Dan Aykroyd is truly a great Canadian innovator: he was part of the original cast of 'Saturday Night Live', a group that made censors sweat and helped turn SNL into a pop-culture machine.
Together with his friend, the late John Belushi, Dan created The Blues Brothers, a mythic duo that helped revive and popularize the sound of American blues.
What followed was a phenomenon, including the Ghostbusters films, both co-written by Dan. There are rumours about a third 'Ghostbusters' too. We'll get Dan's inside take on that.
In short, the guy who scored an Oscar nomination for 'Driving Miss Daisy', helped launch the House of Blues, and got into the liquor business has an otherworldy amount of talent.
Fitting for a guy who continues to draw inspiration from aliens, ghosts and the paranormal. And he's been honoured in another arena, as well: in February 2013, Dan was awarded a Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal, honouring contributions and achievements made by Canadians from all sectors of society.
