The leader of the “Hell’s Angels” died at the age of 83

Ralf Hubert Bardžer, known by the nickname Soni, leader and founder of “Hell’s Angels”, died at the age of 83, after a long battle with liver cancer.

The announcement was published on his behalf on his Facebook page:

“If you’re reading this, it means I’m gone. I asked that this message be published after my death.”

“I lived a long and beautiful life, full of adventures. I also had the opportunity to be part of a fantastic club. Although I have been in the public eye for decades, I have enjoyed spending time with my brothers, family and close friends.”

“Be proud, stay loyal and free and always value honor,” reads the message he signed with “Sony HAMCO,” which stands for Hells Angels Motorcycle Club Oakland, the club he founded back in 1957.

“Hell’s Angels” became famous in 1967, after Hunter S. Thompson published the novel “Hell’s Angels: The Strange and Horrible Saga of Motorcycle Gangs”.

However, they quickly fell into disrepute after a violent clash with visitors to the Rolling Stones concert in Altamont in 1969. Then a certain Meredith Hunter was killed with a knife by one of the members of the “Hell’s Angels”.

Four years later, Barger was convicted of drug possession and spent almost five years in prison.
