6  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Would you fight Chuck Zito? on: February 16, 2007, 04:03:23 PM

The first time I met CHUCK ZITO, the president of the New York Charter of Hell's Angels, I was at the bar in Studio 54 with my girlfriend Patti. The year was 1979. The bar was crowded, the music hot. I noticed an argument off to my right, looked and saw this one guy, Chuck, arguing with three guys. As fast as the blink of an eye, a fight between Chuck and the three men broke out, and within fifteen seconds, Chuck knocked all three guys out cold and went back to talking with two blonde women. I was born and raised in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn and I've seen a lot of street fights in my day, but I never saw anyone with the controlled, precise aggression possessed by Chuck. Watching him fight was like watching some kind of natural disaster—a hurricane or a cyclone—in action.

Soon after the three came to, the police were called. I knew Studio 54 well and its serpentine basement leading to its back doors. When I saw the cops coming towards Chuck, I hurried over to him and told him to follow me—that I'd lead him out a back door. Without asking me a question, he followed me to the basement, then across to the other side of the club. As we made our way there, we passed a small group of people standing in a loose circle passing around thumb-sized vials of Cocaine, talking animatedly. Truman Capote, Andy Warhol and Halston were part of the group. Truman was wearing a baggy white caftan and a big straw hat. Chuck apparently knew Andy, for Warhol greeted him like a friend. Chuck said he had to go and we made our way to the rear entrance of the club and I opened the 53rd Street exit for him. He said "Thanks" and took off into the New York night. I made my way back to the bar and Patti and watched two of three guys—with obviously broken jaws—taken away by paramedics...

The next time I saw Chuck, two weeks later, was at Café Central on West 74th and Amsterdam Avenue. Café Central was truly an in-spot then. Bruce Willis, still a struggling actor, was the bartender. Some of the Café's regulars were Danny Aiello, Bobby DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Peter Weller, Peter Riegart, Tony Danza, Paul Herman and on and on. Chuck saw me, came over and again said thanks. We sat and had a drink—he a Coke, me a beer; he told me he didn't drink alcohol at all. I asked him what happened at Studio 54. He said those three guys said something rude to the women he'd been talking to. "They were," he told me, "just friends of mine, but those jerks didn't know if one of them was my girl or wife or whatever. You've got to draw the line somewhere." I told him how two of three "jerks" had to taken away by paramedics. "Good," he said. "Maybe next time they'll have some respect." "No doubt they will," I told him.

And that's how I became friends with Chuck Zito. Over the years our friendship grew and I now consider him one of my closet, dearest buddies. If I ever had to be in a foxhole with anyone, I'd want it to be him. He is, without a doubt, the most stand-up guy I've ever met, the best person in the world to watch your back. He is a loyal, sincere man automatically willing to make your battles his, your enemies his enemies. Though I hasten to say, if you've ever done anything to make Chuck mad at you, leave town right away and don't come back...


SECONDS: First off, why did you join the Hells Angels?
ZITO: I used to watch their movies when I was a kid. I remember going to see Hells Angels On Wheels when I was twelve years old and then Hells Angels '69. They inspired me to ride a motorcycle. I made a mini-bike when I was twelve years old, that's how I started. When I was old enough to ride a motorcycle and got my license, I bought a '69 Sportster. I was boxing in Gramercy Gym and I met the president of the Hells Angels, Sandy Alexander, who was also a professional boxer.

SECONDS: How old were you then?
ZITO: I joined the club when I was twenty-five, so I was like twenty-three at the time. I used to belong to another club from the Bronx called the Ching-A-Ling Nomads. I Introduced myself as a Ching-A-Ling and he introduced himself as a Hells Angel. I was excited to meet the guy.

SECONDS: How does somebody become a Hells Angel?
ZITO: You have to hang around first. It's called the "hang around" process. You get to know them, they get to know you and see if they like you. Then they'll vote on you to become a prospect. You have to be sponsored by a Hells Angel. One "no" vote and you're out.

SECONDS: Why did you want to become a Hells Angel?
ZITO: Like I said, when I was a kid, they inspired me.

SECONDS: Right, but then you were a twenty-five-year-old adult. What was it about them that you saw then?
ZITO: I belonged to another club, and liked the camaraderie. There was no club but the Hells Angels as far as I was concerned. The only reason I joined the other club was because I didn't know there were any Hells Angels in New York at the time. But when I saw them, I was infatuated by them. They were the elite, they were the number one club, they were it.

SECONDS: What makes the Hells Angels special? Why do they differ from other clubs?
ZITO: Even before I was a Hells Angel, I was in the Ching-A-Lings. We considered ourselves the number two club, like all other clubs do, because you're proud to be a member of that club. But we always knew that the Hells Angels were the trendsetters. They were the original outlaws of motorcycle riders. Let's go back to July 4, 1947, to Hollister, California where the AMA—the American Motorcycle Association—sanctioned the Gypsy Tour Run, when the Booze Fighters, POBOBs—Pissed Off Bastards Of Bloomington—and the Market Street Commandos took over the town for nearly three days. Two months later, the same clubs go to Riverside, California for the Labor Day weekend, another AMA sanctioned event. The same thing happens like in Hollister. Over four thousand people, bikers and citizens, took over the town's main street. A Riverside sheriff, Carl Rayburn, blames a bunch of punk kids for disrupting his town. They're rebels, they're outlaws. So from an angry lawman's mouth, the Outlaw Motorcyclists were born. Six months later the POBOBs became the first Hells Angels charter on March 17, 1948, in San Bernardino, California, also known as "Berdoo." Then that same year, the AMA made a statement that ninety-nine percent of the motorcyclists are good people enjoying a clean sport and it's the one percent that are anti-social barbarians. The term "One Percenters" is born. On April 1st, 1957, Ralph "Sonny" Barger started the Oakland Hells Angels. In 1959, Sonny called a meeting with all the old bike clubs—the Gypsy Jokers, the Galloping Gooses, Satan's Slaves and everybody else. They decided to ally themselves under a "One Percenter" patch. That's where they designed that diamond-shaped One Percent patch. Sonny and another Hells Angel who was at the meeting thought they were beyond a little patch so they headed down to a local tattoo shop in Oakland and were the first to get the famous One Percent tattoos. So it just goes to show you that it was always the Hells Angels first. They were the originals and all other clubs try and imitate what the Hells Angels have already done.

SECONDS: How many charters are there?
ZITO: There's probably about 150 charters in the world. We're the biggest international club there is.

SECONDS: There's so many of you. How do you get to know each other?
ZITO: It's not that I've met every Hells Angel in the world, but I've met Hells Angels from every charter at one time or another.

SECONDS: Do you have conferences once a year?
ZITO: We have what's called a USA Run, where every Hells Angel in the United States meets at a certain location. They have the same thing in Europe. Then we have a World Run, where representatives from all the charters meet. When we have a run, it's for families; it's for Hells Angels to get together, people who are new in the club, people who are old. See, I'm fortunate that I get around a lot because of my movie business. I'm in California a lot; I go overseas sometimes and I meet more Hells Angels than other Angels do. Through word of mouth a lot of people know who I am. Some people see me on the screen and read about me in books and magazines and know me from there.

SECONDS: On the other hand, the Hells Angels have a notorious reputation.
ZITO: It depends who you talk to. The media always gets a little carried away. We got that reputation from Altamont in 1969, where a Hells Angel stabbed a concertgoer. It made big headlines but it didn't say in the paper he had a gun and was trying to shoot Mick Jagger and a Hells Angel, and he got stabbed for his troubles. The Hells Angel was acquitted a week later but you never read about it.

SECONDS: What about the Methamphetamines? The Government says the Hells Angels are the biggest Methamphetamine dealers in the United States and you're all millionaires.
ZITO: Let me tell you something: I have members in my charter who, after paying their rent and house bills and taking care of their families, don't even have enough money left over to pay the fifteen dollars a week dues.

SECONDS: So what you're saying is don't believe everything you read?
ZITO: Exactamundo.

SECONDS: So your organization doesn't sell drugs?
ZITO: Myself, I don't drink, I don't smoke and I never took a drug in my life but yet I'm supposed to be this drug-taking, drug-selling Hells Angel and belong to a criminal organization. The thing that pisses me off, and it's happened time and time again—almost every article I read about the Hells Angels is either by the Government or some other law enforcement agency or some jerk-off trying to make a quick buck off our name, and they write a book about the club…but yet none of them know jack shit about what they're talking about. When people hear about the Hells Angels, they don't know if it's myth, rumors or just plain bullshit. Even if we get a retraction later on down the road, the damage is already done. The bad stuff sticks in people's minds whether it's true or not. Now as far as the organization selling drugs, no. Individuals selling drugs is something else.

SECONDS: So individuals do sell drugs?
ZITO: Individuals in many organizations do a lot of different things. Most recently, fifteen cops from New York City's 48th Precinct were indicted for various crimes—drugs, shakedowns, extortions, et cetera. Does that mean we're going to condemn the whole police department for what a few individuals did? Most certainly not. So if one, or two, or a handful of guys sells drugs for their own personal gain and profit who just so happens to be a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, we want that same consideration.

SECONDS: You are also a professional bodyguard. Who are some of the people whose bodies you have guarded?
ZITO: You could probably ask who haven't I guarded. I've guarded everybody from Liza Minneli to Sean Penn, Charlie Sheen, Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts, Charles Bronson, Sylvester Stallone.

SECONDS: As a bodyguard, have you ever had to hit someone?
ZITO: Not exactly hit them, but I've restrained a few people. See, I like to employ wrist-locks and arm-bars and walk them out of a situation without the client even knowing what's happened. When I was guarding Liza, there was a guy up on the fire escape with a long trenchcoat on and when we walked out, I saw him reach into his jacket like he was going for a gun. I pushed Liza out of the way and grabbed this guy. I had one hand on his arm that was in the coat and one hand around his adam's apple. I pulled his arm out and he wound up having a camera in there. The next thing I thought about was him suing us. Of course, people wound up getting front-row tickets for Liza's show and it was all taken care of….

SECONDS: What kind of training have you had?
ZITO: I've been fighting my whole life. I've trained in six different styles of martial arts; two forms of Kung Fu—White Crane and Tiger Claw Kung Fu—Isshinryu Karate, Jukido Jujitsu, Kumite Ryu Jujitsu, Vee Arnis Jitsu; and I've trained in three different styles of weapons: Kamas—thirteen-inch sticks with a blade attached to them—and also nunchakus and bo staffs. I'm proficient in every art.

SECONDS: What about boxing?
ZITO: Since I was five years old. My father was a professional fighter—his name was Al La Barba.

SECONDS: How many fights did he have?
ZITO: 228 fights and twelve losses—and never knocked out. He fought in the Thirties and Forties and started out as a Lightweight and moved up to Welterweight. I don't know any other sport except fighting. I don't know basketball, football, hockey, baseball—I just know fighting.

SECONDS: Have you ever backed down from a fight?
ZITO: No. If the challenge to fight was there, I always took it.

SECONDS: While speaking of challenges, you act also.
ZITO: Yes, I started acting two years ago. I was a stuntman for over fifteen years. Almost every action film, you can see my name in the credits—Die Hard 3, The Specialist, True Lies, Carlito's Way, Heat, A Bronx Tale, Eraser, The Last Action Hero—I'd have to look at my resume because there's so many.

SECONDS: What interests you in acting? Money? Fame? The art?
ZITO: I did a movie back in 1979 with Meat Loaf and Cher called Dead Ringer and that was my first stunt job. In fact, there were eighteen Hells Angels in that movie. I got my SAG card through that movie. Next, I met Mickey Rourke during The Pope of Greenwich Village and started to be his bodyguard and personal trainer. Then, I worked on Year of The Dragon with him.

SECONDS: Did you inspire Mickey to get into riding motorcycles?
ZITO: I gave Mickey his first Harley Davidson. I guess you could say I started him in the bike craze. He was known as the "Bad Boy Of Hollywood" and then Mickey started everybody else in Hollywood with riding.

SECONDS: How does Harley Davidson feel about the Angels?
ZITO: Thirty years ago, they loved the Hells Angels but now that they're so big, Harley Davidson has distanced themselves from the club—even though the Hells Angels and other outlaw motorcycle clubs were buying all their bikes.

SECONDS: And making them famous.
ZITO: Making them famous is right. All we'd ride is an American-made motorcycle and Harley Davidson is the only one there is.

SECONDS: What do you think of Japanese bikes?
ZITO: I have nothing against anybody who rides a motorcycle but personally, those bikes make a shitty fucking noise. They sound like a blender or lawnmower. There's something about the meaty sound of a Harley…

SECONDS: Do you find acting exciting?
ZITO: What it is, Phil, I watch a lot of these actors and I say to myself, "I could do it better." They're trying to act like what I am—but they're acting, they're not doing it every day. I had a little part in The Specialist but they took my part away because I looked too much like Stallone. I had a scene with him and the director yells, "Cut!" and says, "Chuck, I've got to pull you out of this—you look too much like Sly." I said, "Well, then pull him out of the way."

SECONDS: Are you more comfortable in the ring or in front of a camera?
ZITO: I think in front of a camera—a camera's not hitting me back, you know? But I'm very comfortable. I like fighting—

SECONDS: Why do you like fighting?
ZITO: Because I grew up with the sport. It's the first thing I knew how to do well.

SECONDS: If you get in a street fight and you break somebody's jaw, do you feel bad?
ZITO: Not at all.

SECONDS: Why not?
ZITO: Because they were trying to break my jaw. It's either hit or get hit, so I try to do the hitting. I'll try to talk myself out of a fight—sometimes—but then there's only so much talking you can do before you get it on. If I know I'm going to get it on with a guy, I'm going to hit him first.

SECONDS: You're a pretty fierce looking guy. Why would someone want to challenge you?
ZITO: They do. I don't understand it myself. It's not one guy, it's usually a few guys. I go every place by myself no matter what city, state or country it is, and most of the time I'm wearing my Hells Angel jacket. It's always three guys that want to challenge you— "Is he as bad as he thinks?" That's how it starts. It's like the old West, I guess. Maybe you're not carrying a gun on your side but you've got two hands to throw punches and guys want to take their chances. Most of them find out it was the wrong thing to do. I'm still here and still pretty like Ali.

SECONDS: In conclusion what was more intimidating to you: fighting three guys at once or being onstage?
ZITO: Being onstage. That was more intimidating. The three guys I knew I could handle, no problem. But the audience looking at me, I was scared. Every time I said my line, I said, "Okay, I got through that one—keep going." I remember I left out a whole paragraph that I was supposed to say first and I wound up putting it at the end. But it worked out and I didn't get scared. The audience didn't know I screwed up, and I didn't let them know I screwed up and had fear in me. It's just showbiz. I play any character they pay me to be. If you pay me, I'll get beat up. I get beat up in a lot of these movies—which doesn't happen in real life.

Momma's wrong again.

Blingualism in this country is basically a slap in the face to every culture that integrated.  German, Irish, Italian, etc all learned the language.  Mexicans shouldn't get a free ride on this one.  Never.

I understand what you mean, their intentions were different compared to mexicans (& developing countries) today, unfortunately. People aren't into settling down in one place any more, and assimilating into society.

Any person being in a foreign country should respect the culture and the language. Being multilingual isn't a bad thing.

I'm assuming many of these people are illegal so why should they take the responsibility to learn the language or even go through the immigration process when they've completely eliminated the paper work themselves.

Here's an Arnold Schwarzenegger quote, it might be offensive to some.

"The guys who own the most real estate in Los Angeles are Europeans. There are people coming over from Yugoslavia with hardly any money...a friend of mine came over from Czechoslovakia in '68 and he now owns four apartment buildings. Americans are still sitting on their asses waiting for it. Europeans are hungry because we don't have that much."

I think this goes for any immigrant.

USSoccerPlayers (February 9, 2007) -- Arsenal and Kroenke Sports Enterprises announced a partnership on Friday, which will include the establishment of a club tournament open to American teams and a re-branding of the logo and uniforms of the Colorado Rapids.

"We are delighted to be able to announce our alliance with Kroenke Sports Enterprises," said Arsenal FC managing director Keith Edelman in a statement. "This is a very important step for Arsenal as this becomes our first venture into the United States marketplace. We are approaching this as a long term development alliance that will benefit both clubs significantly."

The Arsenal Center of Excellence will be established at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, which will open in 2007 as the new home of the Colorado Rapids. The alliance between the clubs includes a combination of commercial and marketing efforts along with an exchange of knowledge between coaches and administrators.

"We are thrilled to have established such an alliance with one of the leading clubs in the world that will help continue the expansion of our sport well into the future," said KSE executive vice-president and chief marketing Officer Paul Andrews. "We are looking forward to a successful, long lasting relationship."

The Arsenal Cup, a club tournament open to American club teams, will be hosted at Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Details will be made public on a later date.

"This groundbreaking alliance with Arsenal, a team that has been in the first flights of the sport for more than 100 years is the one of the stepping stones to continue pushing our sport into the next level," said Colorado Rapids managing director Jeff Plush. "In today's international business community, soccer is the only true global sport that transcends ethnicity, culture and language and with this type of relationships we are making sure that our company is expanding this vision through our worldwide sport."

As part of the agreement, the Rapids will conduct a portion of their preseason training camp on Arsenal's grounds in London from March 8-13.

The Rapids will sports new uniforms, colors and logo for the 2007 season, utilizing the same burgundy and sky blue colors seen in Arsenal's jerseys.

The team's new logo, which was designed by sports branding company SME, features a trademarked shield design, the number 96, which is representative of the team's year of inception, a stylized one-of-a-kind version of a traditional soccer ball graphic set against the backdrop of the Rocky Mountains, and all of it crowned by a re-imagined Colorado Rapids word mark.

"Since KSE arrived on the Colorado sports scene, the company has created a bloodline that has been shared by all its teams," said Plush. "The Rapids will now have the company's lineage reflected in their identity as we now move forward tied indelibly to KSE's strong winning tradition and commitment to excellence."

And finally again from the UK he states he is not a crook but has 30 million for you


I am David Palmer, staff of SMITH & WILLIAMSON Private Banking.

I am contacting you concerning a deceased customer and an investment he placed under our
banks management three years ago.I would respectfully request that you keep the contents
of this mail confidential and respect the integrity of the information you come by as a
result of this mail.

I contacted you independently of our investigation and no one is informed of this
communication. I would like to intimate you with certain facts that I believe would be of
interest to you.In 2000, the subject matter; came to our bank to engage in business
discussions with our private banking division. He informed us that he had a financial
portfolio of Thirty million united states dollars,which he wished to have us turn over
(invest) on his behalf.I was the officer assigned to his case, I made numerous suggestions
in line with my duties as the de-facto chief operations officer of the private banking
sector, especially given the volume of funds he wished to put into our bank. We met on
numerous occasions prior to any investments being placed. I encouraged him to consider
various rowth funds with prime ratings.

The favored route in my advise to customers is to start by assessing data on 6000
traditional stocks and bond managers and 2000 managers of alternative investments. Based
on my advice, We spun the money around various opportunities and made attractive margins
for our first months of operation, the accrued profit and interest stood at this point at
over ten million United States Dollars, this margin was not the full potential of the fund
but he desired low risk guaranteed returns on investments.

This bank also gives the choice to depositors of having their mail sent to them or held at
the bank itself, ensuring that there are no traces of the account and as I said, rarely do
they nominate next of kin. Private banking clients apart from not nominating next of kin
also usually in most cases leave wills in our care, in this case; the deceased died
without a testate. In line with our internal processes for account holders who have passed
away, we instituted our own investigations in good faith to determine who should have
right to claim the estate. This investigation has for the past months been unfruitful.We
have scanned every continent and used our private investigation affiliate companies to get
to the root of the problem. It is this investigation that resulted in my being furnished
with your details as a possible relative of the deceased. My official capacity dictates
that I am the only party to supervise the investigation and the only party to receive the
results of the investigation. What this means, you being the last batch of names we have
considered, is that our dear late fellow died with no known or identifiable family member.
This leaves me as the only person with the full picture of what the prevailing situation
is in relation to the deposit and the late beneficiary of the deposit. According to
practice, The Security Firm will by the end of this financial year broadcast a request for
statements of claim to SMITH & WILLIAMSON,failing to receive viable claims they will most
probably revert the deposit back to SMITH & WILLIAMSON.This will result in the money
entering the SMITH & WILLIAMSON accounting system and the portfolio will be out of my
hands and out of the private banking division. This will not happen if I have my way.

My proposal; you share the same surname With our late client; I am prepared to place you
in a position to instruct The security Firm to release the deposit to you as the closest
surviving relation.Upon receipt of the deposit,I am prepared to share the money with you
in half. That is: I will simply nominate you as the next of kin and have them release the
deposit to you. We share the proceeds 50/50.I would have gone ahead to ask the funds be
released to me, butthat would have drawn a straight line to me and my involvement in
claiming the deposit. But on the other hand, you with the same very name as the original
depositor would easily pass as the beneficiary with right to claim. I assure you that I
could have the deposit released to you within a few days. I will simply inform the bank of
the final closing of the file relating to the deceased I will then officially communicate
with The Security Firm and instruct them to release the deposit to you. With these two
things: all is done. The alternative would be for us to have The Security Firm direct the
funds to another bank with you as account holder. This way there will be no need for you
to think of receiving the money from The Security Company. We can fine-tune this based on
our interactions. I am aware of the consequences of this proposal. I ask that if you find
no interest in this project that you should discard this mail. I ask that you do not be
vindictive and destructive. If my offer is of no appeal to you,delete this message and
forget I ever contacted you. Do not destroy my career because you do not approve of my
proposal. You may not know this but people like myself who have made tidy sums out of
comparable situations run the whole private banking sector.

I am not a criminal and what I do, I do not find against good conscience, this may be hard
for you to understand, but the dynamics of my industry dictates that I make this move.
Such opportunities only come ones' way once in a lifetime. I cannot let this chance pass
me by, for once I find myself in total control of my destiny. These chances wont pass me
by. I ask that you do not destroy my chance, if you will not work with me let me know and
let me move on with my life but do not destroy me. I am a family man and this is an
opportunity to provide them with new opportunities.There is a reward for this project and
it is a task well worth undertaking. I have evaluated the risks and the only risk I have
here is from you refusing to work with me and alerting my bank. I am the only one who
knows of this situation, good fortune has blessed you with a name that has planted you
into the center of relevance in my life.Lets share the blessing.If you find yourself able
to work with me, contact me through this email account If you
give me positive signals, I will initiate this process towards a conclusion. I wish to
inform you that should you contact me via official channels;I will deny knowing you and
about this project. I repeat, I do not want you contacting me through my official phone
lines nor do I want you contacting me through my official email account. Contact me only
through the numbers I will provide for you and also through this email address. I do not
want any direct link between you and me. My official lines are not secure lines as they
are periodically monitored to assess our level of customer care in line with our Total
Quality Management Policy.Please observe this instruction religiously.

Please,again, note I am a family man, I have a wife and children. I send you this mail not
without a measure of fear as to what the consequences, but I know within me that nothing
ventured is nothing gained and that success and riches never come easy or on a platter of
gold. This is the one truth I have learnd from my private banking clients. Do not betray
my confidence.Kindly send your response to my private email address

I await your response.
