Hey pallies, likes this is the saddest of sad days in our Dino's history. On this day, March 21, in the year 1987 our Dino's most beloved boypallie Dino Jr. crashed
his National Guard fighter jet in the mountains of Cali when he came upon a bad snowstorm. Dino-followers are of one mind that once our Dino's namesake died, a huge part of our beloved Dino died as well that fateful day.
Below is an outstandin' tribute to Dino Jr. by the pallies at "The Music's Over." We thanks them of rememberin' our Dino's boypallie's life and times in this very honorin' way that includes a vid trib to Dino Jr.'s band adventure, "Dino, Desi, and Billy" singin' one of their grooviest tunes, "The Rebel Kind."

Dean Paul Martin
November 17, 1951 – March 21, 1987
To many, Dean Paul Martin was best known as Dean Martin’s son, but to music fans he was Dino of Dino, Desi and Billy. The Desi being Desi Arnaz Jr. Forming the group in their early teens, DD&B had a couple of semi hits that targeted the teenage girl crowd. As he grew older, Dino became Dean Paul and went on to make a name for himself playing tennis. He even played Wimbledon. Flying was yet another passion of Martin’s. He got his pilot’s license at just 16 and later earned his wings with the Air National Guard. Then in 1987, Martin was flying his National Guard fighter jet when a bad snowstorm caused him to crash it in the mountains for California, killing him and his Weapons System Officer on impact. He was once married to Olympic ice skater, Dorothy Hammill and actress Olivia Hussey.
