Some Beers with Dan & Chris: Chris & Dan Escape From Alcatraz

It took three months to steal all the strings from the prison piano. Another eight weeks to scavenge the remaining footage from eight banjos, four guitars,one ukulele and fourteen pounds of hair from the prison barber’s trash. Chris spent four full nights, on no sleep, braiding the rope.

Dan built a raft boat from his cellmate, Anthony “Overweight Tony” Fatso-Jones. Fatso-Jones was in for tax evasion and cannibalism. He was also very large. With an air-pump built from an old accordion and a paddle made from popsicle sticks the boys were ready to make their break.

As soon as they made it over the wall, Chris and Dan were shot.
