Alt: Ronnie Tutt

In Memory Of Ronnie Tutt

I’m very sad to hear of the death of Ronnie Tutt.

He played on the original recording of ‘Piano Man’ in 1973 and most of the other songs on that album.

Ron was a power drummer who also played with finesse. His timing was impeccable and he played his drum parts to the lyrics, as well as the music in any song he played on. His live performances with Elvis Presley were legendary.

He will be greatly missed.
