Alive and Well

Alive and well and living in Montmorillon


It is reported that John Belushi died in Hollywood on 5 March 1982 after overindulging in speedballs – nothing to do with his sexual proclivities, speedballs are a mixture of cocaine and heroin.  We were lucky enough, a couple of weeks ago, to hear Richard Earls singing the blues and playing his harmonica on the terrace of La Terrasse in Montmorillon.  Richard had a backing group of two guitarists one of whom, I am pleased to report, is obviously John Belushi himself.  Richard and John Belushi (using his nom de plume Thierry) have written a number of songs together and thesae can be sampled, read about and purchased at
