The 27 Club

Bono's daughter Eve Hewson has a part in The 27 Club, an American movie premiered at the Tribeca Festival in New york on 26th April 2008.

A rock star's best friend dies at the age of 27. He hires a grocery store clerk to drive him across America to the funeral. The 27 Club is a beautiful road movie about friendship and healing. Eve plays Stella, an Irish hitch-hiker who they pick up on their journey.

Eve was accompanied to the premiere by her mother and sister Jordan. I'm sure her dad was very proud of her, but really there was no way he could have been there as the spotlight would have fallen on him and not Eve. The price of fame! But I'm pretty sure there will have been a private party somewhere for family and friends where father and daughter could celebrate together.

Above, Eve with her mother Ali at the Tribeca Festival. What a pretty young lady she is,very like Ali, but with her father's eyes and mouth. I wonder if this will be the start of an career in acting for Eve?


  1. I was going to Blog about this, LOL, but you did it so well, I feel there is no need! :) Just worth mentioning that the "27 Club" is a popular culture term for a group of infulential musicians who all died at age 27, often in mysterious circumstances.

    They include: Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Curt Cobain.

    All very weird when you think about it.... there are several more, lesser know ones (to me at least) too.

  2. Yes I knew what the 27 Club was, and it's a pitifully young age to die, but not all together surprising considering their lifestyles
