Just got the disturbing news that one of my childhood heroes has passed on. As a child I witnessed this stunt devil jump over cars on his stunt cycle, and remember his media enriched attempt at jumping the snake river in his super powered rocket cycle. I remember one of my favorite toys that showed up all the other kids on the block, was none other than the Evel knieval action figure with his most powerful stunt cycle. Let us take a little time out of this life to remember the daredevil in all of us. Your stunts live on buddy knieval. Robert Craig Knievel was born October 17, 1938, in Butte, Montana. When ever I pick up that guitar theres a little Evel in me wondering if I'll pull off that next stunt.
