Pretty Boy Floyd Frontman Announces Guitarist For Solo Project
September 30, 2014
Steve Summers, the voice of glam metal band Pretty Boy Floyd, has announced the guitarist for his upcoming solo record and new project.
Up and coming guitar sensation Billy Hudson, from Sao Paulo, Brazil (who has toured and recorded with members of Megadeth, Savatage, Circle ll Circle, Trans Siberian Orchestra, and Firewind), is currently recording and writing for both of Summers’ projects and will join the singer for a string of solo shows beginning in February 2105 and running through the summer.
“We (Summers and Pretty Boy Floyd guitarist Aeriel Stiles) wrote some songs that were more in a style for a new project because I’m actually working on two different projects right now,” Summers recently told Metal Sludge. “There is the Steve Summers project, which is what we should do, and I’ve already booked the show February 28 in Germany going out as Steve Summers (the voice of Pretty Boy Floyd), but there is also another project, something I’ve been working on for a while, and this one is completely different.”
Summer promises his second project won’t be alternative by saying, “”No, no, not alternative. Never that, but more how this guy plays, the new guitar player, his style of writing, which is more modern, and I’d love to get more into this in time, with a new band name and new band concept and that whole thing, but it’s not ready. I’m still defining it and refining it. You know, we could even re-define Steve Summers stuff, but I’m not going to invent something new. Just have more fun, a newer thing that starts as a baby, and that’s going to take a lot of work putting that together. I mean, with Pretty Boy Floyd, when I was still with Pretty Boy Floyd, I knew it wasn’t going to last forever as far as income and our fanbase.”
Steve Summers and Pretty Boy Floyd hit the rock world in 1989 with there debut record ‘Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz’ on MCA records. The band reached the Billboard Top 200 chart and peaked at #130 with two modest underground hits in “Rock N Roll (Is Gonna Set The Night On Fire) and the ballad “I Wanna Be With You” and continued to put out records and tour the world until their hiatus in 2012.
