27 claims another young musicianmain
The number 27 has acquired an ominous aura after the deaths of Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse at that age. Their deaths were believed to be substance-related.
Yesterday, Thomas Fekete, founder and guitarist of surf-rock band Surfer Blood, died at 27 of a rare cancer, bravely borne. A terrible loss.
