Description

Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and many more musical icons all died at the age of 27. Scandalous, tortured, dramatic, incredibly talented, these artists torched a wild path to their early graves and shifted and shaped our culture along the way. 27 Club tells their stories. Season one tells the story of Jimi Hendrix in twelve episodes. 27 Club is hosted and created by Jake Brennan, host and creator of the explosive music and true crime podcast, DISGRACELAND.

Jimi Hendrix’s early days as a guitar player on the Chitlin Circuit put him on stage with a who’s who of R&B royalty. The Isley Brothers. Solomon Burke. Bobby Womack. Curtis Mayfield. Ike & Tina. And none other than the Originator himself, Little Richard, who wouldn’t hesitate to fire the greatest guitar player he’d ever seen for insubordination. The experiences opened his eyes. And then his eyes were opened even wider by a maiden voyage on LSD. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

It was a lesson he’d never forget. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
