On Wednesday Slash Records Cover Of Elton John's Rocket Man was a top story. Here is the recap: (hennemusic) Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has recorded a version of Elton John's 1972 classic, "Rocket Man", in support of Hollywood stuntman Eddie Braun's upcoming attempt at Evel Knievel's jump across Idaho's Snake River Canyon.

Braun created a Kickstarter campaign to help pay for the 2016 stunt in an effort "to bring this to the masses." Slash received Elton John's permission to record the new "Rocket Man" version for use as the theme music for the Kickstarter campaign.

Each person who donates to the campaign will receive a download of "Rocket Man" performed by Slash with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators at Sunset Sound Studio in Hollywood.

"I approached the rock icon Slash, who I knew to be an Evel Knievel fan, and asked if he would be interested in being involved with my rocket project," explains Braun. "He gave us the most awesome gift we could ever dream: a theme song!

"Slash got permission from Sir Elton John to re-record his 1972 hit song 'Rocket Man' specifically for our project. Slash suggested we include the song with every reward so every single backer of our Kickstarter campaign gets it. So that's what we're doing!" Read more - here.
