In my research in the music history, I have came across some interesting facts.
Since I always have been interested in numbers I discovered the following:

Both Jimi Hendrix, Robert Johnson, Brian Jones and Jim Morrison as well as the great Swedish
piano player Jan Johansson died at an age of 27. Why ???

The same goes for SRV and Charlie Parker, though I haven't done any research of musicians who died
too early at the age of 35.

Isn't it spooky ? Anyone else has others ???

Let us not forget to wear tin foil hats every time we give a thought on these kinds of things. wink.gif

I believe that it's just coincidence. The world is filled with great musicians and geniuses, and there are even more not so famous musicians. Everyone dies, and a sad fact is that, especially in the sixties, seventies and eighties, drugs and such things have been a solid part of rock'n roll life. So as life expectancy goes down, the possibility to die at the same age increases.

If asked how many great musicians have died at the age of 27, I answer: "How many great musicians haven't?"

But don't forget the tin foil hats! biggrin.gif

Stevie died 36 days before his 36 birthday, he had a nightmare that night before the fatal day... he was watching his own funeral.

Hmmm, here we have a co-efficient 9 actually. If You divide the others one's with three You get nine, if You divide Stevies with 4 You also got 9. Maybe it has something to do with 9 ??? So then must we try to look-up who died when 45, 54, 63,72.... and not to forget 18....

I watched the movie 23 once. I thought it was kind of lame, but I was fascinated by the way the characters were absorbed into the "mystery" at hand. So I made a little test of my own:

There were 23 buckets of flowers in my front yard. There were 46 (23+23) leaves in a tree branch. There were total of 23 elderly people I saw during my trip to shop. And so on.

There were also 18 children I saw. The road's pavement was dividable by 18. There were 3 x 6 (=18) windows in nearby apartment complexes. If I recall, 18 houses like that have been built in this area.

It's possible to see patterns everywhere. The question is whether we see an actual pattern or make the pattern up ourselves.

I definitely do not want to spoil the fun you guys are having, I think these kinds of things are fun, too. smile.gif Just thought to bring up a different view to broaden the conversation.

In Sweden we use to say: "He didn't swear, He didn't smoke, He didn't drank, He didn't struggle with women, but the day he got 50 - he'd been ran over by a bus!!!"
Since I'm abusing both cigarettes and swears on occasion, I guess Im safe as well..... laugh.gif
