    Hello, Ryan! I had never heard of the "27 Club" ... at 27 I was giving birth to our first son and, I suppose, "grown up" life for me was just beginning. It's very sad to think of all those talented artists whose promise was wiped out at such an early age ... even if their demise was self-induced. I found Malcolm Hale on the Wikipedia list which you helpfully provided. He was the lead guitarist of "Spanky And Our Gang" and his death at the age of 27 was actually accidental (carbon monoxide poisoning). This song comes from the Band's eponymously named 1967 album.

    Day two has been nothing short of a triumph. There is a very pleasing amount of Robert Johnson coming through, and some cracking originals, among other delights.

    Most of the time, when we're writing a song, we're telling a story. Stories are often made up. All that stuff in my last song about sitting on my bed in shock, and how I'll always remember where I was (I vaguely do), and how Kurt was my hero and I was devastated... all played up, exagerrated in order to increase the emotional impact of the song. Was I hurt by his death? Yes, I was a big fan, having followed Nirvana back in the late 80's. This 6 minute song tells the true story of what I knew of the man, plus asks some questions about the other Clubbers.

    For Season 412 of the Ukulele, we're playing music by members of the so-called "27 Club". One of the more obscure members of the club is Dennes Boon, better known as D. Boon, of the Minutemen, one of the great punk guitarists (https://www.rollingstone.com/music/m...nutemen-188064/), who died in 1985 when the band's van crashed while on tour. Here's "Fascist" from their first EP, played on concert ukulele, with overdubs of Ubass (with apologies to Mike Watt) and singing.
