Out of the Blue

R.I.P.: Singer Amy Winehouse Dies at Age 27. Some just shrug, but I find this very sad, as she wasted a lot of talent. And as is widely noted, she is other addition to the unfortunate "27 Club" (thanks nin). Years ago iconoclastic baseball statistician Bill James did a study that showed that the age of 27 was the most likely point for a player to have a standout season compared with the rest of his career, and in a later study found that player's defensive skills began to decline at the age of 27, as well, suggesting this is some sort of peak age. I'm not sure that there's a connection there, but every time the spate of dead 27 year-old musicians comes up, this pops to mind.
