Born to be wild…and crazy! John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd getting ready to go for a ride.
These two were born to be wild. Pictured here are Blues Brothers John Belushi and Dan Ackroyd getting ready to go for a ride. As it turns out, these two even brought their wild streak to work. According to Aykroyd, when filming The Blues Brothers in 1980, they had cocain included in the film budget for night shoots. He later admitted, “Everyone did it, including me.Never to excess, and not ever to where I wanted to buy it or have it. [But] John, he just loved what it did. It sort of brought him alive at night — that superpower feeling where you start to talk and converse and figure you can solve all the world’s problems.”
