Clash Of The Titans

By Wyatt Earp | November 29, 2007

This is the most important story of our time. Like the Kennedy assassination and the September 11th attacks, you will forever remember where you were when you heard this news.

Evel Knievel and Kanye West have worked it out.

The 69-year-old iconic motorcycle daredevil said he and West met at his Clearwater condo recently. They settled a federal lawsuit over the use of Knievel’s trademarked image in a popular West music video.

Knievel sued West and his record company last year. He took issue with a 2006 music video for the song “Touch the Sky,” in which the rapper takes on the persona of “Evel Kanyevel” and tries to jump a rocket-powered motorcycle over a canyon.

Knievel failed in his attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon in Idaho in 1974. (H/T – )

Who knew that Evel Knievel was still alive? And for that matter, who even cares that Kanye West is still alive. This has-been and that never-was are about as relevant today as Jm J. Bullock and Peter Scolari.

This story would have made a larger impact upon my life if Evel looked into the camera and deadpanned, “George Bush doesn’t care about Kanye West’s dead mother.”

Oh, yeah, I’m going to Hell.
