Friends of David Peel turned out yesterday afternoon to honor the musician during a memorial wake at the Peter Jarema Funeral Home on Seventh Street...
Later, there was a singing tribute of his music in Tompkins Square Park...
The longtime East Village resident — known for his 1960s anthem "I Like Marijuana" and later for collaborations with John Lennon and Yoko Ono — died on April 6. He was 73. (The Times has a feature obituary here.)
His burial is tomorrow morning at 11 at Calverton National Cemetery in Riverhead, N.Y.
