April 22, 1978

On this day in 1978,  John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd made their The Blues Brothers debut on Saturday Night Live, later becoming the first characters from the show to get their own movie.

They were not so much a comedy act as a musical one, both Belushi and Aykroyd loved to play the blues.

For their debut on the show, they played a cover of  Sam & Dave’s ‘Soul Man’, from whom they got their idea for their characters.
