New book - The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll

A new book explores the stories of some of the most legendary names in rock history; "Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain. Equally as notorious for their impact on music as they are for their untimely deaths, the foursome have become the involuntary faces of The 27sóor the group of musicians who met their demise at that very age. Yet, itís the lesser told stories of bluesman Robert Johnson, Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones, The Minutemenís D. Boon and over two-dozen other artists that elevate The 27s from coincidental to legendary.

The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll explores their lives and legacies in a 312-page custom illustrated narrative, available exclusively online beginning October 27 (followed by an official release in April 2009) for, appropriately, $27.00."
