After forty years in the Hells Angels, George Christie was ready to retire.
As the president of the notorious Ventura chapter for the club, he had been
the yin to Sonny Barger's yang. Barger was the reckless figurehead and de
facto world leader of the Angels. Christie was the negotiator, the
spokesman, the thinker, the guy who smoothed things out. He was the one who
carried the Olympic torch and counted movie stars, artists, the Grateful
Dead and the police chief captains among his friends. But leaving isn't
easy, and within two weeks of retirement he was told he was 'out bad',
blackballed by his fellow Angels, prohibited from wearing the club patch,
even told he should remove his Death Head tattoo.Now, Christie's set out to
tell his story. Exile on Front Street is the tale of how a midde-class
electrician gave up a comfortable job with the Department of Defense and
swore allegiance to the Hells Angels. In this action-packed, hard-hitting
memoir, he recounts his life as an outlaw biker with the world's most
infamous motorcycle club.
