P.S. Oakland is still a garbage bin.

Famous Ralph Sonny Barger moments…..The press conference where he stupidly read a statement stating he and his thugs were eligble and volunteers for combat military service in Vietnam…The stupid decision by Mick Jagger to use the local Hells Angels chapters as “security” for a free Rollin’ Stones concert at a speedway near Tracey and Livermore…The 1980’s bust of their walled clubhouse compound in Northern California…..I used to fly with the Air Forces reservists on those integrated crews which usually had a cop onboard.

I bought my first house at 9411 Golf Links Rd. in east Oakland in 1982 before real estate disclosure was in place.

The reviews make the book sound fascinating and it’s on my list. Maybe the Gold Coast and East Oakland are not that far apart, geographically and otherwise. I still remember the semi-automatic gun fire noise from Eastmont Mall and Oakland is forever on my mind.
