A pretty good read about Bernie Guindon and the Club with the coolest name.
May 12, 2017
This is a well written book, but it's not the history of The Satan's Choice Motorcycle Club and its members. Instead, Peter Edwards writes a professionally documented, albeit fairly depressing personal history about Bernie Guindon, the long time president of the club who revived it from its ashes in the early 1960s. Guindon reveals precious little about club business or its workings, but he does go into serious detail about how he was sent to prison for the bulk of his MC patch days. There are plenty of stories about the members, some funny, some not so funny, some quite sad. There's also plenty about Bernie's abusive upbringing and his own demons. Unfortunately the writer barely answers some of the hard questions though, like how Satan's Choice became so big and so feared, but incredibly vanished into history. For anyone who grew up during the Satan's Choice era this book is a pretty good read.
