Floyd is the pianist for the Blue Moon Gypsies. Eventually he leaves the Gypsies when they sign with Black Fat Records and start touring nationally.
- "Floyd was my pianist, older than anyone else in the band by a decade and a half. Floyd was married to Emily, had a steady day job, two kids in college and could play and sing Billy Joel’s “And So It Goes” so beautifully that if you didn’t at least tear up, you had to be made of stone." - Ashley, Kristen (2011-11-13). Rock Chick Reckoning (Kindle Locations 488-489). "
- "Floyd had thick head of gray hair he kept fashioned in a greased back ‘50s pompadour. He was mostly thin but sported a slight beer belly, wore glasses rimmed in black like Buddy Holly’s, had a quick grin, a sweet chuckle and long-fingered hands that were magic on a piano keyboard. His sense of contentment for life, family and music glittered around him like an aura. He drew people because he was kind. That kindness was etched into him physically, in the wrinkles around his bright, dancing, hazel eyes and the grooves around his mouth. Floyd was just the kind of person you wanted to know." - Ashley, Kristen (2011-11-13). 'Rock Chick Reckoning (Kindle Locations 3277-3293).
