Billy Hayes â??The Real Midnight Expressâ? Exclusive Interview

Some people have lived, and some people have lived…Billy Hayes has lived. In 1977 he told the world about his escape from a Turkish prison in his co-authored autobiographical book, “The Midnight Express”, and in 1978 Hollywood told the world his story in the Oscar Award-Winning film by the same name. However, due to legal reasons, Billy was never able to tell his full story…until now.

I had the chance to sit down with him for an interview and I have to say he’s one interesting guy. Moreover, his story is much different than what’s been released previously. The movie portrayed the Turks in a negative light which Hayes didn’t approve of. He loves both Turkey the country and the people very much…it’s prison he didn’t care for. Now, over 30 years after his return home, he’s able to set the record straight on a few things. Check out my below interview and/or transcript to see what I mean.
