Maybe its so dangerous for the drug users/alcoholics because they're so destructive at that particular age. The 27 Club is renowned because of its list of musicians who were drug addicts or depressives living on the edge, hopefully it teaches others not to follow the same fatal path.

When Amy Winehouse died, everyone acted surprised even though it was predictable years away. "Oh my, Amy Winehouse is dead, I'm so shocked!" that's how people reacted. And of course, in death they rise to saint hood. No one can talk about how overrated Amy Winehouse was before she died cause now all of a sudden she's a great singer. Same goes for Jim Morrison even though his vocal range was terrible before and after his drug abuse.
