Pretty Boy Floyd drummer Ben Graves reportedly collapses on stage and leaves in ambulance
Sad news as Pretty Boy Floyd drummer Ben Graves reportedly had a seizure while performing with the band at Herman’s Hideaway in Denver, Colorado, USA on or about June 2, 2017 causing him to have to be hospitalized. The news appears to have first been reported by Metal Sludge who stated in part in its article:
“The band were reported to be on their 4th song when Graves stood up and just collapsed.
One online blog from a fan reads; “Last night in Denver drummer Ben Graves collapsed during the show from an apparant seizure & had to be taken away in an ambulance. Hoping he’s doing ok as Ive hung out with Ben & he’s a real good dude.””

Pretty Boy Floyd guitarist Kristy Majors had some choice words in that regard lumping Sleaze Roxx (who had yet to report on it) at the same time. The following message was posted on Majors‘ Facebook page about six hours ago:
“Ben is a private person . Please be respectful to him and his family . Don’t be an ass like some trashy websites like metal slud or sleaze cocks etc….. and report fake news , as Donald trump would say … thanks”
Sleaze Roxx attended the 2016 edition of Rock N Skull in Joliet, Illinois, USA from October 28 to 30, 2016 and ranked Pretty Boy Floyd‘s performance at the festival (including the Pre-Party on October 27, 2017) as sixth best out of the 31 performances. Sleaze Roxx stated with respect to Pretty Boy Floyd: “Glam metal rockers confirm reputation as great live act.”
Sleaze Roxx wishes Graves a speedy recovery.
