Yes it is.  Being born and raised in Berkeley, I knew who he was in grade school.  He and the Angels were always in the news. As kids we talked a lot about them, including the initiations members had to go through.  By 7th grade I knew what get your wings meant ...

Here in Cleveburg I had a couple of friends who were members, one being the treasurer of the local chapter.  All nice people, to me anyway.  One thing for sure, if they said they had your back, they had your back.

83 years old ?  Wow.

"I asked Sonny Barger how he picks new members, new Angels, and he told me,

'We don't pick 'em. We recognize 'em.' "

And everybody grokked over that.

  
 In any gathering of Hell's Angels, from five to a possible hundred and fifty, there is no doubt who is running the show: Ralph "Sonny" Barger, the Maximum Leader, a six-foot, 170-pound warehouseman from East Oakland, the coolest head in the lot, and a tough, quick-thinking dealer when any action starts. By turns he is a fanatic, a philosopher, a brawler, a shrewd compromiser and a final arbitrator. To the Oakland Angels he is Ralph. Everybody else calls him Sonny . . . although when the party gets wild and loose he answers to names such as Prez, Papa and Daddy. Barger's word goes unquestioned, although many of the others could take him in two minutes if it ever came to a fight. But it never does. He rarely raises his voice—except in a rumble with outsiders.

After screening The Last Waltz, Ronnie turned to the Band and said something like, "Well that movie could use a bit more Robbie in it!"

and, from an article about him: "To this day, I have never heard a Beatle album. For 10 billion dollars, I couldn’t name one song on ‘Abbey Road.’ I have never in my life picked up a Beatle album, and listened to it. Never."
