Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison...The 27's Club, a new book scheduled for release later this year, documents the lives of these momentous figures in rock history (and apparently 30 others), and the enigmatic number that unites them all--that number, is 27.

This book is much more than a simple biography. Taken from the website: "The story unfolds over 292 full-color pages packed with illustrations, mind-blowing revelations, eerie coincidences, trivia, interviews, and a myth greater than them all. It’s a story about fame & loneliness, success & defeat, struggle & perseverance, modesty & excess…and life & death."

Strangely reminiscent of the spellbinding The Number 23.
