Not so many people would have guessed that the famous Rocky Balboa actor Sylvester Stallone has a brother who equally pulls his weight around and has earned his bragging rights without hiding under his brother's shadow.

Frank Stallone, the younger son of astrologer Jacqueline Stallone, is a famous guitarist, actor, and musician renowned for the artistic versatility that has earned him both Grammy nomination for Best Original Song and Golden Globe nomination for Best Soundtrack.

Although his career as an actor might not make similar waves as his brother's, Frank is equally a successful actor featuring in over 60 movies and TV shows, including the 1993 hit movie "Tombstone."

Frank gained remarkable success following his role as Ed Bailey in the film. Frank acted in the 1987 movie "Barfly," where he portrayed the character of a bartender.

The 70-year-old has worked closely with his older brother Stallone, recording the songs used for his movies "Rocky I, II, and III," and "Rambo II."

Frank's "Far From Over," which he wrote for the 1983 film "Staying Alive," written and directed by his older brother, was a global hit, staying at the top of musical charts for months.

Frank knows what it takes to get the crowd off their seats and has gotten legends such as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Sammy Cahn singing his praises. Speaking on how his song "Take You Back in" got to feature in "Rocky," Frank said,

"The only reason I got the part was that I was the only musician my brother, Sylvester, knew…and I worked cheap."

The actor's excuse for never being married is simply because he forgot, and no one can doubt him if he did forget, especially when he has the best of theatres and concert halls scrambling to have him perform in their concert.

Frank has many hobbies added to his busy routine to keep him away from "love." Asides being an actor, a singer, and a guitarist, he is also a boxing enthusiast, appearing as a guest in boxing shows and even having a boxing match with television reporter Geraldo Rivera which he won.

His passion for the sport saw him appear as a contestant on Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling. Frank recently announced that his mother Jacqueline passed on earlier this week in her sleep. Taking to his Facebook, he said his mother was a remarkable woman.

The versatile entertainer said she lived through difficult moments such as World War II and the great depression. The Stallone family sure has lots of fond memories of their mum to hold on to as they bid goodbye to their mum.
