John Belushi (1/24/49 - 3/5/82) American comedian, actor, and musician. He is best known as one of the original cast members of the hit NBC sketch comedy show Saturday Night Live. He was the older brother of James "Jim" Belushi.
The original cast in 1975: Laraine Newman, John Belushi, Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, Garrett Morris and Chevy Chase. I remember sitting at Mr. Gatti's, with the show on the tv there and my friend said, "Oh, that's a new show, Saturday Night Live." That was in 1975 and here we are in 2012.
