I just learned today that Dr. John Ciambotti has passed on. He was my chiropractor for years, but so much more. He was the bassist in the underground, influential band Clover
, who became Elvis Costello'
s back-up band on My Aim Is True
, Huey Lewis
' band (Had songwriting credit on a song or two on Huey Lewis album Sports
), he played and managed Lucinda Williams
, played with John Prine
, turned down the Rolling Stones
when Bill Wyman
left the band, had stories of hanging with just about everybody in Rock & Roll.
He helped a lot of musicians in LA with repetitive motion problems, I benefited greatly from him and know many who have. We always shot the shit at our appointments and talked shop". He was way into playing upright bass again. My heart goes out to his family.
Dr. John will be sorely missed.
