Belushi’s 50-50 odds

One Friday in 1979, Keith Richards blew into town and invited John Belushi to join him at a party. The pair spent most of the night snorting cocaine. The next morning, Belushi staggered into NBC's studio at Rockefeller Center for a "Saturday Night Live" dress rehearsal. Producer Lorne Michaels was soon informed by a doctor that if Belushi performed as scheduled there was a 50-50 risk he would die. Michaels, who badly needed Belushi on camera, looked at the doctor and replied, "I can live with those odds."
