It has to be Dan Aykroyd. He was one of the earliest investors in the Hard Rock Cafe restaurant chain.

He also has a fascination with motocycle gangs and policemen, which seems like a strange mix.

I bet that is him because I know he has a brother named Peter that was in Nothing But Trouble with him. I wouldn't have guessed it though, thanks Steve and TKO!!

Another good one London.

I looked it up (just now, Devo [Wink] ) and it is indeed Dan Akroyd. Yay!
As a blues fanatic, I knew he had something to do with The House of Blues and hangs out with ppl like BB King and Buddy Guy. But that was basically all I knew about him from the clues that were given.
For a minute David Bowie also crossed my mind, because of the two different eye colors.

Maybe Saint_in_London, you can make things a bit more difficult by giving us only one clue at the time.. preferably something we can't immediately look up. This maybe convinces the non believers and also allows more ppl to take their chance with this game. Just an idea..
Keep 'em coming. [Cool]

Hey, the clues where there and you 80s people followed them all the way to big Dan….the interested in the supernatural, plays harmonica, House of Blues chain.

Here are some the bits I had to leave out if you are intresed, I was sure the intrest in police would have given it away if I had put that up

A police buff, he rides an Ontario Provincial Police motorcycle, collects police badges, sometimes rides shotgun with detectives in squad cars, and owns in partnership with several Toronto police officers.
Was once engaged to Carrie Fisher

After working together on three films, Jamie Lee Curtis called him the best "screen kisser" who ever had a scene with her.
Has a "Blues Brothers" type band with John Belushi's brother, actor Jim Belushi.
He has such a fascination with both police officers and criminals, one of the writers from the original Saturday Night Live said his ultimate fantasy was to commit a crime, then arrest himself for it.

Ok. TKO, I'll give that ago, I'm not always able to visit everyday though so your have to bare with me as it could drag on a bit. As for cheating....well i guess people can look just about anything up and get a link to it on the net, we can all do it, just takes the fun out of it though, its not a competion. Hopefully everyone is playing honestly, I'm not suprised they are all being picked off quite quickly. I know the movie/actor knowledge on this site is very high...

That is ok Saint. The answer doesn’t have to be found right away.

Hey I didn't even realize that about Dan Akyroyd and the birth defect thing. I think there are some people around here who have the same thing and I have even seen some people where it effects there hands as well.
