There are several prominent men named Stephen Bishop:. The epitaph on Bono's headstone appropriately reads: "The Beat Goes On". Bono's final resting place is Desert Memorial Park in nearby Cathedral City, the same cemetery in which Frank Sinatra was laid to rest later that same year. She continues to champion many of her late husband's causes, including the ongoing fight as how to best save the Salton Sea. His widow Mary was elected to fill his unexpired Congressional term, and has since been re-elected in 1998 and later elections in her own right.
He died of injuries from hitting a tree while skiing at the Heavenly Ski Resort near South Lake Tahoe, California. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich made a public appearance and speech at the shore of the lake on Bono's behalf. He introduced the controversial Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act during his tenure to benefit the music industry and also championed the restoration of the Salton Sea, bringing the giant lake's plight to national attention. Senate in 1992, Bono was elected to the United States House of Representatives in 1994 to represent the 44th Congressional District of California.
After unsuccessfully running for the Republican nomination for U.S. He was instrumental in making the city more business-friendly and in spearheading the creation of the Nortel Palm Springs International Film Festival, now held each year in Bono's memory. With local conservative talk radio host Marshall Gilbert as his campaign manager (and later as the godfather of his two children by his wife Mary), Bono placed a successful bid to become the new mayor of Palm Springs. Bono entered politics after experiencing great frustration with local government bureaucracy in trying to open a restaurant in Palm Springs, California.
The couple had two children, Chesare Elan Bono and Chianna Marie Bono. He became a practicing Scientologist. He played the part of a mad bomber in Airplane: The Sequel. Bono married Susie Coelho and divorced her in 1984; he married again in 1986 to Mary Whitaker. Sonny continued his acting career, doing bit roles in such shows as Fantasy Island and The Love Boat.
They had a daughter, Chastity Bono, and divorced in 1974. But there again, Cher seemed lively and funny, and Sonny a bit slow. Sonny and Cher starred in a popular television variety show, The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour, which ran on CBS from 1971 to 1974. Cher got more attention as a musical talent.
Bono wrote, arranged and produced a number of hit records with singles like "I Got You, Babe" and "The Beat Goes On" though few people knew he did more than sing. 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 began his music career working for the legendary record producer Phil Spector in the early 1960s. Salvatore Phillip "Sonny" Bono (February 16, 1935 – January 5, 1998) was an American record producer, singer, actor, politician, and Catholic whose career spanned over three decades.
