|Editors note: How many people know that Sly Stallone, ROCKY, railed against criminal politicians, bankers, and 'foreign enemies' destroying our country!!? NO ONE reported on this. Freakin outstanding- the most underreported (non-reported) story of 2010. Even I didnt know all the things he said until I went back to his twitter account (http://twitter.com/TheSlyStallone) and read it all in its entirety. Great stuff. In our celebrity obsessed culture, Stallone's remarks should definitely get some play.|
On Saturday July 21, Sylvester Stallone and family laid to rest his son Sage, at St. Martin of Tours Catholic Church in Brentwood, CA. Sage was 36 years old when he died on July 13th. He was reportedly found by his housekeeper. I express my sincere condolences to Sylvester Stallone and his family over the tragic loss of their son. May his soul rest in peace.
Stallone's official website, sylvesterstallone.com posted a message on July 14th along with a photo of his late son:
Sage Stallone (1976-2012)
It is with the greatest sadness that we report the passing of Sage Stallone. Sylvester Stallone is devastated and grief-stricken over the sudden loss of his son. His compassion and thoughts are with Sage's mother, Sasha. Sage was a very talented and wonderful young man. His loss will be felt forever. We would like to thank the visitors to this site for their many messages and emails. Please continue to leave messages of sympathy in the comments section of this post. Thank you for respecting the privacy of the Stallone family at this time."
Stallone is one actor I've always liked. I became a fan in 1979 with the release of Rocky II, which was my all time favorite-ever movie when I was a kid. It struck a cord with me and millions of others. Not only was it a blockbuster feel-good film about an Italian Catholic, (which I related to being a half-Italian Catholic kid) but it conveyed a poignant theme of hope and redemption- a marvelous story of the likeable struggling underdog.
When I saw the movie, I liked it so much that I bought all the memorabilia associated with the film: The Rocky II soundtrack on vinyl, the t-shirt, the book, & the poster. As a matter of fact, I still have the soundtrack on CD and ironically got it out a few weeks ago to listen in the car. It's a wonderfully inspiring collection of music by Bill Conti. Stallone himself even made reference to the insipring nature of the music in a twitter post on October 20, 2010, noting "Still healing getting stronger. Maybe I better keep listening to "Gonna Fly Now" in my head." The following track, OVERTURE, is one of my favorites from the Rocky II soundtrack:
As the years went on after Rocky II, I went and saw every subsequent Rocky film as it came out in theatres with my dad. It became sort of a family tradition; my favorites were Rocky II, III and IV. Not only was Rocky a great boxing movie, but his fighting spirit was representative of the relentless determination of the American resolve. The making of the film alone illustrated how sticking to ones convictions without compromise can pay off. One of the very first webpages I created on the internet in 1997 was a Rocky Balboa tribute page, which included the following information:
Only one week prior to his son's death, on July 7th at 1:25PM Stallone posted a message on twitter (https://twitter.com/TheSlyStallone), writing: "I am ROCKY so I always root for the underdog, even though he rarely ever wins... I wish everyone could feel like a CHAMPION ONCE........"
Stallone's public comments about American politics are not too well known. As revealed below, Stallone is not only a Hollywood superstar and cultural icon, but he is actually a very politically aware person and one to watch. In November 2010, popwatch noted that Stallone and actor Charlie Sheen were friends. Stallone had posted a series of comments on twitter about a Halloween double date with Bruce Willis and their wives, followed by a visit to see Sheen at home. Sheen, an outspoken 9/11 truth advocate, spoke at Alex Jones 911 truth symposium in Los Angeles in 2006. I had the pleasure of attending that event and it was one to remember.
Bruce Willis himself has also boldly challenged the establishment by publicly scoffing at the official JFK assassination fable, featured in a June 2007 Vanity Fair article: "I'll get killed for saying this, but I'm pretty sure those guys are still in power, in some form. The entire government of the United States was co-opted." [See also: Bruce Willis Says JFK Killers Still In Power and Michelle Malkin's Neo-Con Blog Fears Bruce Willis Now 9/11 Truther.]
