Frank P. Stallone, Jr. (born July 30, 1950) is an Americanmarker actor, singer/guitarist and Golden Globe and Grammy Award-nominated songwriter. He is the brother of Sylvester Stallone. He has appeared in many Hollywoodmarker films and television.

Biography

Stallone was born in New York City, New Yorkmarker, the son of Jacqueline "Jackie" Stallone.(née Labofish), an astrologer, former dancer, and promoter of women's wrestling, and Frank Stallone, Sr., a hairdresser. Stallone Sr.'s father was an immigrant from Gioia del Collemarker (province of Barimarker, Apuliamarker, Italymarker).

In his teen years he went to Lincoln High School in Northeast Philadelphia, PA. Stallone has worked as a singer in the tradition of American big band jazz and popular music, in a vocal style reminiscent of his idol Frank Sinatra. He tours with his own orchestra under conductor Paul Vesco, and has also worked with conductors Sammy Nestico and Billy May. Stallone has released a number of albums, including Day In Day Out with Sammy Nestico (1991; A1 Records: FSTCD1) and "Close Your Eyes" with Billy May (1996; Coolnote).

Stallone wrote and performed "Far From Over" for the 1983 film Staying Alive. The song peaked at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his only major pop hit. The song was nominated for a Golden Globe award for Best Original Song from a Motion Picture and a Grammy Award for Best Album of Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or Television Special.

A self-titled album soon followed from RSO, in the style of 1980s pop. In May 1984, Stallone peaked at #81 with the song "Darlin'."

Stallone was also used as a punchline by Norm Macdonald on Saturday Night Live's Weekend Update, often inserting Stallone's name into the end of news stories in a ridiculing manner. One example would be rhetorically asking the audience who was responsible for some sort of adverse event or circumstance, "...you guessed it: Frank Stallone." Another example, "The most popular toy of 1996: 'Tickle Me Elmo'. And the least popular toy of 1996, you guessed it: 'Tickle Me Frank Stallone'."
