I would not post this unless I saw that carrie marks has already posted something which was passed on to me by Eric. The professor is at the Surf City Allstars show then to have heard that David marks of the Beach Boys has been hospitalized today. I will continue to follow as everyone will whatever information comes out. But I am myself in the state of anxiety and shock sitting here in the front row before the show is about to begin without David. I am focusing all my energy on good wishes for David and sending this message of deep love and devotion to him as one of our great heroes who has brought us so much incredible pleasure over the years, and we can't wait to hear from him and to see him back burning those great classic guitar solos and playing that toes to the nose rhythm so central to beach boy music. Here's to you Dave. Please get well and know that we love you very much.

 Posted by Carrie earlier:

Lack of ticket sales tonight literally broke David's heart. He was admitted to the hospital with severe chest pain this morning where he had a 99% blockage of his aorta removed and 3 stints put in. The doctor said it was a miracle he didn't just drop dead of a massive heart attack. I'm still a little in shock, but he's resting comfortably and arguing with me about whether or not his romance with Cheetos is over. It is!

The show is getting a late start, but it does not appear to be cancelled. the promoter told me the show would be played in dave's honor. The crowd is very small, & I never would have heard about the show if Erica had not posted it on this board. So something must have gone wrong with the promotion. Most of the people here heard about it in local newsletters concerning things to do in the South Bay. Something must have gone very wrong with the whole advertisement of the show. Many many many people would want to flock to see these all stars and to see Dave. The attendance tonight is no real reflection of Dave's popularity and of the role that this music has in Southern California, national, and global history. I am sure that Mike and Bryan and Al and Bruce are monitoring the situation and keeping in touch and showing support for Dave. This of course is just my feeling about how these beachboys care for each other, & I do look forward to hearing more and good news about Dave's recovery.

Pullin' for YOU David....BIG TIME.  At least now you won't have to wonder why your balls kept turning orange.  Don't worry about a thing.  It wasn't and isn't your 'time'.

Very best of wishes. I love David Marks.

My 82-year old uncle survived an emergency quadruple bypass + aortic valve replacement recently, and David's a spring chicken by comparison... so he can beat this, no doubt. It can be done!

I hope the other Beach Boys can all put their differences aside once and for all (and beyond this incident... from this point on), and rally around his side. I'd be surprised if Brian and Mike don't (at the very least) speak on the phone about this.

Please stay with us, Dave.

The show so far is a surreal experience. The band is speaking lovingly of davr and said that they want to do justice to the songs for his sake. The lead guitarist who is filling in for most of the parts that Dave would be playing is doing a good job, but it's very clear that he did not expect to play some of those parts.  they are soldiering on for the sake of the show and of the music and of dave. But on all the great fills and solos, which Dave plays in the beach boy shows, and many  of which he also played on the records,  it is quite clear that after Carl  no one in the world can play those parts except dave.

I am heading back in for the second half now, feeling of the power of the music and yet at once feeling so miserably and inexplicably lonely.

Hey David, special thoughts for you this weekend — hope you're soon back on your feet and back to making great music (and enjoying great travels!). A special treat to have seen & heard you in Manchester and London this year, looking forward to the next concerts here, with whichever band! Good vibes!

Just posted on FB:
Tonight after getting off stage at Eastern Kentucky University, I called home, and Jacquelyne told me the news that David Marks was in the hospital. I want David to know that we are all sending him our prayers, good vibrations and wishes for a complete recovery. I'd like to remind him that I think it would be a great time to practice his TM. The deeper rest will help him heal. Peace and Love, Mike Love

Sending much love to David, his family, friends and bandmates. It was a pleasure to finally meet him, say hello and watch him play those legendary licks that are known the world over. I hope he never forgets how admired and respected both the work and the man are.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, David! You're just a couple of weeks older than me, and in addition to your superb guitar playing over the past 50+ years, I'll never forget how incredibly cool you looked when I first saw your photos on the front and back covers of the early BB albums.

Thinking of you tonight, David and Carrie, and sending out prayers for a speedy recovery. What a blessing it has been to watch you back on the front line with your Hawthorne neighbors, lo these last several years. A gift.
