The inspiration for Dan Aykroyd and the late John Belushi's fabulous creation, The Blues Brothers — they recorded Downchild's "Shotgun Blues" and Walsh's "(I Got Everything I Need) Almost", the latter shortlisted as one of Canada's Essential Songs in a survey conducted by the Toronto Star in 2007 — Downchild is an institution in their homeland, and revered by blues fans around the world.
