April 6, 2017 saw the passing of David Peel, founder of David Peel and the Lower East Side. He and the band were early proponents of “street rock” and embraced the hippie/marijuana culture of the 60’s and 70’s. One could also say that he was an early punk pioneer as well. His recording career spanned 6 decades, and his last album was released in 2015. The clip below is notable as it has some special guests, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, and is a live performance on the David Frost Show in 1971.
