Rudy "Tutti" Grayzell (born in Saspamco, Texas on June 8, 1933) is a Rockabilly musician.

He was born Rudolph Paiz Jimenez, and took his stage-name from his German great-grandmother. He first formed "The Buckles", which became "Texas Kool Kats" and a popular local group. He also had a daily radio show in 1957.[1]These groups were country-oriented, but he moved toward a more rockabilly sound with "Let's Get Wild" or "Duck Tail." In the 1950s he toured with Elvis Presley.[2] He is an inductee of the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.[3]

His chief mainstream contribution has been as "celebrity spokesman" for Pine Brothers Softish Throat Drops, sporting a wild pompadour wig, much jewelry and a pasted-on thatch of chest hair.
