The New York Post did an interview with former ROH owner Cary Silkin about the legendary John Belushi.
Silkin revealed during the interview that he was a low-level drug dealer in the late 1970s and he was friends with Belushi.
According to the story, “Silkin slid two grams to the comedian, who overturned a glass ashtray full of cigarette butts, tapped out an oversized line of cocaine and hoovered it. He borrowed $200 from cast members before swearing Silkin to secrecy.” The story continued, “The dealer said he returned to Trax — only to see Belushi reappear an hour later, seeking two more grams.”
Silkin said he wasn’t shocked when Belushi died because of the way he handled cocaine. The story also touches on others who knew Belushi around that time including Marcia Resnick who was with him on his last night in New York City.
There is also a “Belushi” documentary premiering on Showtime tonight and Silkin recently launched Silkin’s Last Stop Penn Station podcast.
