A former president of the Hells Angels has spoken out publicly about the decision to leave the motorcycle group after four decades, saying he was immediately excommunicated by the men he once called brothers.

George Christie said leaving the infamous club was a “difficult decision” but that he “doesn’t miss prison”. The 77-year-old resigned from the club in 2011, leaving behind his presidency of the Ventura chapter.




He said he had become disillusioned with the group, which had turned from a brotherhood when he first joined all-out war. By the time he was getting ready to leave, he said Hells Angels were fighting all the other major outlaw motorcycle clubs as well as law enforcement.

Speaking to Fox News Digital, George said: ‘I thought, foolishly, that I could walk away because of my position at the club and the 40 years I have given them. But the bottom line is you’re either in or you’re out.”

George claims that when he left the club, members were no longer allowed to talk to him. He has shared his experiences being part of the motorcycle group in the new A&E series, Secrets of The Hells Angels.

“I miss the camaraderie, the brotherhood. I miss the good times. I even miss the bad times. But I’m a realist,” he explained. ‘I don’t want to live in the hypothetical world.

“It is what it is. I gave them forty years of my life. I walked away when I thought it was an appropriate time to do so. And I think now I am where I should be in life. “
