Episode Summary

Sonny Bono
This episode covers the singer/actor/comedian turned politician, best known for his association (both on and off stage) with Cher. Although Sonny couldn't read music, he wrote some classic songs. Shooting to fame after hooking up with then-16 Cher, the couple became household names. Their TV teasing became all too real bickering, and after they divorced, she went on to bigger stardom. Sonny regrouped, however, to open his own restaurant, and become mayor of Palm Springs. Tragically, he lost his life in a skiing accident, just six days before this episode aired.moreless
