Sonny and Cher

Sonny Bono was never a hippie and Cher really wasn't either. Sonny was, in fact, a clever producer/songwriter and a bit of a marketing genius who molded teenaged Cherilyn into the other half of THE royal hippie couple of the least in the public's eyes. This 16 Mag piece from January of '66 is surprisingly open and accurate about the couple so I suspect they may have actually written it themselves.

  1. Spot on, sir.. I greatly admired Sonny's intellect and media savvy.

    He was BRILLIANT, so underrated.

    Cher said it best at his funeral service when she said he could live with the jokes about him because HE WROTE THEM.

    He is so very much missed. Great Post..!!
