John Belushi’s widow, Judy, has died at 73, so I dug into my audio archives to find a conversation I had with her on December 9, 2005. At the time, she was promoting a biography of John she wrote with Tanner Colby. Judy told me stories about “Animal House,” “Saturday Night Live,” the origin of the Blues Brothers, and John’s less successful projects, like “1941” and “Continental Divide.” We also discussed his drug abuse, the speedballs that killed him, and the impact his death had on his friends.
