    He spent 10 years in prison for extortion (1962-71).
    Much like Joe Colombo, he discovered the Mafia really does not like the limelight.
    He inspired one of Bob Dylan's worst songs, 'Joey' (1976).

    After the release of 'The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight,' he became an unlikely Hollywood celebrity and best friends with actor Jerry Orbach.
