Sonny Barger, notorious Hell's Angel founder and President :D will be at the Border's book store in Mesa (on Alma School Rd.) tonight at 7 p.m... Hell, I didn't even know he was still around! What a trip - from outlaw and Rolling Stones bodyguard to renowned author... :chopper:

Yeah, I know - bodyguard not the best term :wacko: - just that the Altamont thing was so notorious :nunu: ... Sonny lives in/near Cave Creek I think. I decided to roll in to the book store and he was there alright. Went ahead and got his book and said hello... Funny scene - a bunch of us bikers in line and girls from the Borders coffee shop running around serving free mudslides with whipped cream...

I've heard all of the crap and negativity about Mr. Barger since I found out who he was in 1966. And most of those opinions are crap. It seems you can't say 'Altamont' without mentioning his name. Yet, he wasn't the guy with the gun. How in the world an aggressor with a gun can magically flip his lawlessness to a guy sitting on the side of the stage having a beer is beyond me. And this comes from 'bikers.'

In his life he: customized motorcycles, he got into a few saloon scuffles, he got an unfair shake from a RICO vendetta and he wrote a book. Many of the same people who criticize him haven't even read a book much less written one.

And then, like supposed hero Lance Armstrong, he beats cancer.

When his final chapter is told it is clear that he will be remembered not for what he destroyed, but for what he built.
