  1. 1. He died at 27 but is he in the club?

One interesting thing about this "27 club" is the volume of great music produced by each member varies so widely. 

Brian Jones helped the Stones put out 9 studio albums before he died.  

Jim Morrison released 7 albums (if you count 'American Prayer')

Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, the original frontman of the The Grateful Dead, crafted the band's first 5 studio albums.  

The original himself, Robert Johnson, was from an era where full length LPs were very rare.  We know of 42 total tracks recorded, about 4-5 albums worth.  

Jimi Hendrix released 4 studio albums (I count "The Cry of Love" because it was basically done when he died, half the tracks just needed final mixing).  

Janis Joplin released 4 studio albums (with various "backing" bands)

Kurt Cobain put out 3 with Nirvana

Amy Winehouse with 2 

While all of their brilliant music lives on, only two of them still have their songs played today by their original bandmates (or some of their former bandmates), Pigpen & Brian Jones.  Although there isn't a recorded song today that doesn't have Robert Johnson's fingerprints all over it.
