It’s been a longstanding superstition and/or belief that white BIC lighters are cursed! Where did it all begin? Well, many believe it has much to do with the “gone at 27 club” those artist that left the planet at the age of 27 (Hendrix, Joplin, Morrison, Cobain, etc) It’s often reported that ALL of the aforementioned dead rock stars had white BIC lighters on their person when death came calling. This has never been proven however. I think Hendrix was dead before they had white BIC lighters…oops! Do you have one? Would you buy one?
