Desi Arnaz played the bandleading, club-owning, Cuban husband of that crazy, stupid, pathetic, conniving, self-destructing redhead, Lucille Ball, in the classic 1951-1957 sitcom, I Love Lucy. He was too good for her, if you ask me. Ricky, a talented conga drummer and arranger, owned the Tropicana Club, later the Babalu Club, where his talentless harridan of a wife kept scheming to get into the show. Weird Al Yankovic produced a 1991 CD of some of the songs from the show.
