Jimmy Dorsey Facts
He met his wife in 1924.

Jimmy and Tommy Dorsey formed The Dorsey Brothers Orchestra in 1930. Tommy, the more temperamental one, is usually blamed for igniting the longstanding feud that broke them up in 1935. Apparently an argument erupted over the tempo of one of their songs, which led to Tommy storming out. They appeared together in one film in 1947, but did not reunite their bands until 1953. The final years of their lives were spent co-hosting a musical variety show, which introduced Elvis Presley to TV for the first time (he sang "Heartbreak Hotel").

His wife was Miss Detroit of 1925.
