Ok, some of these comments are riduculous. So because Sly Stallone was famous and wealthy, he should be babysitting his 30 year old son just in case something may happen to him?! Wealthy addicts seem to be viewed as ok, because of the pressure, lifestyle, etc, but yet when a crackhead from the street dies, he was a junky who deserved it. Sylvester is supposed to just say "hey, the only way I'm giving you any money is if you call me twice a day, and if I see you 4 to 5 X a day? Y'all sound like a bunch of poor asses..quit hating on the rich people.

Any time a father out lives his son, it is a tragedy. I don't care the reason, overdose or not. His father and the whole family must be in a state of shock. My condolences to you Sly and your family.

SAGE STALLONE was "Zombie Like" during recent photo shoot at his Hollywood Hills home.
Dave Cash was the Production Assistant on a photo shoot for Girls and Corpses Magazine that had recently taken place at Sage Stallone's Hollywood Hills home. I can tell you that the start of our shoot was delayed by how long it took him to respond to any request. It took him about 30 minutes for him to open up the gate just to let us in. I had to remind him via the speaker box at the gate more then one time to allow us entry, I think he may of actually forgot we were there after the first time I asked him to let us in. Then it took an other 15 minutes to answer the front door and allow me entry to the pool area where we had planed the photo shoot that day. His death however untimely comes as no surprise to me based on his Zombie like behavior that day. I got the feeling I was talking to some one stuck in a "time warp" he was surrounded with electronic technology that appeared to be from from the 1970s, 8 track tape players, Instamatic cameras, dial radios etc. His conversation often leading off into an other direction at random. Sage was a nice guy, but just seemed very out of it. In fact as we wrapped the shoot, and got in the car to go home, the first words Robert Rhine (editor, Girls & Corpses Magazine) and I said to each other was, "did you notice how out of it sage was?" I often work with the magazine, I own GraveRides Hearse Tours. GraveRides offers tours of the dark side of Hollywood including many places the famous have met there demise. Guess I will have to be adding this stop to the tour! - Dave Cash www.GraveRides.com - www.facebook.com/GraveRides
