Hell's Angels: A Strange and Terrible Saga
The interview with Hunter S. Studs Terkel was a Pulitzer Prize-winning author who interviewed thousands of everyday Americans and international notables during his career. I used to take it out at night on the Coast Highway, just drunk out of my mind, ride it for 20 and 30 miles in just short pants and a t-shirt. I recognize it as an illusion and a fantasy. The angels, a lot of the angels are big on karate.
Hunter Thompson, our guest, is a new kind of journalist. The journalist who is not detached, who becomes involved and in fact he was almost an honorary member, or a dishonored member of the the Oakland Hells Angels.
You were with them for about a year or so? About a year, yeah. They just try to live peaceful lives and be left alone but on the other hand they go out and put themselves into situations deliberately and constantly, that are either going to humiliate somebody else or cause them to avoid humiliation by fighting.
You speak of foul fighting. They stomp someone. You were stomped. Your observations are more than about the Angels. I think the Angels came out of World War Two. This whole kind of alienated, violent, subculture of people wandering around looking for either an opportunity, or if not an opportunity then vengeance for not getting an opportunity. They get to be 30 and suddenly they wake up one morning and they realize there are no more chances.
It makes them meaner. They want to get back at the people who put them in this terrible, this dead end, tunnel. They call them the citizens. I think one of the most important things is to recognize that we do have this mounting violence in us and then to find the reasons.
I think this technological, the science of obsolescence, or the fact that people are becoming obsolete. The people who are most affected by this technological obsolescence are the ones least capable of understanding the reason for it, so the venom builds up much quicker.
It feeds on their ignorance. I learned a lot about myself just writing about the Angels. I was seeing a very ugly side of myself a lot of times. I think Lyndon Johnson would be a good Hells Angel, mentally, obviously not….. The Angels reflect not only the lower segments of the society but the higher, where violence takes a much more sophisticated and respectable form.
Then you go back in and punch him and break a bottle and stick it in his gut. The police treat them very gently…. They might cause a riot. In a small town the people who live there, like a town of 10 or 20,, get excited and terrified and they arm themselves and stand around in bands on street corners with guns and knives and clubs because they really believe that the Angels are going to come in and decimate the town.
The locals were armed. The Angels bring out this kind of violence in other people by confronting it. They confront them. Something occurred to me. They bring something out. Many affect beards and their hair is usually long and unkempt. Some wear a single earring in a pierced ear lobe. On my way back to San Francisco, I tried to compose a fitting epitaph.

According to the Lynch report, the members of the club had a record of felony arrests, felony convictions, more than 1, misdemeanor convictions. The report held that there would have been an even more extensive record, but for the Angels' practice of intimidating witnesses. The criminal actions listed by the Lynch report ranged from the terrorization of rural communities to the theft of motorcycle parts. Included were detailed charges of attempted murder, assault and battery, malicious destruction of property, narcotics violations and sexual aberrations. Investigating officers further reported that "both club members and female associates seem badly in need of a bath.
