  1. Just heard the news - Evil Knievel dead at 69

    EVEL Knievel, the motorcycle daredevil whose jumps over buses, live sharks and Idaho's Snake River Canyon made him an international icon in the 1970s died yesterday aged 69.

    Knievel's death was confirmed by his grand-daughter, Krysten Knievel. He had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs.


    RIP Evil, may your legend live on... :cry:
  2. Carol, this news has already been posted, (not picking on you, it just has :)).
  3. Not really, Carol got in first :)
    But, since it's a General Discussion topic, I leave that one and lock this one.
