The 27s will shatter your preconceived notions that The 27 Club was little more than a few famous rock stars who just happened to find death at the age of 27.
The 27s is not a book reveling in hero worship or wild conspiracies. The 27s is an emotionally evocative story that will:
Change your perception of music history, of Rock & Roll, of the much-hyped about music business
Replace stale clichés associated with The 27 Club’s most famous (yes, we mean Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Kurt Cobain) with fresh stories
Get you closer to these amazing artists than you’ve ever been
Provide you with enough anecdotes and fun facts to keep a captive audience whenever you hang out with music fans
“Segalstad and Hunter take the reader on a journey through 4 decades of Rock N Roll history and mythos without sinking into sycophantic hero worship. Think Allred’s Red Rocket 7 meets Rock and Roll 101 with great graphic design and a little bit of numerology and geometry thrown in for good measure.”—Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools
