Notoriously slammed by the critics, Dino, Desi and Billy still enjoyed success from 1965 to 1970. Dino, the son of Dean Martin, Desi, the son of Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball, and Billy Hintsche a friend from school, produced several albums, had two top 40 hits, and toured with groups including the Beach Boys, Paul Revere and the Raiders and the Mamas and Papas. They scored their two biggest hits before anyone in the group was fifteen years old. Today they are mostly forgotten, including today’s #25 hit from 1965, “Not the Lovin’ Kind”.
