The Jane Doze’s mash-up includes footage of and music by the club’s most revered members: Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Robert Johnson, The Doors’ Jim Morrison, Rolling Stones’ guitarist Brian Jones and Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain. The clip begins with painter and graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, who died in 1998 — like the musicians, he was 27.
“We wanted to create a mix that would not only honor Amy’s memory, but also those of all the iconic musicians who passed away at the age of 27,” the duo told us. “Though the musical styles of each artist in this mashup vary, we’ve fused them together creating a unique tribute to the talent and timelessness they shared.”
The sampled songs are as follows (in order of appearance):
Amy Winehouse, “Back To Black”
Rolling Stones, “Paint It Black”
The Doors, “Love Me Two Times”
Jimi Hendrix, “If 6 was 9″
Janis Joplin, “Summertime”
Robert Johnson, “Hellhound On My Trail”
Nirvana, “Smells Like Teen Spirit”
Hearing these artists’ music fill the same space just reconfirms that each one left us much, much too soon.
