Please join us for a very special hour with guest Frank Stallone.
Grammy and Golden Globe nominated artist Frank Stallone is one of the most versatile actors, singers and musicians in the business.
Frank has garnered three Platinum Albums, ten Gold Albums and five Gold Singles and has acted in over 60 films and TV shows.He has written and published over 200 songs and has written and recorded compositions for eight films, including Rocky I, II and III, Rambo II, Paradise Alley and Over the Top. But, it was Frank’s eleven songs that he wrote and recorded for the Saturday Night Fever Sequel Staying Alive that earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Sound Track and a Grammy nomination for Best Original Song with his single, Far From Over.
At a young age, the Maryland-born, Philadelphia-raised native pursued his musical ambitions, forming a series of bands, and finally turned professional at the tender age of 15 (“I had to lie about my age,” admits Frank). His group, Valentine, included lead guitarist John Oates (Hall and Oates) and was signed to RCA Records in 1975, when they recorded their first album. Frank made his on-screen singing debut, performing the self-penned acapella song, Take You Back in the opening scene of the film Rocky. “The only reason I got the part was that I was the only musician my brother, Sylvester, knew…and I worked cheap.”
Frank is a guitar, boxing, music, mafia and art aficionado and is an avid collector of guitars, guns and boxing memorabilia. When he’s not writing songs or filming a project, he can be found on a shooting range or at the gym.
