The curse of the club of 27

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 …

The Ten Biggest Mistakes of Medicine

© CC BY-SA 2.0, Otis Historical Archives National Museum of Health and Medicine

Heroin, mercury, blood release, and surgical procedures that turn patients into apathetic zombies. Swedish Illustrerad Vetenskap offers a peek into the terrible archive of medicine. Here are ten of the biggest mistakes doctors made from antiquity to the 20th century – and only one of them brought not suffering, but pleasure.

Take a look at the terrible archive of medicine and get acquainted with the ten most terrible medical errors in history.

10. Orgasm against female hysteria – used until 1980

At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, some women suffered from “hysteria”. Doctors treated this ailment with the help of a massage apparatus, which brought them to orgasm.

However, the results were very unstable, and the treatment had to be repeated at intervals of several weeks.

9. Children became drug addicts – used until 1930

“Mrs Winslow’s Soothing Syrup” is the name given to the remedy that many parents gave their restless children in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The medicine contained morphine, which caused addiction in children, and even killed many.

8. Homosexuals were treated with electroshock – until 1992

For most of the 20th century, science has stated that homosexuality is a disease that can be cured.

Therefore, doctors subjected homosexuals to a variety of treatments from “homosexuals” and hypnosis to psychotherapy and electroshock.

7. Useful cigarettes – used until 1926

The tobacco plant was brought to Europe from America, where doctors began to praise nicotine for its medicinal properties.

Today, tobacco is considered the main cause of lung cancer.

6. Dependence on “medicinal” heroin – until 1910

In 1898, the German pharmaceutical company Bayer began selling heroin as a cough and tuberculosis drug.

The chemists of the company were sure that the new drug was not addictive.

5. Drilling holes in the skull – used to this day

From the Stone Age to the middle of the Middle Ages, ancient surgeons tried to treat such ailments as migraines by removing part of the cranial bone or making holes in the skull.

The idea was that through the hole evil spirits come out of the head. Such operations were incredibly painful, and the risk of developing the infection was very high, however, excavations indicate that surprisingly many patients survived.

In principle, trepanation is still used today, for example, in the treatment of the effects of cerebral hemorrhages.

4. Mercury as a medicine – used until the 20th century

For several thousand years, doctors have been convinced that virtually everything can be cured with mercury. The Chinese emperor Ying Zheng (259 – 210 century BC), for example, took liquid metal all his life, despite the fact that his tongue was swollen and his gums inflamed.

Today, doctors know that mercury disrupts the brain, increases blood pressure, harms digestion, causes breathing problems, and contributes to the development of depression and anxiety.

3. They bleed to death – until the 20th century

Doctors once believed that illnesses arise from an imbalance in the body’s main body fluids: blood, mucus, yellow bile, and black bile. Bloodletting was supposed to save the patient from an excess of one of the fluids, but often it ended very poorly.

One of the victims was the first US president, George Washington, who in 1799 allowed doctors to try to cure his throat infection with bloodletting.

The main task of the blood is the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to the cells. Doctors released 3.75 liters of blood from Washington (80% of the total volume), after which he became very weak and died on the same day.

2. Poor hygiene killed millions – until the 18th century

Bathing is not only unnecessary – because of it, you can also get the plague. So doctors believed in the XVI century. “Baths and baths need to be banned, because after them the skin becomes soft and the pores open. Because of this, as we could see, plague-infected dirt enters the body and causes instant death, ”said, for example, the French court physician Ambroise Paré in 1568.

Therefore, for nearly 300 years, Europeans avoided soap and water, and only in the most extreme cases, they gently washed their skin if the contamination could not be removed with a dry towel.

However, aversion to water was a catastrophic mistake.

The plague was transmitted with flea bites, namely because of the uncleanliness of people, fleas spread. During the time that doctors needed to think of something better, their delusion took millions of lives.

1. Dissection of white matter: the patient became a zombie – was used until 1983

Such an eerie treatment has never received such magnificent recognition as in 1949, when Egas Moniz was awarded the Nobel Prize for the invention of “dissection of white matter” – lobotomy. Doctors of that time believed that a lobotomy cured the mentally ill, but in fact this procedure turned them into “vegetables”.

The Portuguese neurosurgeon Egash Monish in 1935 came to the conclusion that he could make patients with psychiatric illnesses calm and obedient, cutting the nerve connections in the frontal lobes.

According to his idea, the dissection of white matter allowed to separate the thinking part of the brain from the sensory. Doctors around the world have adopted the Monish method.

One of them improved the operational method so that the procedure took only six minutes. An instrument resembling an awl was driven into the frontal lobe through the cranial bone just above the eyeball, after which the doctor moved them up and down.

Then the same thing was repeated over the other eye. At least 50 thousand people underwent lobotomy.

After this, the emotional life of the majority became very limited, because it is the frontal lobes that are responsible for the person’s personality. Many, for example, began to act like little children or suffer from dementia, if not at all, turned into real zombies.

The return of the Hums. Scary trumpet sounds over Eastern Europe and Argentina

On April 3, 2020, very scary news came from the city of Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia: Usually, there are always a lot of questions with these “trumpet sounds”, since the videos are isolated incidents, but in this case the whole city heard it all.

And not only the city, and not only in Slovakia. Even the conspiracy theorists do not know exactly what causes these sounds, not to mention the adherents of the officials who will not say too much. Nevertheless, there are two equivalent versions of this phenomenon, unless we are talking about the trumpets of the Apocalypse:

a) Trumpet sounds are connected to some tectonic processes;
b) Trumpet sounds are made by giant alien ships.

We don’t know the mechanism of seismic tension, but we can assume that the African plate moved and began to put more pressure on the hypothetical Great Adria, an ancient lithosphere plate that floats in the mantle under Europe. If the hypothesis about the “Great Adria” is correct, then this plate extends all the way to Norway and is responsible for the Vrancea zone, as well as other mysterious seismic centers of the continent. And now earthquakes started at the base of the Great Adria, and the plate itself somewhere in the depths makes some kind of terrible sounds.

Europe is waiting for an eruption of a volcano, M9.0 or so, and based on their observed correlations of “trumpet sounds” and lithospheric incidents, adventures should be expected in the second half of April. You can also think that “trumpet sounds” are made by alien ships. This, of course, is a more calming version than mega-earthquakes, nevertheless, we also do not expect good news from the “Martians”.

Several Argentine cities report strange sounds from the sky

In recent weeks, several users and local media in Argentina have reported on trumpet sounds invading the night, some with an official explanation and others not. Neighbors of the Buenosairean locality of Olavarria for example, stated that they had heard it, while just a week ago, something similar was reported in the province’s capital, La Plata.

Finally, in the province of San Juan in the west of the country, users flocked online to report having heard the phenomenon and looking for an explanation.

In all cases, the buzzing occurred in the middle of the night early morning, and lasted for several minutes, 15 at least according to reports.

Among descriptions of the event, some compared it to “trumpets,” others to “airplane engine,” and even some were frightened that it was a bombardment. It should also be noted that, according to neighbors, the dogs were barking and were upset.

In the case of the city La Plata, it was the only place where the authorities gave an official explanation, alluding to the fact that it was an internal power outage at the YPF La Plata Industrial Complex, a situation that generated the “increase in noise and intensity of torches due to unit arrests”.
