In his new book, “Diggin’ Elroy” (published by Xlibris), author Walt Griffin writes about the life and story of a famous rockabilly legend. In this entertaining work of fiction, it shares how family members and a close friend of this music icon put their reputations, jobs and lives on the line to expose who took part in the biggest hoax of the century.
Readers follow the story of Elroy Gibby, a.k.a the “King of Bling,” a music legend who is loved and admired not only for his talents, but also because of his killer swagger and style. Elroy is persuaded by “the powers that be” to fake his death in order to magnify his stardom in history, save the record company from bankruptcy and renew his relationship with his glamorous wife. When nephews Pug and Shuck and a close friend named Bo have good reason to doubt his death, they secretly begin digging to find out if Elroy is inside the tomb that has his name on it.
Hilarious and refreshing, “Diggin’ Elroy” takes readers on a knee-slapping, rib-tickling adventure as this tragicomedy strives to make them laugh, cry and rejoice as the trio does whatever they can to bring back the “King of Bling.”
