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

Knievel had undergone a liver transplant in 1999 after nearly dying of hepatitis C, likely contracted through a blood transfusion after one of his bone-shattering spills."

I was just reading about Evil settling the fued with Kanye West the other day....wonder if he knew his time was limited? I always found him entertaining and still wish he would've made the snake river canyon jump. God Speed


Cop: Sir, have you been drinking? Driver: Why? Is there a fat girl in my backseat?

Wow, I still remember watching him jump and then going out in the front yard and setting up ramps to see how far we could jump...

All the neighborhood kids would hang out at our place because we had the biggest ramp around...

a lot of us got hurt, but that was in the days before everyone was worried about being sued...crazy to think about it now...

RIP Evil...

another American icon gone...wow

The only saving grace of the 70s'...

I just recently seen a DVD on 40 years of ABCs Wide World of Sports and they had a whole section on Evel. Brought back a lot of fond memories, along with some cringing....

Very sad news...RIP Evel
