Daevid Allen dies aged 77
Although this news is not a shock considering he has been in ill health for some while, it is still a shame.

I was going to say, to die once is bad enough, to die twice looks like carelessness, or the work of a supremely pissed off deity.

We're NOT talking about the 9 fingered Irish comedian with the whiskey are we?

The amount of stuff consumed over the years, he's probably not sure he's left this mortel coil, man.

Having never heard of him, my only comment is Friday the 13th proved unlucky in his case.

The bloke was a loon - some good tunes here or there though.

I bet Stoat is gutted.

I'd still love to know how he lost the top bit of his finger.

To be honest, I've never really liked Gong.

But, his early stuff with The Soft Machine, albeit brief, did rival Barrett's Pink Floyd as the house band of the emerging British psychedelic underground at the UFO club in Tottenham Court Road.

There's a great colour clip of The Soft Machine on stage at UFO in '67, with Daevid Allen reciting a poem in support of leading underground figure, and founder of UFO, John Hopkins, who had just been gaoled for possession of hash. Hopkins also sadly died a just about a month or so ago.

Thanks, Daevid, it's been a long strange trip...

Re: Daevid Allen dies aged 77
Such a shame.

The new Gong album is ****ing excellent. Only just discovered he was ill.
