Original Motion Picture Score

30th Anniversary Edition

Music Composed and Conducted by BILL CONTI


“Sly, let me introduce you to Bill Conti...” I think I nodded and began to scratch my chin as I inspected Mr. Bill Conti. He was young. Thin. Acutely intense. Detached. Dark. Black eyes dwelling deep into his skull. Something serpentlike in his mannerisms... When I wrote the script for ROCKYTM, I wanted passion music. I wanted a symphony of powerful men, ... of lonely women. ... of thick-necked losers. ... of human ships that crash in the night. ... of love. ... of courage. ... of dignity cast in bronze. I only wished the music could come from inside me, but I was born with ears of stone. Bill Conti shook everyone’s hand and walked out the door... Three weeks later, Bill Conti walked in the door with music under his arm. The music began. I was sweating. I am impossible to satisfy, I thought. I was cheering !!! How did this thin man with an Afghan dog seize the soul of every character and set it to music !? Then it dawned on me. Simple. How could I not have known at our first meeting that he was brilliant? ... Bill Conti is Italian.
