Hunter and The Tramp

The origins of Hunter Thompson’s 1966 book, Hell’s Angels: The Strange Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs can be found in a 1965 article for The Nation magazine. The article entitled The Motorcycle Gangs: Losers and Outsiders prompted several book offers. Accepting a deal with Random House Thompson spent the next year living in close quarters with the Oakland and San Bernardino chapters of the Hell’s Angels, interviewing them extensively.

Interviewed here is an iconic member of the Oakland chapter, John Terrence Tracy a.k.a. Terry the Tramp. Thompson questions him about various run-ins with the law and other Hells Angles activities.

    Have you seen Hell’ Angels 69? It’s a strangely good movie. I don;t know why ’cause it’s actually bad. But kind of good. But bad. But good.
