Below is a video ad (made for Google Ads) I made for the Ronnie Fuller biography, “I Will Sing My Songs Again,” by his son Jason Fuller.
About Ronnie and the book:
I’ll Sing My Songs Again is the biography of Ronnie Besaw Fuller, who grew up in a tiny, poor American Indian community in Northeastern Wisconsin. He was sick for much of his youth, and the only real interest he had was playing the guitar and singing. Realizing the extraordinary talent that Ronnie had, his father took him to talent contests around the area. In 1953, at the age of seven, he performed on television, and that was before they even had one for their home. Ronnie performed with many bands around the Midwest and in 1969, while in Las Vegas, an important person heard two of his recordings. Ronnie signed a seven-year contract to perform on-stage as a musician.
In 1976, Ronnie was diagnosed with Ankylasing Spondylitis. He returned to Wisconsin to deal with it. Doctors told him that he had about five years to live. He began treatment at a nearby clinic. For nearly ten years he was given an enormous amount of medications. The last several years the pill count got up to 80 pills per day. Then, after he crashed, they took him off of the medications without a detox program. In 1992, he filed a 50 million-dollar lawsuit for medical malpractice. The way the court case was handled is unprecedented and unbelievable for a court case that was handled in the United States of America. What happened to Ronnie Besaw Fuller should never happen to anyone else in this country During his 27 years of disability, Ronnie Fuller has recorded 35 songs and has written another 124 songs that are still to be recorded. His latest CD, “Message From America” is getting a lot of attention. Many people in the business believe Ronnie is one of the best songwriters of his time.
