One Daredevil is taking Elton John's hit "Rocket Man" literally.

FOX's Laura Ingle has the story in this "Bonus Track":

(Elton John) "I'm a Rocket Man."

What do Elton John, Slash from Guns N' Roses and a Daredevil willing to risk it all have in common? The 1972 classic track, 'Rocket Man'. 

Sir Elton John has given the GNR ax man his permission to record a new version of his tune to be the theme song for Daredevil Eddie Braun's Kickstarter campaign, as he attempts to rocket across Idaho's Snake River Canyon recreating the famous stunt that nearly took the life Evel Knievel in 1974:

(Braun) "On September 17, 2016, I'm going to strap myself into a rocket and launch over a canyon."

Braun approached Slash for help, knowing he was a huge Evel Knievel fan and Slash immediately got on board. Braun's Kickstarter video invites viewers to donate to his fund to finance the death-defying mission, promising all who do a download of Slash's 'Rocket Man' tune and a chance to watch history.

I'm Laura Ingle and that's your "Bonus Track".
