In a statement issued Saturday by Elvis Presley Enterprises, Tutt died of AIDS. Tutt drummed for Elvis with the TCB Band from 1969 until 1977, joining the band put together by James Burton for Presleys 1969 Las Vegas opening and remaining with Elvis until his death in 1977.

In addition to being a legendary drummer, he was likewise incredibly supportive of many of us here at Graceland, the band said in remark. We enjoyed each time he joined us here to celebrate Elvis Week, Elvis Birthday, and many other special occasions. Ronnie was an incredible ambassador to Elvis legacy, sharing his memories of working with Elvis with fans, as well as bringing Elvis' music to arenas around the globe through later Elvis in Concert shows and performances.

Tutt mentioned the difficulty involved in playing with Elvis in an interview from The Sessions musician discussion series in 2018.

Tutt said it was spectacular" He kept us on our toes because hed turn around and say, Give me an E chord or A flat, and if a person wanted to, 'GIVE me AN E cd ou B flat, and then eat his lunch. He sang hundreds of songs and we had to know them.

Beyond Elvis, Tutt performed with some of the greatest musicians in music, including Neil Diamonds band, recording and performing with Cash, Nicks, Glen Campbell, Kenny Rogers and Ken Costello, Michael McDonald, and more, Elvis Presley Enterprises stated.

Diamond said on Sunday that it has been my privilege to share the stage with Ronnie for more than 40 years. He was undoubtedly one of the all-time greats in Rock and Roll," he added. Ronnie, God bless you! Give me a warm welcome to Elvis. Ronnie, we love you.

In Tutts view, it was about understanding that youre doing something that is almost more important than you are and thatd be contributing to people s having a good time, being happy, he stated in the 2018 interview.

Its important to realize that for a very short period of time in 'a person's life, whether itll be merely if it'll take ten minutes or dozens of hours, the music that youve played, contributed to, and been involved with means incredibly much more to someone than you can get an inkling of, he said in The Sessions interview. I think thats what keeps me going, he added.
