Evel Knievel Could Not Escape Death...

http://www.cnn.com/2007/SHOWBIZ/TV/1...vel/index.html

The legendary daredevil passed away today at the age of 69. Knievel had been in failing health for years, suffering from diabetes and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable condition that scarred his lungs.

I saw a pic of him the day before yesterday posing with Kanye after the two settled the dispute over the music video snafu. Yes, Evel threw a gang sign in the pic.

What's wrong with lame? It was midnight and I was tired- give me a break!

He was in a lawsuit with Kayne because Kayne was spoofing Knievel's name or something. IDK

Re: Evel Knievel Could Not Escape Death...

Yes, that being the source of the problem between Evel and Kanye and his record label, since he identifies the Knievel persona as "Kanyievel"
