Mini Bio (1)

Grammy and Golden Globe nominated artist Frank Stallone is an actor, singer and musician.

Frank has garnered four Platinum Albums, ten Gold Albums and five Gold Singles and has acted in over 60 films and TV shows including Walker Texas Ranger, multiple sitcoms and variety shows, Hudson Hawk, Staying Alive, Fred Claus, and Tombstone, in which he made a big impact as "Ed Bailey," a dangerous gunslinger. One of his most memorable film roles was as "Eddie," the bartender in Barfly. Frank recently made his online comedy debut with the parody film short "Chupacobra" from Break Media (Break.com), will be seen in the upcoming film Reach Me from director John Herzfeld and will soon be heard as the voice of "Thunderhoof" in Hasbro's hit animated series Transformers.

Frank has written and published over 200 songs and, with a single in the hit film The Expendables 2 (Don't Want to Fight With Me) and three original songs, written and performed by him in the upcoming film Reach Me (Dir. John Herzfeld, 2014), Frank has written and recorded compositions for twelve films. The list includes Rocky I, II and III, Rambo II, Paradise Alley and Over the Top. But, it was Frank's nine 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. That song became a massive #1 hit around the world and stayed on the top charts for more than four months and his songs are still played on radio stations throughout the world.

Stallone is the son of Jackie Stallone (née Labofish), an astrologer, and Frank Stallone, a beautician and hairdresser. His father was an Italian immigrant, and his mother's heritage is half French (from Brittany) and half German. His brother is actor Sylvester Stallone. 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. 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.

Frank has recorded nine solo albums receiving praise from legends Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Sammy Cahn. His rock-influenced Full Circle, was followed by his American songbook albums, In Love in Vain, with Sammy Nestico, Stallone on Stallone by Request, a compilation of Frank's film soundtrack tunes, and Songs from the Saddle, showing Frank's more acoustic side.

Frank is a guitar, music, mafia and art aficionado, is one of the best boxing historians and collectors in the world and is an avid collector of guitars, guns and memorabilia. When he's not writing songs or filming a project, he can be found on a shooting range or at the gym.
