Rocker worked lifetime of magic
Lovin' Spoonful guitarist dies at 58
Zal YANOVSKY ran noted restaurant
Nicolaas VAN RIJN Staff Reporter
Zal YANOVSKY believed in magic.
As a member of the Lovin' Spoonful it got him his first big hit, the 1960s "Do You Believe in Magic," which helped put the group second only to the Beatles in record sales for a while.
And, after the music died, it got him to Kingston, where the man known as the Jewish version of Ringo Starr -- for his resemblance to the Beatles drummer -- started a restaurant, Chez Piggy, that is known across the land for its fare and welcoming atmosphere as a meeting place.
"He had an unorthodox style of playing, to say the least," said Denny DOHERTY of the Mamas and Papas, who was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame with YANOVSKY in 1996. "There was not any book anywhere that he followed.
"And he is gone too soon."
YANOVSKY, 58, died suddenly at his farm home just outside Kingston Friday of a heart attack.
Survivors include his wife Rose RICHARDSON, his daughter Zoe, 2-year-old grand_son Max, a sister Buba and his first wife, the actor Jackie BURROUGHS. A private family service will be held Monday in Kingston.
Kingston Mayor Isabel TURNER, who said she was "shocked" to hear of the death of the man she'd casually greet on the city's streets, hailed him as "a part of the very fabric of our community.''
"He took a very old building, went in and not only cleaned it all up, but brought it back to its former glory," she said of the work YANOVSKY and his wife Rose put into restoring an 1880s livery stable for their Chez Piggy.
"He was one of the first to do that, and because of it, others looked at what he had done and followed suit, with the result being that quite a renovation has taken place in downtown Kingston."
To recognize their work, TURNER said, the couple was last year recognized with a heritage restoration award.
"He had a really wonderful life in Kingston," said Toronto writer Marni JACKSON, who used to work at YANOVSKY's first Kingston restaurant, the lakeshore Dr. Bull's, making cappuccinos.
"He's a heart guy, the guy at the heart of Kingston. He and his wife Rose were really crucial in restoring Kingston's downtown and keeping the tourist economy kicking along because Chez Piggy's was really the city's first gathering place."
Born in Toronto, YANOVSKY dropped out of Downsview Collegiate at age 16 to begin the peripatetic lifestyle that marked his early days.
"I was late the second day of school," YANOVSKY recalled in an interview. "They wouldn't let me in school 'cause I didn't have all my books. I never really went back to get 'em. I guess I really didn't want to get back to school."
Since he'd just learned to play the guitar a year before, YANOVSKY turned to the stage, working "the Toronto coffee houses with a cat named Roy GURAL," he recalled. "Then I worked in a coffee house in Kitchener and then I packed it in and went to Israel," where he worked on a kibbutz.
But, DOHERTY recalled, YANOVSKY didn't last long.
"He was fired because he'd driven a Caterpillar tractor through a building. He was trying to help his people rebuild the country, not tear it down, but... So they said 'You'll do better in Tel Aviv,' and he tried busking in Tel Aviv, but it didn't go, so he came back to Toronto."
For the next year he survived by sleeping in an all-night coin laundry at the corner of Dupont and St. George Sts., busking, playing coffee houses and swiping milk bottles off front porches in his neighbourhood.
"I used to steal milk bottles, sell them to the candy store and get deposit money," YANOVSKY once confessed. "Listen, I needed the dough, so I mooched around a lot. I still got a lot of debts to pay when I get back, but I wasn't very original with the milk bottles -- and my technique was not very lucrative."
Longtime friend Larry ZOLF, in a 1966 interview, laughed "I remember Zal from the days he was so poor he was claimed as a tax exemption by 27 people. I remember Zal in the days when he was so dirty he was condemned as unfit for human habitation by the Toronto Board of Control."
YANOVSKY finally caught a break when DOHERTY, then with a group named The Halifax Three, asked him to come aboard, and for a while it was The Halifax Three Plus One.
"He played lead blues, kind of a single string picking, when I met him in 1961," DOHERTY recalled.
"Zal had been into rhythm and blues, and folk music. Our gig paid him a couple of hundred bucks a week, and we toured a lot, so through that he met other musicians and started hanging around New York.
After a stretch playing with Doherty in Washington's Georgetown district, YANOVSKY returned to New York where he teamed up with John SEBASTIAN who wanted to put together a group.
The result was the Lovin' Spoonful, with SEBASTIAN on guitar, harmonica and autoharp, Steve BOONE on bass and piano, Joe BUTLER on drums and YANOVSKY on guitar.
The group was so impressive so quickly that it and DOHERTY's Mammas and Pappas were hailed by Time magazine in the mid-1960s as the two top groups in America.
The band's reputation soared as "Do You Believe in Magic" took over the charts, and for several years the Spoonful had a loyal and fanatic following. But by 1967 YANOVSKY was ready for other challenges.
A clash with San Francisco police over marijuana contributed to his decision, Friends say.
"I left because I don't want to compromise any more," he said. "I want to be completely responsible for myself. I want to make decisions for myself."
With the cash settlement he received from the Spoonful, one that he candidly confessed made him "crazy rich," YANOVSKY spent several years casting about for a new life.
He attempted a musical comeback of his own in 1968 with the album Alive and Well and Living in Argentina, but it was, to put it kindly, a flop.
Still, he would occasionally pull out his own review of the album, published in the Star in 1968 under his own byline, and cringe.
Then came a shot at television producing -- Magistrate's Court, a mercifully short-lived and unlamented soap YANOVSKY himself admitted was "awful" -- and a brief period playing with Kris KRISTOFFERSON in 1970.
Finally came the challenge of running a restaurant in Kingston.
"Zal's father Avram was a cook," DOHERTY recalled yesterday.
"He was a bohemian himself, an artist and a writer, so Zal was raised rather 21st-century. There was cooking in the family."
YANOVSKY "loved his later life," DOHERTY said.

Golfed at 103, Great War veteran passes on
By Alanna MITCHELL Thursday, December 26, 2002, Page A1
He golfed at 103, lived to 104 and died days later.
Like all but 11 of the Canadians sent to fight so long ago in the mud and disarray of the First World War, James FRASER of Morrisburg, Ontario, has died.
Mr. FRASER was one of 13 veterans of the First World War still alive this past Remembrance Day. Each of the 13 was profiled in a special report last month in The Globe and Mail.
A remarkable photograph of Mr. FRASER's papery, 103-year-old hands cradling a picture of himself as a teenaged soldier graced the front of the special report and stirred emotions across the country.
The report itself, called We are the Living, a twist on the beginning of the second stanza ("We are the dead. . .") of the war poem In Flanders Fields,sparked an outpouring of affection for those who fought so long ago.
At that time, many Canadians noted that the First World War was then dubbed the war to end all wars, yet nearly a century later, new conflicts threaten the world.
Shortly after The Globe's catalogue of survivors appeared, Peter PREET, who was 17 when he enlisted in the war and scrambled the hills of Vimy Ridge, died at 103. That left 12 in the slender roster of those left to tell the tales of the war that helped shape Canada as a nation.
On December 7, Mr. FRASER followed him to the grave.
Penny RICHMIRE, an attendant at The Hartford Retirement Centre in Morrisburg, Ontario, where Mr. FRASER lived, said he fell ill a short time ago and ended up in hospital.
All the plans at the retirement home for a party to celebrate his 104th birthday were called off. He spent his final birthday in the hospital and died less than a week later, never returning to the home, Ms. RICHMIRE said.
Mr. FRASER was one of about 619,000 Canadians sent to fight in the First World War.
Sixty thousand never made it home, dying abroad from the mustard gas, the contagion of the trenches and in the artillery fire of that ghastly war.
He enlisted at 18, the son of a gamekeeper raised in Glen Dole, Scotland, and served as a private in the British Army's 52nd Lowland Division.
A machine gunner on the front line, he refused all his life to talk about what he witnessed there.
"It was hell, that was all," Mr. FRASER told The Globe last month.
He moved to Canada in 1926 and dug pipelines until he got a job in an apple orchard outside Toronto. He never married.
Ms. RICHMIRE said he was healthy until the final days of his life, never bedridden, never dependent on others to do for him. Last summer at 103, he played golf.
And despite his taciturnity on the subject of the war in which he fought nine decades ago, Mr. Fraser remained bound to that war even in death. His memorial service took place in the James Fraser Hall -- named after him -- at Royal Canadian Legion Number 48 in Morrisburg.
The Legion men's choir, which Mr. FRASER helped to found, sang at the service. And the Legion itself, a testament to the need to remember those brave warriors of long ago, was filled to overflowing with Friends who chose not to forget.

We do not know how to truly thank and express what is in our hearts, which would do justice for all of the wonderful support received for our late beloved wife and mother Bev as well as ourselves. To all the doctors and nurses, palliative and support staff, thank you. For the past and present teachers of J.P. Robarts public School, no amount of thanks would suffice for the staggering outpouring of love that you have shown us. The delicious meals, phone calls, visits and support were in a word, unbelievable, thank you. To John RICHMOND, who delivered the eulogy, thank you. Bev knew she had a true friend in you. To Nick VANDERBLOEG, a former pupil, who delivered the reading, thank you. To our families, the HAGERMANs, Dr. Annette RICHARD (a legend in the making), Friends, contacts, those who attended Bev's memorial service and anyone who we may have been inadvertently missed, thank you so very much. May God bless you all, and best wishes for 2003. Rob, Andrew and Patrick.
