When Alan Schultz met David Dictor as a freshman at the University of Tampa in 1973, it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship. After some highly questionable youthful hijinks, they would meet up again eight years later in Austin, Texas, to form the punk bank that would become known as MDC, Millions of Dead Cops. In this scorching memoir, written behind bars in San Quentin while serving time for drug dealing, the drummer known as "Al Schvitz" recounts, with both humor and horror, MDC's triumphs and disappointments while narrating the nonstop challenges of being incarcerated in California's most infamous prison. After more than 40 years of friendship, Al Schvitz and Dave Dictor continue to bring the punk message of social justice throughout the world, spreading their chant of "No Trump! No KKK! No Fascist USA!" as founding members of MDC.
