A musician for 35 years, Adam Reuveni worked with Ron Miscavige for over a decade. A member of the religious order for 19 years, Adam is the Music Director for Golden Era Productions. Adam previously worked on Emmy award-winning TV productions and major motion pictures.
I had the unfortunate experience of working with Ron Miscavige every single day for a period of 10 years. After I started working in the Music Department in my early 20s, I soon became Ron’s direct boss. Ron could probably write a whole book about me and the dozens of times he presented his terrible music ideas—and then tried to shift the responsibility for his failures back to me for not “teaching him modern music.” Yet all the while, he refused to study music or do anything to improve his game.
Ron Miscavige made my life totally miserable. I put so much time and effort in trying to get Ron to do well as a musician—I obtained training tutorials for him, books on music, classes, instructors who came out to teach us—and he never learned or improved. It was incredibly frustrating. While I did my best to help Ron, he was secretly working in the opposite direction of trying to fail and make everyone around him fail. I never understood then why it was always so difficult with him and now I realize that he never wanted to learn and was only hellbent on causing trouble.

Ron put up an incredible pretense that he wanted to do honest work. His true motive was belied by his refusal to do the most ordinary actions every musician in the world does to create high-quality music. For example, Ron is the only musician I ever met anywhere who consistently composed music for a film without doing the smallest bit of research on the subject the music was being written for. For example, in April 2009 he was given the simple assignment of writing music for a video about Nashville. Any professional would do a study of Nashville and listen to music from Nashville—but not Ron. Incredibly, after writing a terrible piece of music that was completely inappropriate, he freely admitted that he didn’t listen to a single piece of music from Nashville or study up on it before he worked out his music. This example is all too typical of Ron Miscavige’s unchanging criminal work ethic that was his life.
Ron was prone to noisy complaining about his treatment because he was an
arrogant prima donna.
Throughout the time I worked with Ron, I documented dozens of instances of his immoral actions in detailed reports that show what he was truly up to. I worked with him every day for many years and my wits were continually tried as I attempted to get him on the straight and narrow. Ron was prone to noisy complaining about his treatment because he was an arrogant prima donna. The Scientology Sea Organization is a tough, dedicated group, a religious order that individuals dedicate themselves to of their own free will for the purpose of helping others. While Ron blatantly lies about how he was treated, no other person in the Sea Org was cared for with such an abundance of attention, given paid trips to the Caribbean, paid days off, lavish meals, bonuses, medical care, etc. See the photographs. A picture can’t lie and these pictures clearly show how good Ron had it while he was working at Gold.
When Ron left here in 2012, he said “goodnight” to me as if all was normal. That was the last time I ever saw him—more than four years ago. He drove off in his car (given to him as a birthday present by his children) the next day! This was after Ron had worked as a musician and in the band at Gold every single day of his life for over 20 years. We flew together to various events for years and years and years. We played concerts around the world and had the opportunity to perform with incredible musicians that Ron would never remotely have been able to work with were he not a staff member at Gold. He took advantage of it. Yet, after all that, he just took off without a word? Actually, worse, it was a total betrayal and total cowardice. Ron Miscavige didn’t give a damn about the other musicians or our welfare, let alone his own son and family.

Sadly, several books could be filled with documented stories that reveal Ron’s deception and ill-intentioned actions. I hope this gives a glimpse of the type of person he really is. He cannot be trusted in any way. He’s a traitor and only has his own shortsighted ends in mind, even when it means betraying the musicians he worked with for decades, not to mention his very own flesh and blood.
