I have been searching for years for memorabilia from the Aku Aku to no avail. Although I haven't ever found any merchandise, I have heard some neat stories, but nothing really new compared to what is posted here. To say that Slick had some mob ties would be a severe understatement. From the rumors I have heard, every kind of back-alley crime you wanted to get involved in was happening there- prostitution, running numbers, anything you could think of. It was a major front between Detroit and Cleveland, conveniently located within 10 minutes of a major port.
I have been trying to find out how Slick was associated with the Stardust in Vegas. He was born and bred in Toledo, so I would love to see the connection. I am assuming some sort of mob tie?!
Rumor is that he was also actually pretty well acquainted with the Sinatra family.
