Phil Z from "Warlocks Rising" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Phil Z was born and raised in a West Virginia "holler," an Appalachian backwoods village. His fascination for the motorcycle world can be traced back to when he was six and a group of 40 bikers were living nearby. Soon after, his mother would move in with a Hells Angels member.

His mother would later remarry a military man whose career path would take Phil Z through 17 different schools by the time he graduated.

By the age of 15 he was racing street bikes and selling pot. He bought his first Harley at 16, having to keep it hidden from his parents.

In 1988, he and Big John, now National Boss, started probating together for the Warlocks. Phil Z was patched a couple months later. In 1991, he got busted in the big "funeral" take down by the ATF. He was eventually charged with prostitution, running guns, racketeering, drugs and was facing 102 years in prison. He took a leave from the chapter, enrolled in school, and got a job. His girlfriend at the time got pregnant so he decided to marry her, partly because he thought it would look good in front of the judge. He was eventually sentenced to 10 months in a halfway house.

He would be in and out of trouble over the next 16 years, including, at one time, being simultaneously on federal probation, state probation and county probation for separate crimes.

Phil Z is a National Regional Vice President, his region being all Southern States.

Phil Z describes himself as a ladies man and if he doesn't have a woman on his arm it's because he doesn't want one at the time. He has three ex-wives and is currently separated from his fourth.

Phil Z is an avid surfer and will ride his bike standing on the seat at 80 mph.
