It was an utterly extraordinary and terrifying noise—‘a loud crunching sound’—as Hells Angel Anthony Zervas’ head was smashed open on a Sydney Airport terminal floor with a metal bollard.

Birney Jarvis, an early Hells Angels member who departed back to the straighter side of life and became the police reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle, caught the real nature of the gang, reporting: ‘Some of the guys are pure animals. They’d be animals in any society. ’ After the Angels Camp incident, some of the clubs, including the Hells Angels and other, smaller clubs, gathered to discuss the fallout and the ongoing finger-pointing by the AMA. It was at this meeting they decided to embrace the term ‘one-percenter’.

Among its ranks was one Ralph ‘Sonny’ Barger, who had just come out of a stint in the US Army.
