My progressive friends, I have some very important news that concerns the Pothead Pixie himself:

*******

To all concerned Gong Global Family - Brace yourselves as we have some hard news for everyone. We will be straight up about this as we believe that everyone involved and all the Global Family deserves to know the direct truth of Daevid's changing health situation and to be part of the transformation the next sixth months will bring - There is a massive and very important opportunity for a positive collective transformation of everyone energetically and spiritually part of Gong.

So calling all Gong Gentle folk, Global psychedelic Gongheads, Gnomes, PHPs, Pixies and Travelers, musicians, artists and regular folk who have been with Gong over time to come join us in this conscious and powerful celebration - joint meditation and contemplation of Dying and Death : Time to Transform the Western Dominant and Taboo Death Paradigm.

* Now a word from the Mr Bert Dingo Virgin Camembert himself* or otherwise known as Dada Ali :

Hello you Kookaburras,

OK so I have had my PET-CAT scans (which is essentially a full body viewing gallery for cancer specialists) and so it is now confirmed that the invading cancer has returned to successfully establish dominant residency in my neck.

The original surgery took much of it out, but the cancer has now recreated itself with renewed vigour while also spreading to my lung. The cancer is now so well established that I have now been given approximately six months to live.

So My view has Changed:

I am not interested in endless surgical operations and in fact it has come as a relief to know that the end is in sight.

I am a great believer in "The Will of the Way Things Are" and I also believe that the time has come to stop resisting and denying and to surrender to the way it is.

I can only hope that during this journey, I have somehow contributed to the happiness in the lives of a few other fellow humans.

I believe I have done my best to heal, dear friends, and that you have been enormously helpful in supporting me through this time.

So Thank you SO much for being there with me, for the Ocean of Love and Now, importantly, Thankyou for starting the process of letting go of me, of mourning then transforming and celebrating this death coming up - this is how you can contribute, this would be a great gift from those emotionally and spiritually involved with me.

I love you and will be with you always - Daevidxxx

More information and posts to come soon as I am sure this is enough to Digest for everyone - Ummmmmm Grooooaaaaooouuuuuoouuuuwwwlll woof- with Big warm Flamedog Alien Hugs to all those affected deeply by this news - we will post more info in a few days - Your Loyal InterGalactic White Flamedog X

*****

Along with Edgar Froese's passing, this is a very troubling time, and I wish Daevid so much happiness, love and fulfilment. I'm sorry, I can barely even comment right now....

Indeed, more bad sad news from the Head Pothead Pixie himself I hope he can get the most from whatever time he has left on THIS planet...

Oh, no Cry

I'm in shock.

So much more to give as a physical being yet so little time; musically, the #1 prog album of 2014 cf. my submission to PA's top album survey.

He'll play a prominent role in my meditation tonight. His energy will continue to have an impact on me and everyone else who is open to it Smile

I have tears in my eyes.........
Daevid, you are a visionary, a pioneer, a master of Time and Space. I wish you nothing but the best - you've made many folks smile.
Terribly sad state of affairs............
Gliss on.

I was messed up in my own troubles, so only saw this just now. Sad... best I could do was honour the man with a Track of the Day on my blog.

Such sad news, though I am deeply moved by Daevid's acceptance and serenity. When Micky and I saw the rough screening of the forthcoming Romantic Warriors: Canterbury Tales documentaries, I was impressed by his youthfulness and gentle sense of humour. Very likely Daevid will have already left us when the film is finally released - which will make things even more poignant, seen as we have already lost so many of the original Canterbury artists.

Very sad news - I've found his recent career truly inspiring, and I hope I'm as energetic and creative in my 70s and able to face the final curtain with as much grace, serenity and dignity.
