A New Take on the “27 Club”

We’ve all heard about the “27 Club,” that group of rock stars and famous people who died at the same tragic age. Reader Dennis has gone down a rabbit hole on this one.

You’ve spoken often of the 27 Club. Scratch your head thinking about this one:

  • 27 x 2.72727 = 73.63629
  • Joe B. Mauldin – died: February 7, 2015: age of 74.
  • Percy Sledge – died: April 14, 2015 – age of 74
  • Billy Joe Royal – died: October 6, 2015 – age: 73.
  • Cory Wells – died: October 10, 2015 – age: 74.
  • Paul Kantner – died: January 28, 2016 – age: 74.
  • Signe Toly Anderson – died: January 28, 2016 – age: 74.
  • Maurice White – died: February 4, 2016 – age: 74.
  • Dan Hicks – died: February 6, 2016 – age: 74.
