My pleasure. I saw it too and it was fascinating and well produced. You had to feel sorry for mom though. She went through hell.

That part where the Hells Angels, fresh from the stabbing and riots at the Rolling Stones concert, decided to watch Evel and one idiot threw a wrench at him. The crowds reponse was all-American: "Don't F with Evel" LOL

Then there was Wembley and not enough Brit's had bought tickets. What did this master do? Told all of them:"You're welcome from the USA for saving your country". That was classic and about as un-PC as you can get.
