Dan Aykroyd • May/June 2021

Dan Aykroyd is a man of many facets. A comic with a flair for the dramatic, he also is a walking compendium of knowledge. We spoke with the comedic actor about his many business ventures, the perfect meal and his long-time love of great cigars. Plus, we look at three great father-son teams for Father's Day, aficionados remember Rush Limbaugh, and much, much more. On newsstands now.
