Al Capone was the undisputed king of the Chicago underworld, from the early 1920’s, till he was marched off to prison for income tax invasion in 1931; Unfortunately there is no know recording of Big Al speaking, as with many famous people of that era, but all we have is many photos, since Scarface was not camera shy. The bizarre thing for me about Al was. When he was at the zenith of his power in the mid 1920’s; He was only in his mid twenties, and when he was released from prison in 1939; Al Capone was only 40 years old , and dying just a week after his 48th birthday in 1947

Al Capone assumed command of the south side gang in 1925
