They noticed that Robert Johnson (a delta blues musician), Brian Jones (lead guitarist of the Rolling Stones), Janis Joplin (rock singer), Jimi Hendrix (one of the most influential guitarists of all time), Jim Morrison (singer and lyricist from the Doors) and Kurt Cobain (singer and lyricist from Nirvana) all had something in common - they all died at the early age of 27. With this new found realisation, they wanted to interpret these great musicians lives into t-shirts and thus Heaven 27 was born! "They climbed up that stair and made a hell of a band up there." I really like them. My favourite design is the Robert Johnson one.

The themed They all went to Heaven at the age of 27 t-shirts are the brain child of Whipping Floyd.
