    Summary

    Bog King works in his grandfather's appliance store by day and plays drums in the basement by night. It's not a glamourous life, but he's content, for the most part. Then Roland James and Sunny Lawrence ask him to fill in for their drummer in a talent show, and suddenly he's part of a band that's rocketing towards stardom.
    There's a few complications, of course. His grandfather doesn't approve. His girlfriend dumps him. He doesn't like Roland.
    And he really likes Roland's girlfriend, Marianne Faye.
