Despite nine major accidents and numerous broken bones, American daredevil Evel Knievel entertained millions of fans with his well-publicized stunt shows. Knievel is best known for motorcycle jumping. In October 1975, he set his personal distance record by jumping 190 ft (58 m) over 14 Greyhound buses in King’s Island in Ohio.

Image

Evel Knievel 1973, “I’m alive because God rides with me on every jump,” said America’s no. 1 daredevil. “God gives me a flow of extra energy, and a quite, comfortable feeling wraps around me like a safety shield.” A partial one, at least: Knievel’s aura of immunity has not kept him from snapping nearly 500 of his bones. And it hasn’t protected him from the law. He was arrested after taking as swing at her former publicist with a baseball bat. A reformed safecracker who kidnapped the girl who would become his first wife, Knievel’s first professional stunt was jumping a crate filled with rattlesnakes and two staked mountain lion in 1965. Now, his son Robbie, is following in his retired daddy’s skid marks, and Evil is afraid he’ll kill himself: “Most kids his age are half-wits”

“Introverted, shy and nonassertive. He wasn’t at all sure that he could make a name for himself on his own. Neither was I.” He's not the weirdo people think he is. ------Quincy Jones on Michael Jackson

Image

Michael Jackson 1993, American singer, dancer, and songwriter Michael Jackson performs during a concert tour in Asia. Jackson began his career as a child performing with his brothers in the group known as the Jackson 5, and achieved worldwide fame as a solo performer, largely due to his unique style of singing and dancing. Jackson’s greatest musical success, the 1982 album Thriller, won an unprecedented eight Grammy Awards, produced a record-breaking seven Top Ten hits, and became the best-selling album in history up to that time. Because of Jackson’s eccentric and reclusive lifestyle, he has been a frequent target of the media spotlight.

Quatations:
- On appearance, it is in my family on my father's side. I use make-up to even out the blotches. When people make up stories that I don't want to be who I am it hurts me...what about all the millions of people who sit out in the sun to become darker, to become other than what they are? No one says anything about that. (Referring to vitiligo, a skin pigmentation disorder)
- On purpose, I haven't scratched the surface yet of what my real purpose is for being here.

Brooke Shields 1985, Lady Luck was not with Brooke Shields this night. While spinning a roulette wheel at a Washington, D.C, charity bash, tragedy struck: She broke a nail. The former child model and always-game actress quickly recovered, however, before moving on to the blackjack table.

Tommy Lee and Pamela Anderson 1998, their marriage brought joy to millions—in the privacy of their own homes, thanks to the bedside theft of the happy couple’s home video, which featured not only their Mexican wedding, but their consummation of it all over the island paradise of Hawaii. “Tommy is incredibly jealous, insecure, and controlling,” warned his former girlfriend, model Bobbie Brown. “He demands attention 24 hours a day.” Even though Pamela certainly seemed to be giving it to him, Tommy’s legendary temper resulted in a domestic violence charge, jail time, and divorce. Here, during a brief reunion, the shy couple shares a discreet moment at the Hard Rock Café & Casino in Las Vegas.

Marlon Brando 1991, Despite an Oscar-caliber performance in the court room, the on-screen Godfather couldn’t save his flesh and bloody son, Christian, from 10 years in the slammer. With no prior convictions, Christian quite possibly may have escaped a prison sentence for killing his half-sister’s boyfriend—until the Enquirer dug up evidence of several previous brutal assaults committed by the Method actor’s mad son. Deputy D.A. Bill Clark was ecstatic, saying, “We got very lucky with this extra evidence. We appreciate very much that help from the Enquirer.” It’s safe to say Marlon, shown here outside the courtroom, didn’t feel the same way.

La Toya Jackson 1989, Michael Jackson’s sibling knew a thing or two about snakes-in –the-grass. Tagged as the wild child of the Jackson clan for baring it all in a 1989 Playboy pictorial, La Toya claimed in her 1991 book that her father, Joe, beat all the Jacksons and sexually molested her and sister Rebbie. The attack allegedly left La Toya a sexual and emotional cripple, affecting her marriage with ex-con Jack Gordon. “I can’t stand him to touch me,” said La Toya. After divorcing Gordon in 1997, she filed a lawsuit claiming he had hit her for refusing to perform sleazy sex acts. Gordon denied the charge and bit back, saying it was the diminutive diva that beat him up.

Bill Cosby 1997, the man famous for his perpetual good cheer had nothing to smile about soon after he heard that his 27-year-old son had been gunned down on the side of the road while fixing a flat tire on the comic’s great Mercedes. “I loved Ennis more than life itself and now he’s gone,” Cosby said. He donated $1 million to the investigation, but it was the Enquirer’s $100,000 reward for information that led to the arrest and conviction of the killer, Mikail Markhasev. Ennis was buried at the Cosby family estate in Shelburne, Massachusetts. “They wanted their boy to be forever at home with the family,” said a source.

Mariah Carey 2000, sings like a butterfly, dressed like a tease: Fluttering around back-stage in a couture camisole by Emanuel Ungaro, Mariah Carey takes advantage of her appearance ( at a VH1 Divas Live Concert) to give a little lift to her body of work, specifically the multiplatinum 1997 recording , Butterfly. The New York songbird successfully emerged from the protective cocoon of her ex-husband and Svengali, Columbian Records executive Tommy Mottola, to drop her demure five-octave virtuoso image in favor of hip-hop rhythms, sexed-up videos, and a torrid romance with Latin pop star Luis Miguel.

Che Guvara, real name Ernesto Guevara (1928-1967), Latin American guerrilla leader and revolutionary theorist, who became a hero to the New Left radicals of the 1960s. Born into a middle-class family in Rosario, Argentina, Guevara received a medical degree from the University of Buenos Aires in 1953. Convinced that revolution was the only remedy for Latin America's social inequities, in 1954 he went to Mexico, where he joined exiled Cuban revolutionaries under Fidel Castro. In the late 1950s, he played an important role in Castro's guerrilla war against Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista, and when Castro came to power, he served as Cuba's minister of industry (1961-1965). A strong opponent of U.S. influence in the Third World, he helped guide the Castro regime on its leftward and pro-Communist path. The author of two books on guerrilla warfare, Guevara advocated peasant-based revolutionary movements in the developing countries. He disappeared from Cuba in 1965, reappearing the following year as an insurgent leader in Bolivia. He was captured by the Bolivian army and shot near Vallegrande on October 9, 1967.

Image

“All the time we knew him, he was always characterized by an extraordinary impetuousness, by the absolute scorn for danger…We were always worried about the possibility that his temperament, this behavior of his in moments of danger, could lead him to death in any battle.”------Fidel Castro

Image

Guevara’s State Funeral
Cuban citizens attend the state funeral for Ernesto “Che” Guevara, who fought in the Cuban Revolution. He was killed in 1967 while leading a rebel group in Bolivia. His remains were returned to Cuba for burial in 1997.

Quatations:
-homesickness, "Homesickness starts with food," said Che Guevara, pining perhaps for the vast roasts of his native Argentina while they, men alone in the night in Sierra Maestra, spoke of war.
-revolution, I believe in the armed struggle as the only solution for those people who fight to free themselves, and I am consistent with my beliefs. Many will call me an adventurer—and that I am, only one of a different sort: one of those who risks his skin to prove his platitudes ….. Written on leaving Cuba to resume an active role as a guerrilla leader, initially in the Congo and then Bolivia. Last letter to his parents.

Phil and Brynn Hartman 1998, Brynn Hartman, shown here with a smile that disguised her habit of mixing Zoloft with booze and coke, would soon end the life of Saturday Night Live and NewsRadio star Phil Hartman with a bullet to the head on May 28. Brynn then drove to the home of ex-boyfriend Ron Douglas, where she dropped the gun and let him pick it up, leaving his prints on the murder weapon. When he returned with her to the Hartman home, she locked him in a room with her husband’s corpse and went off to get another gun. He phoned 911. Fortunately, the Hartmans’ 9-year-old Sean unlocked the door and freed Douglas. When the police arrived, Brynn ended the ordeal the way it began, turning the gun on herself.

John Wayne Bobbitt 1994, He enjoys the fruits of his saber as he frolicks with these happy Playmates at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy mansion. After his Venezuelan-born-wife, Lorena, famously amputated his organ with a 12-inch kitchen knife, Bobbitt quickly put his re-attached appendage to work, starring it in two X-rated videos, Frankenpenis and John Wayne Bobbitt Uncut. A divorce, a career as a striptease artist, and a signature line of ***** protectors followed, before Bobbitt sank for good into the inescapable swamp of notorious curiosities.
