Johnny Desmond's ultra-smooth vocals earned him the nickname of "The Creamer." He enjoyed success in Detroit during the 1930s before forming a foursome known as the Downbeats, which joined Bob Crosby's band, the Bob-O-Links. Desmond joined Gene Krupa's band as a lead singer in 1941, later worked with Glenn Miller's Air Force Band, and was known as "The G.I. Sinatra." He later was a featured member of Don McNeill's Breakfast Club in Chicago and recorded for RCA, Coral, and MGM. He was also featured on '50s television staples [RoviLink="VW"]Hit Parade and [RoviLink="VW"]Face the Music. ~ Ron WynnPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
