Good Evel...not bad

I was lucky enough to speak to Evel on a number of occasions before he passed, thanks to my good friends the Thomas Family. The Thomas clan lived in Butte Montana, Evel's hometown. I have a few great Evel stories so remind me to tell ya next time I see you. He was a legend. This was painted by David LaFrance for Evel.  All kindsa trippy stuff to find in this piece. I asked him if we could meet for a beer in Butte sometime and he immediately replied "Son, I don't drink beer, Whiskey is a man's drink." He was a true original in my opinion. RIP EVEL.

You own that? I know where you live! I'm gonna steal it and change my name to Chris so I can say it's mine. That is killer. Way better than my Evel memento.

Evel loved fried Pork Chop sandwiches (Whop Chops's!). His favorite was the Freeway tavern in Butte. Muzzy is the owner and he can tell you Evel Stories for days. I'll post some more Evel stuff his family gave me over the next few weeks. Bill, I am armed and I have Night Vision.
