Plot Synopsis

Using first-person interviews along with archival footage and re-creations, former Hells Angel George Christie Jr., the longtime president of the Ventura Hells Angel chapter (1978-2011), gives an inside look at the club and its sinister secrets, revealing everything from initiation rites to dealing with their rivals. The Hells Angels are the most notorious motorcycle club in history. They're also one of the most secretive organizations on the planet. Members are known to take revenge on each other for talking. In OUTLAW CHRONICLES: HELLS ANGELS, Christie comes clean, baring all the club's secrets. Christie was born in 1947 in Ventura, California to a family of Greek immigrants and grew up an only child. From an early age, he was fascinated by motorcycles and outlaw culture, and in 1966, despite the objections of his father, he bought his first bike -- a 1957 Panhead -- for $200. He was soon hanging around with Ventura outlaw bike club The Question Marks and famous motorcycle customizers Von Dutch and Dick Woods. He became a full-patch Hells Angel in the Los Angeles charter in 1976 and, six months later, became its president, before founding the Ventura charter in 1978. As Ventura leader, Christie became one of the most powerful voices in the national Hells Angels organization, and spent three decades battling the law, rival gangs and members of his own club, while building the club's business operations. In 2011, Christie resigned his presidency of the Ventura charter and left the club, and was immediately excommunicated by his former brothers. George spent 18 months in prison from 2013-2014 for conspiring to firebomb two Ventura tattoo shops.
