Description

Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse and many more musical icons all died at the age of 27. Scandalous, tortured, dramatic, incredibly talented, these artists torched a wild path to their early graves and shifted and shaped our culture along the way. 27 Club tells their stories. Season one tells the story of Jimi Hendrix in twelve episodes. 27 Club is hosted and created by Jake Brennan, host and creator of the explosive music and true crime podcast, DISGRACELAND.

Secret Agent Manager, UFOs & a Lovechild

The secret life of Jimi’s tough-as-nails manager, Michael Jeffrey, becomes increasingly harder to keep secret. His skeletons are bursting from his closet, his hands are getting dirtier all the time, and the mob is breathing down his neck.

A Band of Gypsys and Bad Acid Trips
2168
Following the end of The Experience, Jimi forms a new power trio with Buddy Miles and Billy Cox. Fueled by blues and R&B, Band of Gypsys promises to be an exciting new chapter in Jimi’s growth as an artist.

Upstaging God, Playing with Fire & Breaking the Mold
2124
London proves to be the place where Jimi Hendrix will break on through. But his sudden rise in popularity doesn’t come without some shock to the public at large. Jimi goes against the grain.

British police stop him on the street to question his unique fashion choices. Jimi is a bona fide sensation. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

Hired and Fired by Little Richard and Jimi’s first trip on LSD
2120
Jimi Hendrix’s early days as a guitar player on the Chitlin Circuit put him on stage with a who’s who of R&B royalty. The Isley Brothers. Solomon Burke. Bobby Womack. Curtis Mayfield. Ike & Tina. And none other than the Originator himself, Little Richard, who wouldn’t hesitate to fire the greatest guitar player he’d ever seen for insubordination. The experiences opened his eyes. And then his eyes were opened even wider by a maiden voyage on LSD. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers

It was a lesson he’d never forget. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://news.iheart.com/podcast-advertisers
