Slash has recorded a cover of Elton John’s “Rocket Man”, to help out Eddie Braun who is a daredevil planning to recreate Evil Knievel’s 1974 jump over Snake River Canyon.
As you may recall, that jump failed, and Knievel could definitely have died. Luckily, his injuries were minor.
Braun is out to raise $150,000, which he needs to make the jump. Prizes for donating include being able to watch the jump live, as well as a download of Slash’s “Rocket Man” cover.
As of last night, Braun made more than $38,000 and has 22 days to go. He’s hoping to attempt the jump on September 17th.
The question I have: Why the hell can I not find the Slash version anywhere?! It’s great this guy wants to jump, but I wanna hear the song man.
