John Ciambotti

He anchored the renowned Bay Area band Clover (which featured a pre-News Huey Lewis) and Declan McManus' watershed bow My Aim Is True (1977). 

An in-demand session ace with Lucinda Williams (Lucinda Williams, Sweet Old World, Car Wheels on a Gravel Road), John Prine, Nick Lowe, Norton Buffalo, Carlene Carter, and Jim Lauderdale, to cite a few, the late John Ciambotti plied his craft working the supportive pocket and emerging as a melodic foil with a warm, resonant tone.

Attraction Bruce Thomas had to play John's lines as does Imposter Davey Faragher whenever Elvis renders a song from his debut - that's how vital John's work remains. Following his music career, John Ciambotti healed musicians as a specialized chiropractor.
