Dead Famous Clothing
A true music fan loves a rock ‘n’ roll myth right? And ‘The 27 Club’ – the name given to the family of music greats who tragically (and often rather oddly) died at the spritely age of just 27 – is easily the most morbidly fascinating of them all.
First, Rolling Stone Brian Jones drowned in his swimming pool – or as the coroner called it “death by misadventure”. Then a month after guitar hero Jimi Hendrix took a lethal concoction of wine and sleeping pills, Janis Joplin overdosed on heroin. Next, Jim Morrison died of heart failure (disputably) without having an autopsy, before Kurt Cobain “joined that stupid club” – according to his mother – by committing suicide in his Lake Washington home. Finally, songstress Amy Winehouse became the most recent renowned tragedy, sadly losing her battle with alcohol last year.
Clearly, Dead Famous Clothing share this morbid fascination and have decided to pay tribute to some of the greatest musicians of all time (and one of rock ‘n’ roll’s strangest myths) with a series of excellent, Hetch-designed rags. Best of all, iconic photography of the above members appears to be viewed through X-ray spex and can be snapped up in tees and vests, for both men and women.
