John Belushi is buried at Abel's Hill Cemetery on Martha's Vineyard. Although his body was dug up once and moved (because of people desecrating the grave), he is still buried at this location, at least according to something I read on the internet.

The headstone is engraved with a skull and crossbones and reads, "I may be gone, but Rock and Roll lives on."

chateau marmont

Built in 1927 by a prominent Los Angeles lawyer, the Chateau Marmont was constructed in a Gothic design to mimic a royal retreat in France's Loire Valley.

The series of bungalows have been a favorite spot for Hollywood celebrities for years.

On March 4, 1982, John Belushi had been partying at the secret club above the Roxy called On The Rox, and later at The Rainbow Room.

Belushi went back to the Chateau Marmont Bungalow #3 with Cathy Smith (former back-up singer for The Band and drug dealer) and Nelson Lyon (writer for SNL). Belushi kept asking Smith to shoot him up with heroin since he was afraid of needles.

That night, Robin Williams stopped by and did some lines with the group but was creeped out by Smith. Robert DeNiro also stopped by around 3 a.m. and left shortly after.

Belushi was found by his personal trainer, Bill Wallace, the next day dead from a heroin overdose. He was 33 years old.
