Famous deaths: Which movie and music stars died at 27? SHOCK answers | Music | Entertainment

Jimi Hendrix

Jimi Hendrix was another hugely influential guitarist, and was born in Seattle, Washington, in November 1942.

He rose to fame from around 1966, when he had success in the UK and founded The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

The band say broke up on 1969, but by this time Hendrix had become a worldwide star.

He began to experiment with drugs and alcohol, at one point being charged with drug possession and forced to go to trial in December 1969.

A year later, on September 17, 1970, he was found unresponsive in his apartment in London, and was pronounced dead the following day at the hospital.

It was first announced he died of asphyxia from choking on his own vomit while high on drugs, however the verdict was declared open due to insufficient evidence.
