The Lovin’ Spoonful’s Jerry Yester arrested for child porn

Jerry Yester, of Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group The Lovin’ Spoonful, was arrested this week in Arkansas for child pornography.

Yester — who played piano on the band’s 1965 hit “Do You Believe in Magic” — was booked Thursday and currently faces 30 counts of possession of child porn, a spokesman from the Boone County Jail told the Daily News.

The 74-year-old musician was released on a $ 35,000 bond that same day.

He was nabbed by the Cyber Crimes Unit at the Attorney General’s Office, according to TMZ.

Yester 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 Yester on just one album, “Everything Playing.”

The musician also produced Tom Waits’ debut album in 1973.
