KISS founder Gene Simmons is writing a book about the “27 Club”, the list of rock stars and celebrities who died at the age of 27 – a list that includes Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Amy Winehouse and more.

Simmons says the book will explore the mystery of why this happens at age 27, but “it’s really about when you become rich and famous and everybody admires you, what is that thing that makes people destroy themselves?”

Simmons says he has never been drunk or high in his life and says “what’s happening with opioids is killing everybody… there’s nothing cool about that’
27: The Legend And Mythology Of The 27 Club will be released August 14.?
