Education - The 27 Club - dedicated to Mr Mike Skinner of Danbury

I have constructed this mini shrine to some of music's most treasured icons and troubadors. I thought that it might be interesting to investigate an eerie phenomenon that we're all pretty up with, namely that relating to the
"27 Club" or "Cult of 27"
  • Wacky theory, courtesy of the Astrological Lodge of London:

Clearly stated, this theory basically suggests that each one of these modern icons died while at the same stage/phase of their Uranus and Neptine cycles, "their lives apparently measured out by sixty degrees of Neptune" whatever this means.

Kurt Cobain Ur +3º, Ne -1º (Feb. 20, 1967 - April 5, 1994)
Jimi Hendrix UR +6º, NE -3º (Nov 27, 1942 - Sept. 18, 1970)
Brian Jones UR + 4º, NE - 3º (Feb 28, 1942 - July 3, 1969)
Janis Joplin UR +8º, NE -3º (Jan 19, 1943 - Oct. 4, 1970)
Jim Morrison UR +3º, NE -3º (Dec 8, 1943 - July 3, 1970)

These musicians have been labelled as "The Children of Dionysus", all brilliant spirits whose lives have burn out like meteors in the sky (sic) by the time of their Uranus-trine return: in other words, Neptune has twice the orbit period of Uranus, therefore making its sextile-return (one sixth of its orbit) near to the time when Uranus makes its trine return - about the age of 27 (for example, one would reach the Neptune opposition at 84 years, as Uranus makes its full-cycle return)


Their youthful lives did not get as far as their first Saturn return. Thus, the primary defining feature of the 'Club of 27', in terms of lifespan, has been a Uranus-Neptune interaction - with the latter planet conferring the more exact period

  1. I'd be interested to hear what you think of this (pretty gash) theory
  2. I think anything to do with astrology or tarot or ghosts or marxism is complete unscientific hogswash
  3. Is it too easy just to say that these people just 'lived hard, died young', is there something more to it (i.e alternate explanation)? Matt has a very interesting theory here, but perhaps it should be heard in speech rather than infiltrated in the narrow scope of this paltry website. meaning is use etc snore snore
  4. Will mike join this club?
  5. But wait, let's get back to the fact that each member of this esteemed club had prominent Uranus-connections!
  • A lover of reptiles to his family and friends long before he became known as the Lizard King to his fans, Morrison, the troublesome practical joker with an exceptionally high IQ had the rebellious and macho Mars-Uranus conjunction.
  • Cobain, brought up in a society where perfect looks sell mediocre music, was the greasy-haired founding member of the "Grunge" music and lifestyle, was born during the Uranus/Pluto conjunction of the mid 1960‘s.

etc, there are plenty more arguments for why the "27 club" connected to the planets and shit, but maybe we can discuss those over a drink in lovely chelmsford next week...

Addiction killed these folks. They lost touch with Jupiter and became addicted to Neptune.

Terracotta Pie!
