** She has been waiting for so long to get revenge on Jake that she would follow them to hell and back. Or maybe it's just female intuition.

* After John Lee Hooker gives his street performance he gets into a fight with Pinetop Perkins, his piano player. Can anybody explain the significance of this? Because it feels like a ShoutOut to a real life event or dispute rather than something for the film, but I'm not familiar enough with J.L. Hooker's work enough to get it.

Added DiffLines:

** The full performance of Boom Boom on the extended version of the film reveals that the person John Lee Hooker is arguing with is actually the piano player in his own band, who is played by famous blues pianist Pinetop Perkins. This only makes the argument scene more strange. But it also probably indicates that this 'argument' is a joke and part of the band's performance.

*** Jake signs the receipt for his belongings with an X. It is dubious that any driving license could be ever given to a barely literate person.

*** So here we were watching Blues Brothers for the first time, and I, daughter of two musicians who were also part of a small local band, am the one laughing my head off at the 'microphone' line because I actually knew that a good quality microphone (like the little thing you hold in your hand when you wing) can easily cost more than a used motor vehicle...

**** Wait, wasn't the loudspeaker "the microphone" for which Elwood traded the previous "Bluesmobile?"

** It's possible that he might have been trying to con them into paying a fine due to their lack of "permits" in order for the Blue Brothers to pay off their bar tab. When the band leader reacted hostilely, Jake probably saw that that plan wouldn't work and decided to just make a break for it instead.

*** Certainly implied when Jake and Elwood arrive at the soul food restaurant to pick up Matt "Guitar" Murphy and Blue Lou, and end up comparing notes with Matt about the quality of the food in various local prisons.
