Biography | show moreshow less
DINO, DESI & BILLY was little more than a garage band formed by Dean Paul "Dino" Martin and Desi Arnaz, Jr. with classmate Billy Hinsche in 1964. What set them apart wasn't their music but their parents. Dino was the son of Dean Martin and Arnaz was the son of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, and one of their first auditions was for Frank Sinatra. Hinsche was the only teenager in the band, yet Dino, Desi & Billy quickly outsold Sinatra and found themselves opening for the Beach Boys. Their music could be charitably called "uninspired" and heralded bland bubblegum music, but they still manage to hang a hit, 1965's I'm a Fool, on the Billboard Pop Singles chart. Dino, Desi & Billy disbanded in 1970, but Arnaz resurrected it in 1998 as Ricci, Desi and Billy with Dino's brother Ricci.
