before the conflict, broke out, had taken sleeping pills. Would the mixture of these substances be enough to cause his death? Or would Frank Thorogood help him? The doctor called to the scene of the tragedy, then pronounces the death, but the autopsy report concludes in an accident. He was buried 7 days later, he was only 27 years old. What followed was a series of almost similar dramas that upset the music scene, especially the rock and blues genre.

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix

A little over a year later, on September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix was found dead in a hotel in London. The official cause of his death is said to be due to an overdose of barbiturates which he allegedly consumed with alcohol. He allegedly died of asphyxiation during his sleep, drowned in his vomit.

But rumor has it that it was a homicide carried out by his manager who made him drink alcohol with barbiturates by force. Jimi Hendrix will be buried on October 1, 1970. He was also only 27 years old.

Janis Joplin

Janis Joplin

Three days after Hendrix’s funeral, it’s Janis Joplin’s turn. It was October 4, 1970, when she was found dead from an overdose of heroin in her hotel room. She was working the day before on an album at the age of 27.

Jim Morrison

Jim Morrison

Almost a year has passed since Joplin’s death. It is July 3, 1971 when a new drama occurs, helping to establish in peoples minds the legend of the club of 27: the co-founder of the Doors, Jim Morrison, found dead in his bath after a heart attack. The circumstances of his death remain unclear however. His values ​​considered immoral by some as well as an overwhelming success of the group made him lose ground.

Drowning in alcohol, saturated by a lawsuit due to slippages during a concert of the group in Miami, but also exhausted by the rhythm of the musical environment, he will leave to rest in France or his excesses would have been right about him, according to the official version. But rumors are rife, especially as no autopsy has been performed on the body, with some versions presuming the use of heroin that led to his death.

The legend of the club of 27 becomes reality:

Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain

From the death of Jim Morrisson, the myth of the 27 begins to spread. But it will take 13 long years to revive the strange legend of this famous club, with the death of the famous Kurt Cobain, then leader of the rock group Nirvana.

On April 8, 1994 the body of Kurt Cobain was discovered with a letter and a rifle at his side. The autopsy report mentions a suicide with a bullet in the head. He was also 27 years old and the cause of his death was widely disputed. Besides the official version, the murder hypothesis is also put forward.

Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse

Time flies and the Club of 27 is no longer talked about. For the collective unconscious, would the legend be broken? The myth almost becomes an ancient story until July 23, 2011: Amy Winehouse dies of alcohol abuse. Also a follower of illicit substances, she would have been 28 on September 14. Death visited her before.

Other artists left at the age of 27, but their deaths have not been as publicized. However, is the curse of the 27 club finally lifted? Only the future can tell …

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded “ghost” in an empty cemetery

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded "ghost" in an empty cemetery 87

A Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved around the cemetery. Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

In the United States, a Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved through a cemetery.

The corresponding video was posted by Twitter user Ovidiu Maciuc.

The recording shows how a silhouette of a man appears on the monitor of an electric car, moving around the cemetery. After that, the driver raises the camera and starts filming the graveyard through the windshield, but there are no people there.

After some time, the “ghost” went in the opposite direction from Tesla and disappeared from the on-board computer screen.

Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

For many though, if you take into account the comments, the video seemed rather creepy. Some even tried to guess what the navigation system actually showed.

Some users thought the system could recognize ghosts. Others refuted this version and said that the reason for all this is an insufficiently accurate sensor, which was used for the equipment of the Tesla car.

Earlier it became known that Tesla electric cars in the near future may receive a new function with which they can talk with pedestrians. For this, American cars will be equipped with special external speakers. 

In addition, Tesla cars in the future will receive the option to change the horn and sound of movement at low speeds to warn pedestrians. According to Elon Musk, among the sounds of movement there will be the sound of the clatter of a horse’s hooves, and as a whistle – the bleating of a goat.

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel 88

About two weeks ago, Tel Aviv residents noticed that the concrete surface outside their homes was heating up and steam was coming out of the ground. Tests showed that steam that reached 60 ° C (140 ° F) was water based.

The witness explains: “I was afraid that there was a power line in the area and asked a worker to dig out the ground with a shovel. Steam suddenly came out. I imagined it was probably a geyser. It seemed to me that this was a geological incident – also because there were no problems with electricity in the building. “

Although the experts did not find any hazardous substances or any risk to the stability of buildings at the site, residents as well as kindergartens in the area were evacuated.

Officials described the heat source as “trapped energy” of unknown origin.

Work continues, steam is still rising and the ground is still hot. It is currently unclear what is causing the warming. Note the hole dug in the area. The area is still blocked.

Mysterious origins

City officials said they will “continue to monitor the temperature of the earth, which is expected to cool down for a long time, and will continue to investigate the causes of the unusual event.”

Israel Electric Corporation has not found a connection between heat and power in the area.

The Israel Geological Survey confirmed the rise in temperature after testing ground and water temperature levels, but said it has not yet found an explanation.

Despite their best efforts, municipal officials, the fire department, Israel Electric Corporation and the Ministry of the Environment have yet to find a source of heat.

Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv municipality has informed dozens of evacuees that they can return to their homes. However, residents are not going to return until they receive a detailed account of the source of the mysterious event.

“They evacuated us because they were concerned about our safety, and now they are urging us to return without any convincing explanation. How can you be sure that there is no more danger? “

The night sky in southern Taiwan shows a weird red moon alarming netizens: 2021 disaster year omen?

The night sky in southern Taiwan shows a weird red moon alarming netizens: 2021 disaster year omen? 89

Some people in Chiayi, Taiwan took pictures of a large dark red moon hanging in the night sky on the first night of 2021 and uploaded them to Facebook. There are also people in Tainan who have photographed the rare “red moon”. The weird scene has aroused heated discussions among netizens. Some people worry that an earthquake may occur, while others suspect that this is a precursor to the year of disaster in 2021?

Yesterday, on January 1 at about 8:00 in the evening, Chiayi residents shared a photo of “2021’s first red moon” on Facebook. As you can see in the photo, the weather was quite good at that time. There was a clear big round moon in the night sky, but it was a dark red moon, which was very different from the usual moon.

Later, people in Kaohsiung and Tainan also posted photos of the red moon they had taken.

The weird and rare “big red moon” immediately attracted the attention of netizens. Some people think that such a sight is caused by air pollution, and some people think that the red moon is “extremely beautiful”, but many people worry about whether it is a harbinger before the disaster ? 

“Hope is not a harbinger of disaster~”, “A harbinger of disaster in 2021???”, “It looked uneasy”, “After seeing the red moon, I hope everyone will be safe”.

Some netizens worry that this is a pre- earthquake omen.

“Remember the red moon before the 921 earthquake (omen)”, “earthquake precursors”, “I feel that there will be an earthquake again recently”, and “It seems that 2021 will be another year of bloody disaster.”

The British clairvoyant Craig Hamilton-Parker published his prediction for 2021 on YouTube in December last year, stating that, as far as the world is concerned, 2021 will be a year full of social unrest, armed conflict and political changes. There will be difficult times right now until 2025.

He also predicted that the biggest worry is climate and earthquakes. A tsunami will occur near Japan. Large earthquakes will occur in the Himalayas, Iran and the Americas. There will also be problems such as floods, dams bursting, and huge icebergs obstructing shipping. Until 2025, the severity of environmental problems will gradually increase.
