    He has died, according to his granddaughter. No more than that yet.

    Damn it.

    RIP, but you have to wonder if they couldn't take his casket and try that Snake River jump one last time ...

    Well, it's a good thing that he made peace with Kanye West before he died....

    His wikipedia entry is updated to include his death already.

    According to his Official Website, http://www.evelknievel.com, Evel Knievel has died on November 30, 2007, at age 69 of liver failure.


    I tried getting on his official site and it keeps timing out.

    When I was younger, I was an absolute freak of a fan of his. Sad news indeed.

    Well, other than for the fact that he beat his wife and kids, destroyed a guy's arm by smashing it repeatedly with an aluminum baseball bat and got his first motorcycle through burglaries.
