SLASH recorded a cover of the ELTON JOHN classic “Rocket Man”, to help out a guy named Eddie Braun. Eddie is a daredevil who plans to recreate EVEL KNIEVEL’s 1974 jump over Snake River Canyon.
As you may recall, that jump FAILED, and Knievel could have very easily DIED. Luckily, his injuries were minor.
Braun is trying to raise the $150,000 he needs to make the jump on Kickstarter. Prizes for donating include actually being able to WATCH the jump live, as well as a download of Slash’s “Rocket Man” cover.
As of last night, he’d made more than $38,000, with 22 days to go. He’s hoping to attempt the jump on September 17th.
