It is rare in the world of music for a general consensus to form over who was the best at anything. Many would call The Beatles the greatest rock band, but it’s easy to find strongly opinionated dissenters. However, when it came to playing a guitar and laying the soundtrack for the psychedelic era, just about everyone agrees there was Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970) and then there was everyone else. Anyone arguing otherwise either never heard his music or saw him perform.

In fact, Jimi Hendrix is one of the few musicians known primarily for his sound and what he could do with a guitar than for his discography. A part of that is due to his untimely death and entry into the 27 Club, but it is also due to the fact that he was so revolutionary with the use of an electric guitar and so skilled at playing it that the effects have largely not been duplicated since. It was heavy, loud, and completely raw, and yet he was a pioneer in genres as varied as blues and heavy metal. As Pete Townshend famously put it, “With Jimi, I didn't have any envy. I never had any sense that I could ever come close.”

The life and career of Janis Joplin marks such a stark departure from the blues, rock and soul traditions as American society has come to know them that her brief and tempestuous career defies artistic analysis, if only because there is so little precedent aside from the great African-American blues and jazz singers that influenced her. For a woman born in 1943 and coming into her professional prime in the 1960s, Joplin stood as a mesmerizing and baffling foil to the female tradition in non-classical music, which had previously been symbolized by pure, mellow voices singing thoughtful texts. The American music scene was entirely unprepared to witness the emergence of a white woman who could sing the blues with such authenticity, force, and depth of feeling.

Of course, for all the mention of Joplin’s career, there is nearly as much focus on her untimely death at the age of 27, particularly because she died just a few weeks after Jimi Hendrix’s death at the age of 27 and was followed in death by Jim Morrison at the age of 27 less than a year later. Those three all died as a result of alcohol and drug abuse, and they formed the starting point for the legendary “27 Club”, which memorializes rock stars who died at the age of 27. Morrison, the charismatic poet/musician of The Doors, helped to transform the subgenre of rock n’ roll as a stylistic flavor into the full-fledged institution of Rock Music, and he accomplished all of this by being extreme, in every sense of the word. His poetry was assaultive, blatant and graphic, a sign of the times, and his voice was mystical and haunting, lacking any sense of what was previously or typically considered vocal beauty. Whether intentional or not, Morrison also led the charge of excessive defiance toward anything hierarchical or rule-laden, and the acting out of his subconscious urges on public stages around the world amazed and shocked everyone who saw or heard about it.

Kurt Cobain later noted that he tried to model his most famous song after one The Pixies might have done, but “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and its accompanying music video ushered in rock’s “grunge” movement at the start of the 1990s, and the song, ironically named after a deodorant, captured the culture in its entirety. A reaction to the likes of the previous decade’s yuppies and acts like M.C. Hammer, grunge became a sound and culture for angst-ridden teens and the disaffected youth who were proud to be plain. Whether Cobain intended for it or not, grunge became the most popular music of the decade, and the look and sound both became trendy fads, even as he personally struggled with the lifestyle.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Another failure in facts by Charles River 29 mai 2014
Par Mike - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've read several of these books by Charles River and every one of them has had glaring errors. "The 27 Club" is no exception. Jimi Hendrix was not born Johnny Allan Hendrix. His birth name was James Marshall Hendrix, hence the nickname "Jimi."

I haven't finished this book yet, but I have also, as usual, found spelling and grammatical errors galore.
"they had three children, all of whom were older, and they all loved have a little boy around with whom they could read and played often." Was it a child that wrote this and had no editor?

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Selling Jimi In A 27 Club Cage 2 novembre 2014
Par Ralph Yates - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Charles Rivers Editors is just another of several recent authors who decided to display Jimi Hendrix from the exploitative cage of the 27 Club, only Editors had the nerve to put Jimi on the cover as a poster boy for the Club. By reducing Hendrix to a carnival attraction for this mysterious death club Editors has demeaned him and denied him his true history. This recent trend of 27 Club promotion is part of a neo-con attack on the 60's that converts these rock figures from cultural heroes to casualty statistics with the assumption that the reporters represent a status quo that is having the last say on its members. Smart people will see that this is all part of the establishment effort to discredit those persons that started when they were alive, and even more importantly had something to do with their deaths and subsequent membership in that club. The people who own the venue are the ones who control the spin. This recent shoving of Hendrix, Brian Jones and others into this grotesque human taxidermy museum of the 27 Club is like allowing their hunters and murderers to display them like political trophies for hack authors to sell as examples. Smart people will see this trend of these 60's heroes slowly being dumbed-down into fodder for this ghoulish museum and know the reason for it. A creepy conversion is taking place where these dynamic talents and icons will be known in a dumbed-down smart-phone generation's mind as 27 Club members instead of the real people they were. What the public won't know due to the efforts of authors like Editors is that this process of personal diminishment was something that was occurring when these people were alive and even had something to do with their deaths. The crime exploitative authors like Editors, Sounes, and others commit is that they sanitize the true history of these victims and their horrific fates under malevolent government forces in order to reduce them to moronic 27 Club membership that denies them their true story and its meaning. And Editors even uses the worst example of that victimization, Jimi Hendrix, as his cover shot for maximum effect. This is an offense that should, at the very least, not go unnoticed. The powers that be know how to manipulate the public. They know the public is more interested in a brainless parade of feel-good fun and won't give heed to the facts even when shown. Persons who aid that process should not be assisted or rewarded. This 27 Club is dark business. People should be smart and look deeper.

Be sure to go past the initial thumbnails at the start of this book....I thought that they were the whole book at first. The information provided there is nice, but one might just want to move to the actual story...which appears to be well researched altho a few editorial comments are distracting at times. Overall I learned some new things about the 27 Club and found others to be valid since I lived through these times. This is a good overview of the trio and worth a read.
