Neil Young once sang, ‘It's better to burn out than fade away.’ Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all exited this mortal coil at an early age, attaining mythical cultural and immortal status that only death can provide. Their demise was originally viewed as occupational tragedies, victims to the excesses of drug and alcohol that sadly often are a part of the rock and roll lifestyle. Kurt Cobain’s suicide in 1994, however, highlighted a strange commonality that these icons shared: they all had been just 27 years old when they passed away.
