Frank Stallone and the music

Frank Stallone

I’ve known about Frank Stallone for some years. But…I just thought he was the older brother to Sylvester Stallone and was an actor in a couple of B-movies. A sibling that cashing in on his more famous siblings’ Success. There are other examples of it or course. And I do emphasize that this might not be their intent. They’re basically not as successful as there siblings. I don’t claim that they willingly cash in on another person’s fame just because they’re related. On the contrary, I think it would be a real curse to be compared to a more famous relative, sibling or parent or whatever. Thet’s my prejudice for you.

I recently found out that Frank Stallone is really a musician though. It started with a youtube clip about Frank getting a guitar from his brother Sly. In this clip, Franks plays and sings a bit and I realized that I must dive deeper into this. So I go to Spotify and search for his albums. There are quite a few there and I start to listen. The first one is very good and I think I recognize a couple of the songs. I’m wondering why I never listened to Frank Stallone before? Was it my prejudice?

It probably was. Even when I started to listen my thought was that Sylvester had helped his brother to a career in music. But that idea soon faded. There’s no doubt in my mind that Frank has built his own musical career. Of the albums I listened to I cannot say that there’s only one style either. Sometimes it sounds kinda like the Beatles while some of the albums are most in the tradition of Frank Sinatra. For me, I think these albums are the best and very soothing listening experience. I really like it a lot. And I kept listening until there were no more albums left on Spotify.

I grief that I haven’t discovered Frank Stallone earlier because I like his music a lot. He is a great singer! How much of the production and/or songwriting that is his I don’t know. I’m not sure I even want to speculate. But as I wrote, in the beginning, he’s absolutely a guitar player to be recognized. Not a shredder by any means and maybe not a virtuous. But a stable guy to perform songs while playing the guitar. If he’s a multi-instrumentalist or a songwriter is beside the point I think.
