The Lovin’ Spoonful’s Jerry Yester Arrested For Child Pornography
Jerry Yester, of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group The Lovin’ Spoonful, was arrested last week in Arkansas for child pornography.
The white pedophile— who played piano on the band’s 1965 hit “Do You Believe in Magic” — was booked Thursday and faces 30 counts of possession of child porn, a spokesman for the Boone County Jail said.
The 74-year-old monster was released on a $35,000 bond that same day.
He was nabbed by the cybercrimes unit at the state attorney general’s office, according to reports.
The disgusting child molester was a session musician when he hit the keys for the band’s most popular song, but a year later, he produced their album “Renaissance.”
He officially joined the band in 1968 to replace guitarist Zal Yanovsky, though his membership was short-lived. The Lovin’ Spoonful disbanded following the departure of founding member John Sebastian, leaving this pedophile on just one album, “Everything Playing.”
The musician also produced Tom Waits’ debut album in 1973.
