FOREVER 27 CLUB
Though reactions to Amy Winehouse's demise have ranged from sympathetic to brutal "she had it coming" sentiments, one thing is certain --she is not the first, and likely not the last musician to suffer such a fate. It's known as the 'Forever 27' club, it includes Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix, who all died tragically and unnaturally.
Marco Perego created a sculpture two years ago called, 'The Only Good Rock Star Is a Dead Rock Star.' The piece shows Amy Winehouse shot in the head by William Boroughs. Winehouse replaces Joan Vollmer, Boroughs' wife who was shot during a game of William Tell in 1951. The sculpture was part of 'The Truth Is All of These Things. The Truth Is None of These Things. The Truth Is Some of These Things,' at Half Gallery.
