Although the TCB Band seem to manage quite well in spite of their singer passing away in 1977.

the blues brothers lost john belushi. and yes, they were a real band that produced some pretty hot selling records...most notably briefcase full of blues. dan aykroyd has since had several others taking john's place (john goodman, jim belushi, etc...)...but it's never been the same. john was definitely the lead. i think they are in fact the 3rd top selling blues revue of all time after james brown and tina turner.

thankfully the band is still all there (though duck dunn has had bouts of poor health in recent years). so not quite half is gone. though about a dozen people who appeared in the movie have died (john belushi, john candy, john lee hooker, cab calloway, aretha's sister, the penguin actress, etc...)
