Sonny Bono Net Worth: Sonny Bono was an American recording artist, record producer, actor, restaurateur and politician who had a net worth of $15 million. Born Salvatore Phillip Bono (February 16, 1935 - January 5, 1998) in Detroit, Michigan, he made his start on the music stage and later on dabbled in dinning before eventually settling in politics. Having dropped out of school to support himself, Bono had a hard time trying to get his music heard, under various aliases. He started seriously to deal with music as he got a job as an assistant to legendary producer, Phil Spector. In 1964, Bono saw his first hit 'Needles and Pins' that was recorded by a British band called The Searchers, on his own label. In the meantime, he met Cherilyn Sarkisian, a 16-year old nightclub singer and aspiring actress who would become his wife giving birth to their daughter in 1964. The couple known as the duo, "Sonny & Cher", recorded the gold-winning hit, "I Got You Babe" in 1965. They enjoyed enormous success in the upcoming years with hits like "The Beat Goes On". They starred in movies too, notably "Good Times", and Bono even penned a musical titled "Chastity". By the end of the 1960s their popularity was slightly taken away by their hard stand on drugs. Still performing as a night-club double-act, the two appeared in their own CBS 'Sonny and Cher' shows up to 1974. Following a futile attempt at a solo career, Bono set up a restaurant, called 'Bono', in Hollywood, which was followed by other openings in Texas and Palm Springs. Showing interest in local politics, Bono got elected as Republican Mayor of Palm Springs. Hugely popular, he made it into Congress in 1994, despite allegations of fraud, after an unsuccessful Senate bid in 1991. He made the headlines for being openly against and attacking same-sex love liasions, despite his own daughter being a lesbian. Sonny Bono died while skiing near Lake Tahoe in Nevada, in 1998.
Salvatore Phillip "Sonny" Bono (/??bo??no??/; February 16, 1935 ??? January 5, 1998) was an American recording artist, record producer, actor, and politician whose career spanned over three decades.


Sonny Bono was born in Detroit to Italian immigrants Santo Bono (born in Montelepre, Palermo, Italy) and Zena "Jean" La Valle. Sonny was the youngest of three siblings; he had two older sisters, Fran and Betty. Bono attended Inglewood High School in Inglewood, California, but did not graduate.
Bono began his music career working at Specialty Records where his song "Things You Do to Me" was recorded by Sam Cooke, and went on to work for the record producer Phil Spector in the early 1960s as a promotion man, percussionist and "gofer". One of his earliest songwriting efforts was "Needles and Pins" which he co-wrote with Jack Nitzsche, another member of Spector's production team. Later in the same decade, he achieved commercial success, along with his then-wife Cher, as part of the singing duo Sonny and Cher. Bono wrote, arranged, and produced a number of hit records with singles like "I Got You Babe" and "The Beat Goes On", although Cher received more attention as a performer. He also played a major part in Cher's early solo career with recordings such as "Bang Bang" and "You Better Sit Down Kids".
Bono co-wrote the song "She Said Yeah", which was covered by The Rolling Stones on their 1965 LP "December's Children (And Everybody's)" Bono also recorded as a solo artist under the name of Sonny. He had only one hit single as a solo artist, "Laugh At Me". "Laugh At Me" was released in 1965 and peaked at number 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. In live concerts, Bono would sing the song with an introduction of, "I'd like to sing a medley of my hit." His only other single as a solo artist was a follow-up release, "The Revolution Kind", which reached number 70 on the Billboard Hot 100 later that same year. Bono also recorded an unsuccessful Sonny album titled Inner Vie
