Songwriter, record producer, singer, session musician and politician Salvatore Phillip “Sonny” Bono was born on February 16, 1935 and died on January 5, 1998. He came to fame in partnership with his second wife Cher, as the popular singing duo Sonny and Cher.

He was mayor of Palm Springs, California, from 1988 to 1992, and congressman for California’s 44th district from 1995 until his death in 1998 – he was influential in improving copyright laws and the United States Federal Copyright Term Extension Act, which extended the term of copyright by 20 years, is now commonly known as the Sonny Bono Act.

Sonny Bono is of interest to Sue UK readers for his production of “Soul Motion” by his long time friends Don and Dewey, which was released on Sue WI 4032.
