There is no curse of 27. It can be explained very easily through the rules of probability related to musician/entertainer drug use and ages at which these abusers had used up their ability to withstand that chronic abuse. Almost all of these people listed were either abusers or alcoholics, some admittedly both. There is only so much overuse the human body can take between the ages of 18 and 30. The suicide factor also comes into play when these stars realize their invulnerability has passed and they are hopelessly addicted and scarred with mental frailty. I would guess that ages 25 to 30 would have a very high rate of abuse and suicidal deaths in the general population.
