If any SZoners attend, we’d love to see photos and a report. You know it will be a great way to send out the old year and welcome in the new! – Craig

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.
On September 7, 2012, Fox News.com posted an interview with Frank who spoke about the recent deaths of Sage and Toni-Ann, how the Stallone family has pulled together and the healing power of music. – Craig
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.
RIP Sage Stallone. – Craig

Most SZoners already know that Frank loves to interact with fans. Now that he’s getting more comfortable with technology, things are only going to get better. In addition to his site and blog, Frank can be found on Facebook, Twitter and performing live! – Craig

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.
