Johnny Fuller
Birth: Apr. 20, 1929
Edwards
Hinds County
Mississippi, USA
Death: May 20, 1985
Oakland
Alameda County
California, USA

Johnny Fuller was born in Edwards, Mississippi, but moved to Vallejo, California with his parents as a young child. As a child, he taught himself to play guitar and by his teenage years, he formed a gospel group known as the "Gold West Gospel Singers." By the early 1950's, he began recording for the Heritage Record label in Oakland, California. During this time, he taught himself to play the piano and the organ. As the 1950's progressed, Fuller toured the United States with various rock and roll acts, as well as with numerous pop acts, such as Paul Anka and Frankie Avalon. While touring with these acts, he found time to record for the Aladdin and Rhythm Record labels. During the 1960's, he toured Europe and continued touring throughout the United States. By the 1970's, however, Fuller was limited to performing in local venues around the Oakland, California area. Fuller continued performing in the Oakland area during the 1980's until his death from vascular disease at the age of 56. (bio by: Sugar Dap Willie)
