The George Christie story hits the road
I just checked out George Christie's web site to see if he has any new projects under way and I see that he has. The former president of the Ventura Hells Angels put out in bad for beefing with Sonny Barger after 40 years of service has a new stage show on the road called Outlaw. The world premier was April 11th in Ventura California.
May 2018 the production hit Santa Barbara and Palm Desert but June 22nd, 23rd, 24th 2018 it will be in Las Vegas. Outlaw is a one-man show, starring George Christie, written and directed by Richard La Plante. "OUTLAW chronicles the rise and fall of a man, from celebrity parties to solitary confinement in federal prison. It is the story of an era in America that has come and gone, with all its myth, magic, music and harsh reality. OUTLAW is also the story of redemption, human spirit and the will to survive." Good on ya.
Like Ralph Natale, George concludes that “For me, the club, with all its back biting and hypocrisy, had become the people we’d once rebelled against,” He says. “Brotherhood didn’t exist. Not like it used to.” Maybe if he applies for a pardon he can bring the show north of the 49.
The controversial DVD The last American Outlaw is epic.
His life story is also chronicled in the book Exile on Front Street.
