Sly and the Family Stallone News for the Week

Sly and the Family Stallone News for the Week:

Two Vintage INTERVIEW Interviews with Sly Stallone!

As I was going through the Zablo vault I came across the October 1994 issue of Interview magazine.  The photo header is NOT that cover.  Instead the picture above is of the September 1985 issue of Interview.  Let me explain.

As I was going through the vault, I found my copy of the October ’94 issue.  In it there is a new (for that time) interview with Sly Stallone.  But instead of a new photo, they reprinted the cover of the September ’85 issue. Well, as it turns out, you can read that interview here.  (By the way, I love the cover art of Sly,)

Getting back to the Interview October 1994 issue.  Below is that interview. Click on the photos to see a larger version, Enjoy! – Craig
PS – The thing that really struck me about the interview below is the question about Sly always having a sense of mortality.  Even then Sly new that time was our greatest currency.
