|March 10, 1982. John Belushi is buried in Abel's Hill Cemetery. Dan Akyroyd (on left) and John's brother Jim (on right) served as pallbearers. |
On March 11, there was a memorial service held at the Cathedral of St. John Divine, in New York. Aykroyd played a tape of the "2000 pound bee," per a promise he made to Belushi earlier in the year. People were of course shocked at this sudden influx of noisy guitars, but eventually realized whom they were there to celebrate anyway, and remembered that offensiveness came natural to Belushi.
