Can you recognize them all? One hint: they're all DEAD!
Another hint for the guy with the hat: he is from the original GratefulDead lineup.

:bulletred:Which one was your favorite?

Patricia, your piece is featured on my Jim Morrison Project website (currently under construction; will relaunch on Dec. 8, 2015) in the Photo Gallery. Your piece is properly cited and includes a link to this page. Please let me know if your have any objections with me using it.

pigpen - who should be standing next to janis as they were super good friends
and jimi and jim i would have placed  near or around janis
which is ironic and foreboding.

all of them are well loved, of course.
this is really cool.

sad for the one standing looking from the future to the past - even to KP who was gone by 1994.
this could become quite a "map of love and hysteria"

you always amaze me.
this is a very loving warning message
from the music which binds many
and the habits - and what caused them - which destroy

wel well well done.

Very awesome work. Incredible tribute. My one grip would be you left out Pete Ham from Badfinger.

The guy with the hat... It's Robert Johnson? or maybe Noel Rosa?

Anyway, awesome work as always, this is one of my favorite drawings by you. :)

I didn't even know there was a thing like the 27 club until now! Random chance and browsing is becoming surprisingly eye opening.
