There are many anniversaries in the classic rock world, but July 3rd is definitely one of the most somber.

This day marks the passing to two classic rock giants:  Brian Jones in 1969 and Jim Morrison in 1971.  Both men are members of the infamous “27 Club.”

Instead of mourning, we’d much rather celebrate their incredible contributions to rock.  Enjoy the playlist below!
