54 years ago today, the world got to meet the badass that became Sons of Anarchy’s very own Happy Lowman – that’s right, on this day in 1964, David Labrava was born! Despite having been raised in Europe, he was born in Miami, FL. Best known for his role as Happy, he is also a real life Hell’s Angel and a motorcycle enthusiast, as well as a writer and tattoo artist.
Have you ever wondered exactly who the SAMCRO First 9 members were? We know that John Teller (Victor Newmark/Nicholas Guest) and Piermont “Piney” Winston (William Lucking) founded SAMCRO in 1967 following their service as paratroopers in the Vietnam War, and we also know that former Club President Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman) was also a First 9 member, but can we list off who the other Redwood Originals were? Today, we’re making a list of all of the original SAMCRO guys, so stay tuned. WARNING: Some spoilers are contained below.
As a fan of Theo Rossi (Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz, Sons of Anarchy) – which of his characters do you prefer? Do you like Juice from Sons of Anarchy or Shades from Luke Cage better? What role do you think Theo blends into the best? Don’t get us wrong, Juice was badass in and of himself (well, he at least had his moments), but Shades is all around badass. So we guess the question is, which character is more badass? Theo answered the question himself, and we’ll be sharing that with you today.

If you kept up with the very recent New York Film Festival (NYFF) 2016, then you know Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy) and the Lost City of Z crew made highly anticipated appearances at the event – some both on and off the big screen – as the film had its first world premiere at the festival on its closing night. The premiere lineup at NYFF also included films The 13th and 20th Century Women.
So, it’s been a while since we did a #TBT (Throwback Thursday) post, and a special member of our Jax/Charlie Hunnam Fanatics Group (you know who you are – thank you!) shared this sweet Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller, Sons of Anarchy) #TBT vid with us this morning, and we just have to pass it along to all of you SOA Fanatics. It still amazes us how much Charlie has grown and changed over the years!
We don’t know about you, but we could totally use some more Tommy Flanagan (Filip “Chibs” Telford, Sons of Anarchy) in our lives. That’s why today we’re sharing a fan-made tribute video of Tommy, and when we say you need to see it, we totally mean it. It’s a video photo collage of the beautiful Scot, and the music that YouTuber ByrnePerfection chose to overlay into it is total perfection.
If you’ve been searching for all of the ways to make your Halloween go Sons of Anarchy, then look no further, because right here at SOA Fanatic, we’re going to be giving you all the ways to do just that. Today, we’ve found a badass makeup and Halloween costume tutorial geared at the classic biker Sons of Anarchy style that we all want to achieve. Uploaded by YouTuber Makenna Smith, this tutorial will give the ladies all the tips and tricks possible to do yourself up right for a Sons of Anarchy themed Halloween look.
If you’re a Sons of Anarchy fan that has also been watching ‘Fear The Walking Dead‘, the ‘Walking Dead‘ prequel show set in a zombie-ravaged Los Angeles, CA, you already know that one Sons of Anarchy star holds one of the major roles of the show. Kim Dickens, who portrayed the mommy-fetish escort queen Colette Jane in Sons of Anarchy portrays Madison Clark in Fear The Walking Dead, and one of her old Sons of Anarchy co-stars is now joining the cast.
You guys loved this so much last year, that we seriously couldn’t say no to doing it again this year! Seriously, Halloween is almost here, and we’re on a mission to have as much fun with the Holiday as possible! What better way to do that than to involve our favorite guys and gals from SAMCRO?
So, you guys will be totally proud of me – I got a friend, who had never watched Sons of Anarchy – to not only watch, but marathon all 7 seasons of the show. He made it through in record time (I think he beat me and I did it in 2 weeks), and one very important debate has stirred between the two of us as a result. Where is Tig (Trager, Kim Coates)’s Men of Mayhem patch? Everyone else has one, so why doesn’t he?
This is seriously one of the most ridiculous things we have seen lately. A man is innocently pumping gas into his car, when suddenly another man approaches him and begins to berate him for wearing a Sons of Anarchy leather vest. As Sons of Anarchy fans, we tend to enjoy wearing the merchandise we can get our hands on, and we are fully aware of how awesome having a vest is – even if it is a knock-off – so this exchange we’re sharing with you today is totally going to blow your mind.
It’s October, SOA Fanatics! Do you know what that means? Halloween 2016 is right around the corner, less than a month away, and we’re soon to become your Sons of Anarchy Halloween Headquarters! We’re kicking it off right this year, with 10 seriously badass Sons of Anarchy Jack-O-Lanterns! These are some of the coolest Jack-O-Lanterns we’ve ever seen, and we don’t doubt that we also shared them last year, but that’s ok!
Did you know that Sons of Anarchy’s Drea De Matteo (Wendy Case) hosts her very own reality show? It’s called The Muthaship and showcases the very best of Drea and her life. Within the show, we can get an exclusive behind the scenes look at Drea, her family, and what she calls her “Motley Crew”. The Muthaship began just a week before Sons of Anarchy ended, and today we have the very first episode to share with you.
The Burquenos have a lot to talk about on this fine Monday, after we received a big visit from Sons of Anarchy’s Kim Coates (Alexander “Tig” Trager) this past weekend. Kim, who is currently filiming in nearby Santa Fe, NM, visited Albuquerque, NM, The Duke City, and lead the Reaper Run Motorcycle Awareness ride from Duke City Harley Davidson to Thunderbird Harley Davidson in the city. He threw a VIP party after the ride, and we have an exclusive participant interview as well as photos and video from the event.

If you’re a Facebook follower of Danny Trejo (Romeo Parada, Sons of Anarchy), then you already know that he’s a bold, opinionated, politically charged person, and in no way does he hide that fact. He uses his Facebook page to promote serious political discussions, and allows for his fans to debate among one another. Given this election period, there’s been mass discussions on his page about the election, and we’ve now learned that he’s created a hilarious line of t-shirts, all politically charged, of course.
Evan and Ryder Londo are the pair of identical twins that made Sons of Anarchy’s Abel Teller the young, twisted up son of Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), Tara Knowles-Teller (Maggie Siff), and Wendy Case (Drea De Matteo). They are the sole reason that Gemma Teller-Morrow (Katey Sagal)’s storyline wrapped up the way it did, and the primary link between several characters on the show.
If you are both a fan of Sons of Anarchy and a fan of the Grand Theft Auto video games, then we’re about to make your day. As a fan of both, have you ever wished you could combine the worlds of SAMCRO and GTA into one, big, mayhem filled world? If so, then you’ll be anxiously awaiting the release of Grand Theft Auto 5, which is doing just that. Honestly, Grand Theft Auto is the Sons of Anarchy of the video gaming industry, is it not?
Sons of Anarchy’s Tommy Flanagan (Filip “Chibs” Telford) has definitely been showing us his musical side lately, after his cameo in KoRn’s latest music video “Rotting In Vain”, and now the news that he’ll be singing along to The Ballad Of Lefty Brown here in the near future.

The new western movie of 2016, Written by Matt Williams and Dan Benamor and directed by Terry Miles, is named Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story, tells the story of a retired outlaw who can’t seem to run from his past. The movie, which features Sons of Anarchy’s Kim Coates (Alexander “Tig” Trager) and country singer Trace Adkins is a gripping tale of the age old story between the outlaw and the law man.

He wants to see the good in everything and everyone, and the webisode we’re sharing today totally epitomizes that.

We’ve watched a lot of the #22Kill/#22PushUpChallenge videos lately, and most of them are brief and right to the point. Except for one – Kurt Sutter (Executive Producer/Otto Delaney, Sons of Anarchy)’s Day 6 challenge video. Not only does Muddy, Kurt’s super cute chocolate lab puppy, help him complete his pushup (with kisses of course!) but wife Katey Sagal (Gemma Teller-Morrow, Sons of Anarchy) also joins in on the challenge video, encouraging Muddy to help her daddy. Muddy has grown a lot since we first met her (see related article below), and we’re so thrilled to see how much she loves Kurt and Katey!
You know, and you know that you do, that the mugshots for each and every member of SAMCRO were proudly displayed on the wall at the Teller-Morrow Clubhouse in Sons of Anarchy. As the series went on, some portraits on the SAMCRO member wall did change, however, members known to have always had their mugshots displayed are Piney Winston (William Lucking), Clay Morrow (Ron Perlman), John Teller (Nicholas Guest/Victor Newmark), Jax Teller (Charlie Hunnam), Chibs Telford (Tommy Flanagan), Tig Trager (Kim Coates), Bobby Munson (Mark Boone Jr.), Otto Delaney (Kurt Sutter), and Juan Carlos “Juice” Ortiz (Theo Rossi).
Maggie Siff (Tara Knowles-Teller, Sons of Anarchy) is tearing it up lately, between her new baby (awwe) and her newfound success with Showtimes’s ‘Billions‘ as Wendy Rhoades.

Posing with ‘Billions‘ co-star Paul Giamatti (Chuck Rhoades, Billions), Maggie just oozes sensuality in the magazine spread.

So far, nearly all of Sons of Anarchy’s cast members have accepted to join the #22kill/#22pushupchallenge, and David Labrava, who portrayed Happy Lowman on the hit biker drama, is the newest out of the bunch. Nominated by Kim Coates (Alexander “Tig” Trager), we think he’s the only one so far not called out on Twitter to do it by Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller). The challenge is to perform 22 pushups for 22 days to promote the fact that 22 Veterans per day in America take their own lives.
Sons of Anarchy star Kim Coates (Alexander “Tig” Trager) is yet another to be nominated by Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax” Teller) to join the #22kill/#22pushupchallenge to raise awareness for Veteran suicide in America. The challenge is to perform 22 pushups for 22 days to promote the fact that 22 Veterans per day in America take their own lives.
What? Come again? Oh yeah, Sons of Anarchy Executive Producer Kurt Sutter responded to Charlie Hunnam (Jackson “Jax’ Teller) publicly calling him out on Twitter by posting a video response, in which he says “F*ck you, Hunnam”, and it’s quite literally for the best reason ever. You won’t believe just why Kurt is passing the sentiment along to the 7-year face of Sons of Anarchy.
For anyone who thinks artist Britney Spears is a has-been is in for one hell of a surprise. The 34 year old singer made her return to the big stage with a vengeance at the 2016 MTV VMA Awards, looking flawless as she totally slayed the hot performance. After she was introduced by icon Kim Kardashian, she emerged from behind a silk screen in a revealing bodysuit – sheer except for a few well placed yellow embellishments.
We all remember him best for his role as Willy Wonka in the 1971 Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory. Gene Wilder was an actor who shaped much of our movie and television history – with roles in Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Something Wilder, and Will & Grace – he was a household staple and comedy icon. News has broken that he has passed away at the age of 83. He will be sorely missed.
