  1. I never liked Cher. She's too openly slutty. Sonny Bono took care of her. She was a nobody when he meet her. He wrote her first hits and he had to be next to her in the studio to help her sing, because she was stage fright. And even though he was not a singer, their first song became a hit. He made her. She was young and didn't know how to keep a man happy so he wouldn't have to go look for what he didn't find at home. So, Cher, you have nobody to blame but yourself for his escapes

  2. Sonny Bono led a life that was incredible. Like someone said he had great highs and great lows. In my book he was even more accomplished than Cher. He never gave up, and never let anything stand in the way of what he wanted to do. He was a hardworking man, that was greatly underestimated. A unlikely to succeed kind of guy. He Is A Great Example for The Man And Woman That isn't like the ideal. He was loved by so many it's incredible how a guy that I saw on Ed Sullivan singing I got you babe with Cher had A former president at his funeral

  3. I just loved Sonny. I will always remember driving out to Palm Springs for a weekend with friends and saw a Cadillac on the 10 driven by an older gray-haired couple with a bumper sticker emblazoned with "Sonny Bono for US Congress." A truly unique, highly accomplished and special man. He is missed.
