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.

The Fan To Fan (F2F) podcast with hosts Bernie Gonzalez, Peter Charbonneau and Doug Ziegler takes a simple idea and does it well. Each episode of F2F features a conversation between fans. The subject could be movies, comics, TV, video games, toys, cartoons, or anything pop culture! Bernie, Peter and Doug pick a fan with a love and/or knowledge of the episode’s topic and then do a deep dive.
Recently, the F2F team spoke with me about Sly Stallone. When I was approached to be a guest, I explained that there are Stallone fans with greater knowledge and bigger collections than mine. Still, they were interested in how I became a Stallone fan, the creation of StalloneZone and more. I was already a fan of Bernie’s Midnight Mystery, so I checked out F2F and became a fan of it as well.
Talking to Bernie, Pete and Doug was a blast. It was truly fans hanging out. Here’s part one of the conversation. I hope you enjoy it half as much as I did.
