When Elvis Presley made his musical return after his 1968 Comeback Special, he would tour with his TCB Band named after his catchphrase Takin’ Care of Business. His drummer during the 1970s was Ronnie Tutt, who has sadly died this week aged 83. Graceland paid tribute to The King’s drummer through their social media accounts.

Graceland’s statement read: “All of us with Elvis Presley Enterprises were deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Ronnie Tutt.

“In addition to being a legendary drummer, he was a good friend to many of us here at Graceland.

“We enjoyed each time he joined us here to celebrate Elvis Week, Elvis’ Birthday and many other special occasions.

“Ronnie was an amazing 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.”
