The autobiography -- the dangerous life and wild times -- of Sonny Barger, the legendary leader of the Hells Angels. Sonny Barger is the Hells Angel of all Hells Angels, the motorcycle club which has been the scourge of America for over forty years. Sonny was their de facto leader for much of that time, the man who Hunter S. Thompson immortalised in his 1965 classic Hells Angels, noting Barger is nothing short of Winston Churchill when it come to leading people. He's been called an American legend and he's feared and revered by people on both sides of the law. From the club's formation in the 1940s to the height of their notoriety twenty years later, from Sonny's first hand account of what really happened with the Rolling Stones at Altamont to his periods of imprisonment, from his fights with rival gangs and the police to his own battle with cancer, Hell's Angel sets the record straight. Sonny Barger has ridden with the Angels for forty years, obeying no law but that of the HAMC. For the first time, this is his own -- and their own -- story.

He is independent—choosing his own path on his motorcycle, living life on his own terms. He is outspoken—he has boldly criticized injustices in American law and society despite the backlash this has evoked from the establishment.

In dieser atemberaubenden Autobiografie erzählt George Wethern – Vizepräsident des ersten Hells-Angels-Charters in Oakland unter Bikerlegende Ralph »Sonny" Barger – von seinem Leben als Outlaw-Biker. Einem Leben, das geprägt war von Drogen, Waffen, Gewalt und den geheimen Ritualen eines Männerbundes. Wetherns Buch ist zugleich die Gründungsgeschichte der Hells Angels, die auf erschütternde Weise belegt, dass die ersten Charter hart an dem schlechten Ruf gearbeitet haben, der den Hells Angels heute vorauseilt. Wethern trat den Hells Angels kurz nach ihrer Gründung bei und blieb 14 Jahre. In dieser Zeit etablierte er sich als Clubdealer und belieferte bald die gesamte amerikanische Westküste mit allen Arten von Drogen. Unter anderem kaufte er LSD in riesigen Mengen und versorgte damit die Blumenkinder im Hippiebezirk Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. Jahrelang lebte Wethern in einem gefährlichen Auf und Ab aus ekstatischem Rausch und tiefer Depression und verlor dabei fast seine Familie – und seinen Verstand. Erst als er verhaftet wird und ihm lebenslange Haft droht, wacht er auf ...
