The Curse Of Robert Johnson - in the 1930s in the hotbed of Delta blues, Robert Johnson was a mediocre guitarist at best and always wanted to be better. He disappeared for awhile and, when he came back, was a phenomenal writer and guitarist which made a lot of folks suspicious that Johnson made a deal with the devil at "The Crossroads". His popularity rose, both on stage and with the ladies, and in 1938 at the age of 27, he was thought to be poisoned to death by a jealous husband. The Curse of Robert Johnson, and the age of 27, became a peculiar coincidence in the music world. Here are some of the more famous people who died at the age of 27...curse or coincidence? You decide.
