Hank III & David Allan Coe - The Outlaw Ways
“Chocolate George” Hendricks was a member of the San Francisco chapter of the Hell’s Angels during the 1960s. He was the favorite Hell’s Angel among the hippies in Haight-Ashbury, because he was funny, friendly and kind to those in the Haight. He earned his nickname, “Chocolate George”, because he was always seen drinking chocolate milk.
On August 24, 1967, as the Summer of Love was winding down, Chocolate George was riding his motorcycle on Haight Street when as he was making a turn, his bike caught the bumper of the car in front of him, throwing him from his bike. He later died at the hospital. His death not only hit his biker brothers hard, but also the Haight-Ashbury community as a whole.
Five days later, over 200 Hell’s Angels and other bikers led a funeral procession for Charles George Hendricks from the Haight - south through the streets of San Francisco - to Cypress Lawn Cemetery in Colma. The Angels then headed to Golden Gate Park where they were joined by 300 hippies from the Haight and held a party in honor of Chocolate George. The Grateful Dead - George’s favorite band - and Big Brother & the Holding Company played at the Golden Gate Park party.
Asked why they were partying, ‘Hairy Henry’ Kot, Chocolate George’s best friend said, “George loved be-ins and happenings, so we thought we’d have a happening just for him.”
