In 1953, at the age of 20 years old, Billy was alive when actress and comedian Lucille Ball gave birth to Desi Arnaz, Jr on January 19th. On the same day on "I Love Lucy", the fictional Little Ricky was born as well. Baby Desi graced the cover of the first TV Guide magazine with a headline that read ""Lucy's $50,000,000 baby" - because the commercial revenue from his birth was expected to be that amount.

In 1965, he was 32 years old when on March 8th, the first US combat troops arrived in Vietnam. The 3500 Marines joined 23,000 "advisors" already in South Vietnam. By the end of the year, 190,000 American soldiers were in the country.

In 1992, at the age of 59 years old, Billy was alive when on April 29th, riots began in Los Angeles after the "Rodney King" verdict was issued.

Their acquittal sparked a 6 day riot in Los Angeles.
