I have read that Pitera gave an interview once.

Anyone know where to find it? Or maybe you have a copy to post on here? I hear he talked in a very high voice. Is this true?

I don't know about any interviews. According to the Carlo biography, Pitera's voice was always more akin to a woman's than a man's-very soft, high pitched and falsetto.

We can all pick on his high pitched voice but i would not be saying to him that's for sure, that fellow was a true psycho.

I saw that awhile ago he was good at martial arts, a lot of mobsters have their flaws and just like any person that has a high profile or status on whatever level is going to be riduculed for every flaw of theirs

I was reading about him yesterday. Sounds like a real sick bastard.

I read an interview with Philip Carlo where he said he tried to work with Pitera early on for the book but gave up for some reason, not sure if that mean he actually intervewed him for it or not. He did say, though, that he was actually frightened after it came out because Pitera and his whole family were pissed at him for digging up all this old stuff. He said the only reason he didn't really care that much was because he already had ALS.

Would be an interesting interview anyway.

It's interesting how in the mob you have some guys who are relatively normal and then guys like Pitera and a whole host of others who are almost serial killer types.

Tommy Karate got an advanced copy of the book and supposedly was not pleased. Carlo was a little worried and reached out to Chuck Zito who was/is a friend with top guys in the Bonanno's including Vinny Basciano and Bruno Indelicato.

Carlo writes about it here.

Anthony senter, chuckie russo joe monty.tommy was shunned by the others. beef over a rat from ny. tommy is a stand up man I consider him a friend ..still talk with once a month when he calls. he is craxy as hell. thinks he is getting out of prison. he is a genious about history , murder weapons ,karate. still in top shape for age ..yoga weights. splits.his voice is weird.its not a womens voice .just different. he is only 5'5 tall..he has eyes like a shark. no emotion behind them...it was a honor meeting them guys..they stood up and took there punishment..no telling.. kept there vows and all doing life..REAL GANGSTERS..and at that time would of been let go..cause nobody had really told yet in the mob

There is a Tommy Pitera prison interview and it was posted on Philip Carlo's website shortly after he died. I was very surprised to see it, There was brief narration by the same women that did the "Iceman" documentary... His voice was not odd at all. I read so much about it in the Carlo book that I expected Michael Jackson's voice to come out of him but it there was nothing unusual about it! then a few weeks later it was taken down and never heard anything else about it. The interview lasted no more that 2 minutes and basicly Tommy said they put him away for life because he kept his mouth shut (which I believe)

Its sad that Philip Carlo passed away. Imagine all the books he would have released in the future? I always loved reading his books.
