“Keep your head up high, stay loyal, remain free, and always value honor,” Barger wrote.

That's rich coming from a guy who spent a good chunk of his life in a gang that for several decades dealt meth, beat up beatniks Black and gay people, and "worked" tightly with the FBI (and probably the CIA).

I immediately think of the great quote from Charlie in 'Gimme Shelter'....

"Well done, Sonny."

A Clown in a gang of clowns.
No need to worship those guys in any way.
Turn on the ignore-button.
That’s the one thing they can’t stand.

Can't believe it's been over fifty years since I read Hunter Thompson's book on the Hells Angels. Of course Exile is fifty, Hot Rocks and Sticky Fingers are fifty one. Damn. You know you're old when you wouldn't mind being fifty again.

Was he in any of the Altamont scenes in Gimme Shelter?

Not sure, but isn't he the one being interviewed on radio, saying "Mick Jagger took us for suckers" or something to that effect?

He was, and Charlie commented, while watching him: 'Well done, Sonny'.

well done, sonny...
