Adam Floyd is simply one of the strongest skaters I've ever seen. While I claim no expertise in judging skating, Adam's a joy to watch. As Nintendo he was channelled, focussed, determined to win. His skating is always so smooth and secure, and his tricks always so impressive he never failed to get a round of applause! Understudying Flat-top was a natural character progression, he had a licence to play around far more than a National engine could, and as a Rocky his skating skills more than made up for the fact he is not a natural Rocky type.
On the UK tour Adam played Prince of Wales, which somewhat jarred - Princey is a bumbling fool, always late and malfunctioning, but performed by one of the strongest skaters in the cast, and performing flawless backflips - intentionally! There was logic behind this casting - as Princey get scrapped before the races start, Adam had plenty of time to double as Trax 2, a second stunt skater/Track Marshall along with Matt King the blader for all the race scenes.
Now Adam is joining the 2006 Bochum Starlight Express cast, where he will really be able to stretch his wheels on the huge set as Espresso. I personally can't wait to get out to see him and the new cast!

Adam was in the boy-band E-Male, along with Julian Essex-Spurrier, Chris Copeland, Jason Pennycooke, and Paul Aloysius, who were all in Starlight Express at the time. The band performed on skates, of course, and each band member had their own "E-name". If I remember correctly, Adam was "E-zee"? E-male were before their time - their simple happy pop music came into fashion a couple of years after their single was released and was not hugely successful. However, all I have in reference to this band is a video clip of an interview and performance of their single "We Are E-Male". If anyone can donate more info I'd love to add it here - the world needs to remember this group!
