Een van de meest iconische zangers ooit, Frank Sinatra, is (niet voor het eerst) gelinkt aan de Colombiaanse drugsbaron Pablo Escobar. Dit keer is het zijn bloedeigen zoon die een boekje opendoet. De twee zouden namelijk zakenpartners zijn geweest.

‘I can tell you that Sinatra was a better cocaine dealer than a singer. He was one of the partners always spoke about.’ – aldus zoon Sebastian Marroquin.

‘There are more singers than you can imagine that began their careers thanks to the sponsorship of drug traffickers. There are no receipts, just words. I know because I was very close to my father and he and his partners always spoke about that.’

‘Drug cartels only exist below Mexico’s border with the United States. Where is the Miami cartel? Or the New York cartel? Who is the head of the Chicago or Los Angeles cartels? Each kilo of cocaine that enters the United States is converted into eight with the help of poison. There’s a great amount of hypocrisy when it comes to drugs.’

Er gaan meerdere verhalen de ronde. Zo zou Sinatra toen hij erachter kwam wie Escobar echt was direct het contact hebben verbroken. In elk geval: het blijven interessante verhalen die Escobar’s nabestaande vertelt. Al is al heel zijn leven bezig excuses aan te bieden voor wie zijn vader was.
