Pretty Boy Floyd aka Tommy Floyd

since circa 1988
This Canadian hard rock band released an EP and an LP, both named Bullets & Lipstik. The LP's album cover strongly resembles the album cover of the 38 Special album Rockin' into the Night.

They were most successful in the United Kingdom, where Bullets & Lipstik was a Top 10 hit on the indie charts in 1988.

The Canadian Pretty Boy Floyd got into a legal battle with the American Pretty Boy Floyd. The Canadians owned the rights to the name, but could not proceed legally as the American Pretty Boy Floyd had filed for the American trademark. It should be noted that the American PBF could not use the name "Pretty Boy Floyd" on the Karate Kid III soundtrack and was forced to use the acronym "PBF". When The US band was signed to MCA Records, Kerrang magazine mistakenly printed the Canadian PBF picture with the heading "Floyd Signs To MCA".[citation needed] The band renamed itself Tommy Floyd (after the lead singer) following the departure of guitarist Pete Parker. Tommy Floyd added two guitars and retained the original PBF rhythm section for a short period prior to regrouping with a new solo line up.

Singer/songwriter and founder Tommy Floyd went on to launch the music management company Outlaw Entertainment International, working with members of Salty Dog, Dangerous Toys and Celtic Frost. Outlaw Recordings helped former PBF guitarist Pete Parker in the launching of his blues-based trio, Billy Butcher.

Guitarist Pete Parker (aka Billy Butcher), sang lead vocals as well as playing guitar. Butcher released the album Penny Dreadful. Drummer Sandy Hazard was later in the band Grandma Moses, which released the album Too Little Too Late. Hazard is now in the pop punk band Mcrackins. Quote from Wikipedia
