I have seen Pretty Boy Floyd a few times over the years, and while I have always enjoyed seeing them live, I always felt that the band was pretty much the Steve Summers show.
At M3, When Pretty Boy Floyd took the stage, I was pleased to see Kristy “Krash” Majors back in the band playing guitar. The band also has Ben Graves from Dope & The Murderdolls playing drums. Needless to say, Pretty Boy Floyd kicked ass, and was one of the better acts on stage two at M3. The whole band sounded great. I loved hearing those classic tunes from Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz live again!! Hopefully Pretty Boy Floyd will play some more east coast shows in the near future. I would like to see them play, when they can play a longer set.

It is hard for me to believe that is has almost been 20 years since Pretty Boy Floyd’s debut, Leather Boyz with Electric Toyz. It has been a long time since I listened to this disc, as I only picked up a copy of this CD, only recently. I once owned a copy of this on cassette tape, but that tape bit the dust a long time ago.
I somewhat recall the band having a sound similar to Motley Crue, but aside from the title track, I could not remember much of the album.
Steve Stevens vocals do remind me of Vince Neil’s vocals from the Too Fast For Love album, but I believe the style of music is a little closer to Poison than Motley Crue. I don’t think Pretty Boy Floyd is as good as either of those two bands. I did enjoy their songs, Rock & Roll, the Motley Crue Cover, Toast of the Town, and the title track, Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz, but aside from that, I found this to be fairly standard stuff. This is a CD for hair/glam metal fans only.
Pretty Boy Floyd will reunite for the Rocklahoma Music Festival on Saturday July 12th. If you are looking for a copy of Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz, prior to the show, you can purchase the CD at this link.
