The Go-Go’s with John Belushi

This is just one of those pics you can’t pass up sharing, The Go’Go’s and the late great John Belushi.

I figured this pic had been taken sometime between late 1981 and early 1982, being as The Go-Go’s first album came out in July of 1981, and John Belushi died of a drug overdose on March 5, 1982. So I did some peeking around and found that The Go-Go’s were indeed on Saturday Night Live on November 14, 1981. Sadly, I cannot find video.

An autographed version of this photo was up for auction a few years back. John Belushi had asked the Go-Go’s to sign a copy of this photo (as shown below) and the photo was later obtained from his estate and sold in the John Belushi Memorial Auction on June 9, 1990. In 2004 the photo was auctioned off again, with the winner getting a heck of a deal at $411.
