Freewheelin' Frank

I have a first edition of Frank Reynolds' mid-sixties autobiography 'Freewheelin' Frank, Secretary of the Angels' which is a great insight into the club at the time and the Californian counter-culture. I tried to find out a bit more about Frank, and found these images taken by Larry Keenan (who took the original book cover's photo in 1966, which Frank is holding). Frank died a few years ago, but it's interesting to still see his club tattoo here in 2000, blacked over. He discovered Zen in prison, hence the other book he's holding. Fascinating to discover what happened to these original outlaws.
