A Look Back – At The 27 Club Anthology

27-club_page_001In October of 2015 Red Stylo Media released a rock anthology like no other. The 27 Club Anthology brought 54 creators together to bring you 27 stories inspired by the music of some of the shooting stars of Rock N Roll.

“Stars burn hot, bright and then go out forever, but their light shines on for ages after. Members of the “27 Club” reached musical stardom early in life and died too young– specifically, the tender age of 27.”

Creators took songs by Amy Winehouse, Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Jim Morrison (The Doors), Janis Joplin, Brian Jones (The Rolling Stones), Alexander Levy (composer), Robert Johnson, Rudy Lewis (The Drifters), Dave Alexander (The Stooges), Richey Edwards (Manic Street Preachers), Kristen Pfaff (Hole), Jean-Michel Basquiat, Jeremy Michael Ward (Mars Volta), Helmut Kollen (Triumvirat), Mia Zapata (The Gits), Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson (Canned Heat), and others and brought original , thought provoking, fun, freaky, and down right amazing tales.

This was the first project I, or Dan Charles I guess, had a story in. SHE WAITS FOR ME is the story of Jim Morrison and the vampire who stalked him. They shared a connection from Jim’s youth all the way to that fateful night in Paris where she finally found him, alone in his hotel but more prepared then she expected. Was it love? Fear? Hatred? Why would a creature of such immense power spend years trying to kill a music legend?

Of course mine wasn’t the only story of course, there were contributions by some truly amazing creators. Jennie Wood, Jeremy Whitely, Enrica Jang, Alex Cormack, Erica Schultz, Chuck Harrison, Ashley Leckwold, Mario Candelaria, Jarrod Perez, and many more. Check out all the contributors over at the Red Stylo page.
