Former wacky Lovin' Spoonful guitarist turned low-key restaurateur, Zal Yanovsky also dabbled in film. Born in Toronto in 1944, Yanovsky and the Lovin' Spoonful scored a handful of hits in the '60s before disappearing into obscurity. Following the group's appearances in the 1966 films The Big T.N.T. Show and What's Up, Tiger Lily?, Yanovsky went on to provide vocal work for the animated 1981 feature Heavy Metal. Although the Lovin' Spoonful would also make an appearance in the 1980 feature One Trick Pony, this would be the only time they would reunite outside of their 2000 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Later the owner (with second wife Rose Richardson) of the upscale Kingston, ON, restaurant Chez Piggy, Yanovsky died of a heart attack in December 2002. He was 57.
