When they divorced in 1975, Cher claimed "involuntary servitude." Sonny claimed "loss of business opportunities." The innocence was gone...

Entertaining and sizzlingly candid, And The Beat Goes On takes us from Sonny's days as a meat delivery boy pitching songs door-to-door on Hollywood's Sunset Strip to his shocking first date with Cher...from their first nightclub act as "Caesar and Cleo" to their overnight success with "I Got You Babe." It's all here in this no-holds-barred memoir that reveals Sonny and Cher's roller coaster ride to superstardom, their fast-track years in the limelight, the dark downturn into divorce and the eventual upswing that culminated in Sonny's triumphant Palm Springs mayoral campaign. From the high times with Jackie Kennedy and the Rolling Stones to losing it all in a bad movie deal, Sonny Bono's story is the dramatic saga of a man who lives the American dream—who's gotten knocked down countless times and gets up to win again and again.

Very entertaining and sincere. Although he claims to be untalented, he was a great songwriter and evidently a darn good book writer as well. Sorry that he is gone. Read full review
