Blues Musician. A native of Jonesboro, Georgia, he had taught himself to play a homemade musical instrument by the age of 5. When he was about 10 years old, Fuller ran away from home, making his way to Atlanta, Georgia. After playing music in Atlanta for a short time, he became a hobo and made his way to California, eventually settling there. In 1924, he appeared as an extra in the movie "The Thief of Bagdad." He appeared as an extra in several other films throughout the remainder of the 1920's. He performed in numerous musical venues throughout the 1930's and the 1940's while simultaneously working at various non-musical jobs such as being a shipyard worker. By the 1960's, he was recording for the Bluewville Record label and touring throughout the United States, making appearances at various blues and jazz festivals. In 1971, he appeared in the film, "Roots of American Music: Country and Urban Music." Fuller continued performing until his death from heart disease at the age of 79. (bio by: Adam Maroney)
