Alvin 'Creepy' Karpis

Karpis's fingertips altered to avoid capture

I've been reading up on depression-era gangsters lately--who knows why--but its pretty damn interesting. This fella was Alvin Karpis, he is one of the few Public Enemies to publish a book (and one account of his prison term by another author) . He is also one of the few to survive and spent 26 years in Alcatraz... he taught Charles Manson how to play guitar. All in all he had a pretty crazy life. You definitely should read the wiki on him , I really want to read his autobiography.Oh, check out this interview as well:
