First, there is an archived magazine article from 1978, titled: ‘TOURING ROCK STARS GO TO AL DELLENTASH WHEN THEY REALLY WANT TO GET HIGH.’ The headline is a clever joke, you see, because the story is about his multi-million-dollar private jet-leasing business, which he built in his twenties: “Among the acts that have chartered Dellentash’s three Convairs, two helicopters and a Boeing 707 are the Rolling Stones, KISS and the Grateful Dead.” The next hit told me Dellentash was moonlighting as a wingman for two of history’s most deadly criminal organizations, flying Pablo Escobar’s drugs from Colombia to the Gambino crime family in New York.
His mile-high empire was a front for the most rock ’n’ roll drug smuggling ring in history.
Also not included was the killing of three Muslim students in North Carolina earlier this year.
The shooter was a neighbor and had strong opinions about religion.
There was also the married couple in Las Vegas who walked into a pizza shop and murdered two police officers.
They left a swastika on one of the bodies before killing a third person in a Wal-Mart parking lot.
