Profile Bio Text
John Adam Belushi (January 24, 1949 – March 5, 1982) was an American comedian, actor and musician, notable for his work on Saturday Night Live, National Lampoon`s Animal House and The Blues Brothers. He was the brother of Jim Belushi. Belushi was born in Chicago, Illinois, the son of Agnes Belushi, a cashier and first-generation Albanian American, and Adam Belushi (b. 1919), an Albanian immigrant and restaurant operator.
On March 5, 1982, Belushi was found dead in his room at Bungalow #3 of the Chateau Marmont on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. The cause of death was a speedball, a combined injection of cocaine and heroin. On the night of his death, he was visited separately by friends Robin Williams (at the height of his own drug exploits) and Robert De Niro, each of whom left the premises, leaving Belushi in the company of assorted others, including Cathy Smith. His death was investigated by forensic pathologist Dr. Ryan Norris among others, and while the findings were disputed, it was officially ruled a drug-related accident.
