Sonny Bono Net Worth $15 Million Dollars

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 beginning on the music stage and later on dabbled in dinning before finally settling in politics. Having dropped out of school to support himself, Bono had trouble attempting to get his music heard, under various aliases. Bono’ 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 with a British group called The Searchers, on his own label. In the interim,, himself met Cherilyn Sarkisian, a 16-year old nightclub singer and aspiring actress who would become his wife giving birth to their own daughter in 1964. The couple called the duet, “Sonny & Cher”, recorded the gold-winning hit, “I Got You Babe” in 1965. They enjoyed tremendous success in the upcoming years with hits like “The Beat Goes On”. They starred in movies also, notably “Good Times”, and Bono even composed a musical titled “Chastity”. By the end of the 1960s their popularity was marginally taken away by their difficult 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. Bono’ 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.

Interesting Facts

#Fact
1Singer-entertainer who left show business and found himself in politics. He became mayor of Palm Springs, California and was eventually elected to the U.S. House of Representatives as Congressman from the State of California, a position he held until his death.
2Made weekend visits with Cher to Ralph Helfer's Africa U.S.A. Exotic Animal Ranch in Soledad Canyon, California to pitch in with the chores and to play with the animals.
3He was awarded a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs Walk of Fame on May 18, 1996.
4He was posthumously awarded a Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for Television at 7020 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California on May 15, 1998.
5He was the son of impoverished Sicilian immigrants, who moved to Los Angeles, California when he was seven. After dropping out of high school, he supported himself as a struggling songwriter, waiter, construction worker, truck driver and butcher's assistant.
6Had a reputation for being self-deprecating. Even during his political career, he prided himself on not taking himself -- or being taken -- too seriously.
7Godfather of Anthony Kiedis.
8Biography in: "American National Biography". Supplement 1, pp. 54-55. New York: Oxford University Press, 2002.
9While struggling as a songwriter, he also made deliveries for a local butcher shop. A few music industry people remembered him as the kid who would come in to plug new songs, still wearing a bloodstained butcher's apron, then run out to get back to his route.
10Decided he had had enough of show business the day he was on the set of Fantasy Island (1977), shooting a scene with Hervé Villechaize as Tattoo, and misremembered Tattoo's name. Villechaize flew into a rage, sputtering at Bono, and Bono (as he related later) literally asked himself what the hell was he doing there.
11Became interested in politics rather late in life, when he decided he wanted a bigger sign for the restaurant he had opened in Palm Springs (California) and ran straight into red tape, dealing with the city government. Bono had never voted or registered before, but resolved to change things by running for mayor. He won the election, served a successful four-year term (lending his name and fame to the local economy), and wound up pursuing a whole new career as a politician.
12Half-brother-in-law of Georganne LaPiere.
13Daughter, with Cher, Chaz Bono.
14Daughter, with Donna Rankin, Christy Bono.
15Elected to the United States House of Representatives. [1994]
16Also recorded under the names Sonny Christie, Ronny Sommers and Prince Carter.
17When Fox-TV announced plans to produce an autobiographical movie about Sonny & Cher in 1992, Sonny suggested Kevin Costner to play him and Roseanne Barr Arnold as Cher.
18He acknowledged an illegitimate son, Sean, born in 1964 from an affair with Mireille Machu.
19According to his widow, Bono was addicted to pain killers at the time of his death and was taking up to 20 pills a day. [1998]
20Interred at Desert Memorial Park, Cathedral City, California, USA, section B-35, #294.
