Rudolph Grey is a musician and writer.

As an electric guitarist, Grey has recorded and performed under his own name, as well as leading various ad hoc ensembles called The Blue Humans.[1] His music draws on no wave and free jazz.

Grey is also a motion picture historian and has written Nightmare of Ecstasy (1992), a biography of Ed Wood, the director of notoriously awful films. Tim Burton drew heavily on Nightmare for his film Ed Wood.

In 2001, Grey rediscovered a copy of Ed Wood's final feature-length film, Necromania, which had been presumed to be lost.[2]
