Graylin Brown is the tender heartwarming story of William Bell, an African-American entertainer who was cut down in his prime by Multiple Sclerosis. The story spans from Detroit, Michigan 1965, to Hollywood, California, in the early 90's. After the onset of the disease in 1965, William went into a nine-year remission always worried about the possibility of a relapse.
Along the way William nurtured his oldest son, Randy, who at an early age showed an inherited musical talent. After graduating from college, Randy went West to California and a successful career in show business. He promised his father that whenever he achieved enough success to be a guest on the Johnny Carson Tonight Show equivalent, the fictional Ziggy Bright Show, he would fly his father and his father's two best friends to California, where they could be right there with him on the show.
