Live fast, die young, be wild and have fun.

I would love to talk a lil bit about the 'Club 27'. If you do not already know Club 27 is the group of famous people, who lived their lives on a way that is not usual, they were attracking attention to themselves, because they were not like all other people.

All those people were very famous, and all of them died at the age of 27. Some of them died from drugs, some of them died from heart acctac, some of them commited a suicide, one of them even died from drowning in the swimming pool, and for some people, we do not know why they died.

And, yes, many people think that in this Club we can put only rock start who died between 1969 and 1994, but that is not true, there are also some other people, who died much earlier, and also, in this club we can put many people, who were not popular all around the world.

First one on this list is Brasilian musician from 19th century. This man was not a rock star, because during the time, when he was living and making his music, rock music was not existing and he just could not be a rock star.

HJe was a pianist, composer and conductor. He was very popular, because he was making brazilian folk music. Actually, his songs were a fusion between classic music, that was still very popular during that period, and some traditional rythm, and some folk elements. And,t hat is the proof that this man was much different from all the people that were living and making music during that period. This man was very popular, and he could be even more popular, but he died. He was born in 1864. and he died in 1892. reason why he died is not familiar to us.

Nest oneon this list is American blues guitarist, singer and songwriter. We do notrknow many things about this man. He was a mystery even while he was alive. It seems that he liked ot make music, he loved singing, he loved to play the guitar, but he gig not like the fame. It seems that he was trying to avodi fame. That is why he was not attentinf the events, he was not making big meetings, and all other tihngs that famous musicians are doing.

His movie was a legend, and because of that many people are not even sure that he was real. There is a movie, based on a story of his life, and movie is called Crossroads, and it was relesed in 1986. I am not sure, but I think that you can find this movie on the Internet.

That is what makes him different from all other people. He is in this group because he also died at the age of 27. He was born in 1911. and he died in 1938.

He killed himself by using the poison, but there is not a information about that posion, we can not be sure which poison he used to kill himself.

Lewis Brian Hopkin Jones

Next person on this list is Brian Jones. He was the founder and original frontman of the rock band Rolling Stones. He was playing many instruments, and some of them are guitar, musical keyboard... but he was also playing some traditional instruments, and he was using that to make his music different and special. And, as all other people on this list, he was very special, and because of that he was very interesting to people who listened ot his music. Many people think that he is the main reason why Rolling Stones became popular. As the time was passing, group was more and more popular, and his 'friends' from the band wanted to take all the fame. That is one side of the story, other side says that he was doing drugs, and druigs were the reason why his role in the band was smaller and smaller.

He made the band, he gave them fame, and then he disappeared.

His career was going down, and os was his whole life. This genius died in 1969. You maybe think that he died from drugs, but that is not true. He drowned in the swimming pool in his house. Maybe he took some drugs before that, and maybe that is the reason why he was not able to get out of the pool.

He was born in 1942., and he died in 1969. At the age of 27.

Here in Serbia he was a symbol of one generation, his music was showing real problems. He was born in 1977. in Belgrade, and he was growing up during the 90s, and in Serbia those years were not the best period to grow up. Moskri was a symbol of generation that was growing up in that period. Symbol of people who decided not to be criminals, and people who had no money because of that.

He died from heroin, and in Serbia, herion is also called the 'drug for the poor people', because it is much cheaper that other drugs.

Živeli su po čuvenoj rečenici Džona Dereka „Živi brzo, umri mlad in budi lep leš“ iz filma „Knock on any door iz 1949. godine. Ta rečenica oslikavala je nemirni duh mladih u svetu poroka.

za mnoge od njih se ne bih slozio da su ziveli brzo vec da su pobesneli od slave i para sa cijom kolicinom nisu umeli da se izbore na pravi nacin, i smatram da je jako pogresno od takvih praviti heroje i uzore danasnjoj omladini

Oni ne treba da budu uzori, oni su poklekli pod teretom slave, odgovornosti, obaveza, prosto su bili preslabi. Svako od njih je bio izvanredan muzicar, ali izvleda da nisu bili spremni za ono stro je zivot imao spremljeno za njih. Svi ovi ljudi i dan danas imaju milione fanova, neki su i dan danas simboli slobode, neki su simboli bunta, razlicitosti itd...

Ima ih puno vise nego sto mislimo, i puno njih nije na spisku, jer prosto nisu popularni sirom sveta pa ne mogu tako lako da dodjem do podataka o njima. Prosto ne znam da su uopste postojali.

Nekako je sve to jako misteriozno. Svi su se bavili muzikom, svi su bili po necemu posebni, i svi su prerano zavrisili na tragican nacin. Jako mi je drago da ti se post dopao!

Vecina ovih ljudi je jako rano uslo u sve to. Bili us jako mladi i nisu znali kako da se nose sa svim tim. Pored slave i nedostatke privatnosti, to je i velika odgovornost, tewret slave je ogroman, nekako kao da citava javnost nesto ocekuje od poznatih, oni su neka vrsta uzora i zbog to su stalno pod budnim okom javnosti.
