GEORGE CHRISTIE

For more than three decades, George Christie was among the most prominent leaders of the Hells Angels biker organization. He was prosecuted and persecuted; hunted and hated, but always respected, even by his enemies, of which there were many.

In this 30-minute episode of Talk About Las Vegas, Christie talks about his more than three decades as president of the Ventura Chapter of the Hells Angels, his troubles with the law, his time in jail and his decision to leave the club and begin a new life.

After forty years in the Hells Angels, George Christie was ready to retire. As president of the high-profile Ventura charter of the club, he had been the yin to Sonny Barger’s yang. Barger was the reckless figurehead and de facto world leader of the Hells 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, rock musicians, and police chief captains among his friends.

But leaving the Hells Angels 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, and even told he should remove his Death Head tattoo.

Now Christie sets out to tell his story. Exile on Front Street is the tale of how a former Marine gave up a comfortable job with the Department of Defense and swore allegiance to the Hells Angels. In this revealing, hard-hitting memoir, he recounts his life as an outlaw biker with the world’s most infamous motorcycle club.

George Christie was a leader in the Hells Angels for nearly 40 years. He's been investigated and prosecuted, and been around some fascinating people from Hollywood to Las Vegas.

Appearance on CNN

George Christie, the last American outlaw, reveals the truth about the Hells Angels in a six-part series. Based on the show's success in the US, the series is now airing in Canada, Europe and the UK.

The Hells Angels are the single 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. Now, for the first time ever, a Hells Angels member will bare all the club’s secrets. A former angel will come clean. He’ll tell the world about everything from initiation rites to murder for hire.

Based on his memoir “Exile on Front Street”, "Outlaw" explores how the son of poor Greek immigrants became one of the most influential leaders of the world’s most infamous motorcycle club.

"This is a tale well worth the telling and for an audience, it is exceedingly well worth the seeing." -Samantha Simmonds-Ronceros, NoHo Arts District

“This show has taken me deeper into realizing why I became who I am. I am not making excuses, nor am I condemning my old lifestyle. It’s helping me find peace with myself. I don’t think you can grow if you don’t explore the good with the bad.”

An Evening with George features a lecture in George’s riveting plainspoken style, revealing the gritty, incredible-yet-true stories from his years as a Hells Angel. From the funny to the profound, these anecdotes weave a tale of the outlaw life—and how it changed over decades from an all-for-one brotherhood, to the current me-first scramble for power and riches. He’ll also narrate a history-rich slide show of fascinating personal photos from his own (and the Hells Angels) history, and answer questions in a no-holds-barred question-and-answer session. Copies of "Exile on Front Street" will also be available for purchase.
