Mark 'Chopper' Read, one of Australia's most notorious criminals, became a household name following the cult classic Eric Bana film Chopper, based on his infamous antics.
The criminal-cum-celebrity died on Wednesday afternoon after losing his battle with liver cancer, his manager Andrew Parisi announced.
We look back on his greatest quotes in the controversial film:
- Never let the truth get in the way of a good yarn
- I'm just a bloody normal bloke. A normal bloke who likes a bit of torture.
- Jimmy........ if ya keep stabbing me, ya gunna kill me right?
- No, I did not drive him to the hospital! Do I look like Mother Teresa to you?
- He couldn't knock the fluff off a cappuccino.
- I used to be Chopper Read. Now I can't even get arrested in this bloody town.
- Even Beethoven had his critics. See if you can name three of them.
- [after viciously stabbing Keithy George multiple times in the face and neck] I think I put me shoulder out.
- Beethoven had his critic's too Keithie.... see if you can name 3 of 'em
- Why would I shoot a bloke, then carry him to the bloody car and wizz him off to the hospital at a hundred miles an hour? It defeats the purpose of having shot him in the first place
