9. Sonny Bono

Sonny Bono set sail on The Love Boat in 1979. He had already established a successful music career by that point, as a solo artist and songwriter as well as performing with his wife, Cher. The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour was a variety staple on 1970s TV. The couple continued performing together even after they divorced, and last sang “I Got You Babe” together on Late Night with David Letterman on November 13, 1987. Sony Bono became the mayor of Palm Springs and then a California Congressman, but sadly passed away in a skiing accident in 1998.
