Linda Rogoff Segal


About the illness that claimed his second wife Linda Rogoff: "It started with a hospital screwup about four years ago. Linda had a sore throat, which they misread. She was allergic to penicillin, the doctors weren't aware of it, and they kept pumping her full of the stuff. It killed her.

"They didn't know what was wrong with her--they thought it was a tropical disease and a whole lot of other things. There was a series of unbelievable surgeries. It went from bad to worse, and in the end her body couldn't take it anymore.

"In fact, she had a condition called aplastic anemia. But all the hospital did was exacerbate the problem. It has been a terrible four years, and what happened fills me with a kind of rage."

LINDA ROGOFF SEGAL, CW'68, New York City, June 13. After Penn, she moved to California and worked with the well-known rock promoter, Bill Graham; and later served as road manager for the Pointer Sisters. She retired 13 years ago, after marrying the actor George Segal. In recent years she was ill with complications from aplastic anemia.

George moved in with (and eventually married) Linda Rogoff, a woman he met backstage after playing with a Beverly Hills jazz band.




How he met his second wife, Linda Rogoff, onetime manager of the Pointer Sisters, could have been a scene in a Mel Frank-George Segal movie. It happened when Segal was playing banjo with the Beverly Hills Unlisted Jazz Band as opening act for Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme at New York's Carnegie Hall.

"I did my usual number of 'Yes, Sir, That's My Baby,'" Segal related, "and I used the (Frank) Sinatra trick of picking one person in the audience to sing to. The one I picked happened to be Linda. I had given three tickets to (writer) Terry Southern, and he had invited her. When they came backstage after the concert, I fell in love. Just like a movie."

As a sideline, he's played the banjo with various groups for some years. It was when he played Carnegie Hall that he met Linda Rogoff, now his wife (his marriage to Marion, his wife of 26 years, ended in 1983). He credits Linda with helping him finally kick his drug habit.
