Frank Stallone Featured in Best Ever You

Frank Stallone is featured on the cover and a nice interview in the current issue of Best You Ever which you can read online.  Here are a few tidbits…

I was playing music long before Sly was ever an actor. He was my roadie at one time. When Rocky started shooting, he needed a band that would work cheap to be in one of the scenes. My band, Valentine, was playing at some local clubs and we were the only singers Sly knew.  We were making about $140 total, but the movie was going to pay us $140 each!

A lot of people have just given up on me over the years.  But I’ve had to keep believing in my own talent.

I take care of myself, I stay in shape and I’d rather have people be impressed at how old I am as opposed to them thinking I look old for my age.

I am who I am. I’m kind of a loner, I like to play my guitar, bury myself in a good book, hang out at joints with my boys and I say what I want. I don’t like to hide behind “Hollywood.” I like to interact with people on Facebook and Twitter and I forget sometimes that I’m somewhat of a public figure.

Results In: Sage Died from Heart Disease

On August 30, 2012, the news broke that Sage Stallone died from a heart attack and that he suffered from heart disease.  While this is a tragedy, the fact that many people/sites jumped to the conclusion that illegal drugs were involved only made the situation worse.

I am glad that many sites did follow up with the results that Sage was not involved in drugs and that they didn’t contribute to his death.

Here’s Frank Stallone’s message about the situation.

RIP Sage Stallone. – Craig

Frank Stallone & His Type of KO

On March 1, 2012, the Winnipeg Free Press ran a piece by Rob Williams titled: “This Stallone Prefers to Deliver KO Punch with His Music.”  The article (which is a good one) is, of course, about Frank Stallone.  Here are some tidbits:

  • On focusing on films over music: “I’ve got to say I’m regretful in a sense. I put my music on hold for a bit and started doing a lot of movies then people forgot I was a musician, which bothers me.”
  • On his agents: “…I always had bad management and bad agents… You know how you have people who can make something little into something big? I had people who made something big into something little.”
  • “All of the sudden you’re Rocky’s brother.  At first it was, ‘How’s your brother?’ Now it’s every other person: ‘How’s Rocky?’ It’s not even your brother anymore, it’s Rocky… You kind of disappear, which I wasn’t used to because I was the frontman in rock bands.”
  • “My brother, as famous as he is, would give up almost everything if he could sing. He’s the most frustrated singer in the world.

On March 3, 2012, “Sly’s Little Brother Takes Over the City” by Maureen Scurfield ran in the Winnipeg Free Press.
