I was invited to Toronto a couple of years ago by my Eco-hero and good friend Dr. David Suzuki to attend a 20th anniversary party for the Roots Company. It promised to be an exciting one with many celebrity guests expected to show.
One thing I′ll never forget is when Dan Aykroyd came in and made his way through the crowd. Every eye in the room turned on him and all the news cameras swung as if to light his path... then he disappeared.
About twenty minutes later one of the great Toronto blues bands, Big Sugar, was doing their stuff when all of a sudden "poof!"... Elwood was on stage. While watching Elwood sway and command the entire group on stage with
a glance here, a nod there, you could see exactly why the Blues Brothers were such an electrifying act! The undeniable confidence that Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi had in the movie was very obvious and absolutely intact.
For a few fleeing moments that evening the Blues Brothers were back... although Jake seemed to always be out of view on the opposite side of the stage from me, he was there.
In those few exciting moments I was not only bitten by the blues bug but the concept of "Pure Blues" was driven into my subconscious as a project I was meant to do.
A very special "Private Edition Pure Blues" series is
available. Each includes an incredible frame, a pair of real Blues Brothers′ sunglasses given to Ron by Elwood, and a unique Blues Mobile remarque offered only in this package!
If you really want something unique, Suchiu is allowing only 150 hand-painted remarques to be sold for "PURE BLUES"
The remarque is a small original hand-sketched and colorized painting of Elwood′s glasses and Louisiana saxophone. It is placed at the bottom right hand side of your print by the artist. If you are an avid Blues Brothers collector... it doesn′t get any better than this!
