Quantcast
Cimbotti obit

JOHN CIAMBOTTI, bassist for the Bay Area ’70s rock band Clover, and for the last two decades a Toluca Lake chiropractor, died last week at age 67, apparently having suffered an abdominal aneurysm following surgery. Clover backed Elvis Costello on his classic debut album, 1977’s My Aim Is True, and Elvis has written a fond, in-depth appreciation of Ciambotti on the News page of his website. “He was a wonderful bass player, songwriter, some-time manager, record producer and all-around great guy,” Costello writes. “The fact that he had also latterly thrived in his second vocation as a chiropractor and in holistic medicine meant that he could jokingly claim to be ‘the Real Dr. John.’” (3/30a)
