‘I Like Marijuana’ singer David Peel suffers heart attack

Anti-establishment rock ’n’ roller David Peel suffered a massive heart attack and is in critical condition, a friend told The Post.

Peel, 73, was stricken Friday and was recovering Saturday at Manhattan Veterans Hospital, where he is “resting up for a bypass,” friend John Penley said.

With his band, David Peel & the Lower East Side, he was known for the 1968 hippie anthem “I Like Marijuana.”

Peel — who was close friends with Beatle John Lennon — launched his music career in the late 1960s, strumming songs such as “Die Yuppie Scum” in Washington Square Park.

He was discovered by Lennon and signed by Apple Music to record the album “The Pope Smokes Dope.”
