And Now This

Have you ever heard a classroom full of six graders playing “My Way” on Kazoos? Well this might be your lucky day!

Have you ever heard George Christie tell all the many secrets of the Hells Angels? Well, if you are a policeman of course you have but say you are not a policeman and you never saw George’s television show or read his book. Does listening to George talk sound like fun to you? Well, if you live in Los Angeles, August might be your lucky month!

A press release from a publicist named Susan Gordon alerts me so I can alert all of Los Angeles that “After enjoying packed performances in Ventura, Santa Barbara and Palm Desert, California, as well as Las Vegas and St Louis, former Hells Angels leader George Christie brings his critically acclaimed one-man show, Outlaw, to the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks for an August 2 opening.”

Restrooms!

The Whitefire Theatre, spelled like that, is a performance space for rent in the San Fernando Valley. It features “84 brand new high quality seats (expandable to 90);” “two restrooms;” “a new surround sound system;” and “metered parking” on the street.

For those who, for some reason, don’t know who George Christie is, or have never heard audio tapes of him singing let alone heard him play “My Way” on a kazoo, the release continues:

“During his years with the Hells Angels, Christie survived prison, multiple investigations, prosecutions and assassination attempts. Through it all, he considered himself to be a peacemaker in the outlaw biker community. With a reputation firmly established in popular culture, the Hells Angels have developed a modern mythology around themselves that presents as many questions about the group as answers. Are the Hells Angels organized criminals or compassionate givers to charity and the community? What really goes on behind closed club meeting doors?”

BYOK

“Christie, a force to be reckoned with,” the release continues, “has been involved with the motorcycle culture since 1966. For 40 years he rode with the Hells Angels spending 35 years as a leader, first as president of the Los Angeles chapter, then establishing the Ventura Hells Angels and eventually, the entire West Coast. His Hells Angels leadership evolved into Christie becoming an international spokesman for the organization. He became the official voice of the Hells Angels until his departure in 2011.”

Christie will perform “Outlaw” six times at the Whitefire: On August 2, 5, 9, 12, 17 and 24. Tickets are $25. The theater is located at 13500 Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks.

The release doesn’t actually promise that for 25 bucks you will get to listen to George hum. “My Way” on a kazoo for an hour and a half but, look, what else could this magical night of theater be? So if you are planning to attend, don’t forget to bring your own kazoo so you and George can hum along together.

    @Paladin, that me laugh and I spewed coffee on the screen. Excellent!

    I’d rather spend my 25 bucks on a case of beer and a couple of stogies than listen to Christie’s nonsense.

    Respects

    25 bux to see Georgie Puddin Pie or pick up a case and party with the bros. No brainer on that one.

  4. stroker Says:

    Watched the Christie “outlaw” trailer.
    I have one question:

    What’s a “frindge?”

  5. popeye Says:

    If you get a picture taken with George you can become an instagram outlaw

  6. Hangaround Says:

    Is that actual footage of audience participation at one of his prior performances? George looks to have succeeded at fully engaging his target audience!!

  7. oldskewl Says:

    To me the $64k question is who goes to these, who knows George enough to want to hear what he has to say, do they know he’s a rat, do they know he’s out bad?

    It’s not single mothers taking kids out for a night with George then ice cream, it’s not 81 so that leaves clueless weekend wannabes and FEDS. You can bet the Feds are outside watching everyone that goes in and taking notes.

    i understand club life being everything to you, especially after 40 years but when your OB and a snitch I think it’s time to slither away and hide… Or perhaps the only way to stay alive like Jay Dobyns is to be in front of the camera and the cops 24/7.

  8. Iron Rider Says:

    Bet if you were to sit across the street you would maybe see a handful of people show, and that’s probably the cops who George was buddies with

  9. WheresMyBoots Says:

    That is some soulful kazoo riffing, fine work. Why isn’t the black kid playing? Is he throwing a gang sign at the opening? Maybe he got jacked for his instrument in the lunch room by the two giggling girls–did they take some reefer before class? I’d look into that; you know playing jazz is a gateway instrument to the dope.
    Another fine article Don Davis, respects as always. Apologies for not contributing more, but fell on hard times again.
    Maybe I’ll speak to students about being out bad from HOG, write a book.
    Who’s this George guy again?

    Respects and Ride Free,

    The dikes in my town have a weekly kazoo night also….

  11. strongbrave Says:

    he is not an OUTLAW.

    Penguin

    Best story I ever read!!!!

  13. wind walker Says:

    If he is still looking over his shoulder, this could get ugly at one of his shows.

  14. Penguin Says:

    The Kazoo is on the shelf, and lonely…

    George walks by the shelf.

    The Kazoo calls out to George.

    “Hey George”

    “Yeah?” sez Georgie.

    “Blow me”

  15. david Says:

    Two restrooms wouldn’t be enough for all the puke.

  16. Stevo Says:

    What a turd.

  17. Snow Says:

    Time and age can be cruel, we can choose to get older gracefully, enjoying the memories of events and friends. Some for whatever reason just can’t seem to find their place there and go on long winded tale telling sessions. It seems Mr Christie is one who feels the need to self glorify, that’s sad it really is.

  18. Agnarr Says:

    Someone really needs to go and fetch him back inside, before he drowns in a rainstorm. Because it appears that they left the doors open again at the local medical center for Dementia patients.

    LMFAO!! What a farce! Even funnier is the fucking moron who believed his bullshit enough to kiss his ass and write up a story making him out as the be-all of bkers and HA!

    Stupid should hurt.

  21. Freeman Says:

    George who? George where? George how? George has been? George never will be again? George forgotten and ever will be, oh yeah George gone!!! Nooooow I remember! And that was a long .5 second.

  22. FF Says:

    George DICK

  23. jrino Says:

    I really don’t want to hear him any more than I want to hear Sonny put a thumb over his throat to talk. Revisionist history is why they take down Confederate memorials. I’d rather give the $25 to help a vet get his life back together.

  24. Muck 1%er Says:

    George who?

  25. Not Surprised Says:

    No question he is a cheap whore. Perfect example of how you can undo years of respect all by yourself.

  26. Paladin Says:

    What? No promotional press release for Jay Dobyns’ next speaking engagement? Where’s the impartiality in that?
