Re: Daevid Allen saying farewell

Sad to read that. Daevid is / was always ahead of his times. Always in the future. Founder, mastermind and member of many bands. Soft Machine, Gong, to say some. I hope he doesn't suffer too much, if it's true it's a terminal disease and he's not able to get over. Great guy.

Re: Daevid Allen saying farewell

Dang it! i am so tired of the Big C taking one human after another under it's ever expanding cloak of death. I hope Daevid has as comfortable a transition as is possible and his family is able to come to terms as well. He lives on in his music...it fills us all

"You never blow yr trip forever......."

Daevid's music will live on long after this sad day comes about. Let's hope that isn't for a loooong while.

Sad news. Not really familiar with him or his work but it's still sad.
