Dan Aykroyd was wrong

One of my all-time favorite albums is The Blues Brothers’ Briefcase Full Of Blues. Today I listened to it again and noticed a prediction Dan Aykroyd made on the opening track:

By the year 2006, the music known today as “the blues” will exist only in the classical records section of your local public library…

Good thing he was wrong about that! I know, I know; it was written for laughs. Still, I’m happy it didn’t come to pass.
