Ronnie McMurphy lived most of his life in Norman Oklahoma. He graduated from Norman High School in 1975. Ronnie loved to enjoy & play music - music was his passion! He played in several local bands starting in 1974 with "Crystal". Ronnie "Fingers" McMurphy also played in "The Bluescasters" & "Full Circle". In high school Ronnie could play any lead break by Led Zeppelin, ZZ Top, the Stones, Alvin Lee, whoever Note-for-Note! As time went on his own style developed that took it further.

Around 1990, Ronnie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. A few years later he was no longer able to play in a band. On August 27th 1998, complications from the MS took his life at 40 years of age. Ronnie's spirit & memory lives on.
