A "singer" (from the Bob Dylan School of Vocalise), drummer, and producer. Half of Sonny and Cher - he used smarts learned at the feet of Phil Spector to fashion a piece of pop history himself. Despite the weird hippie-caveman outfits he wore, he was pretty conservative, even doing anti-drug spots in the midst of 60s peace'n'luv mania. After the divorce from Cher, his TV show flopped. Republican member of US Congress from 1995 until his 1998 skiing death. Trees kill. Just say no.
