The curse of the J's

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by IAMERICCOCHRANE, Sep 12, 2003.


  1. Why is it that alot of musicians or actors with a J in there first name always die young? Think about it; Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jaco Pastorius, John Ritter, John Candy, etc etc...



    See if you can think of any other musicians or actors that dies young with a J in there name.

  16. It's probably a selection effect - you notice names that start with an unusual letter like J more, and they are fairly common.

    Also, add Jeff Buckley to the list.
