What’s better than Hunter S. Thompson talking about the Hells Angels and Outlaw motorcycle life with Studs Terkel? Having it animated.
If you’ve never read Hell’s Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs by The Original Gonzo, do yourself a favor and set aside a few hours this weekend. It’s a quick, entertaining and mildly terrifying read, and to get you primed, the crew from PBS’ Blank On Blank put together this killer animation of Thompson on Terkel’s radio show back in 1967.
