Born in Santiago, Cuba on the 2nd March 1917, and helping to create one of the most famous dance crazes to date with his participation in the Latin Music world, Desi Arnaz went from cleaning canary cages to gracing the Hollywood stage in “Too Many Girls”. He tied the knot with the firey red head that was Lucille Ball. This lead to the production of the hilarious “I Love Lucy” shows. When the shows ended in 1951 the pair divorced and Desi wrote an autobiography, using his full imagination when coming up with the title…”A Book”. It was rumoured that people conga’d into shops to get the books off of the shelf. (No? Well I would have!)
