Yeah, loved that guy too. His music made me a happier and more empathic person. Daevidís music has been and always will be a big part of my life. Thanks for the tunes and see ya around.

Very sad news. Gong was his vision, and what a masterful one at that!

For the past few weeks the ringtone on my phone has been 'Out of Here' alt version from the recent Stoned Innocent Frankenstein album. My sister used to live in France and bought both the Banana Moon and Camembert Electrique Albums on Byg for me as they were released. Really got into Banana Moon album when by coincidence it was 5 to 3 am and I was depriving myself of sleep.

Heard it announced on radio 4 as i sped down the M4; its hard to drive with tears in your eyes.. Later that evening Steven Wilson gave his tribute at the Cardiff gig and dedicated 'The Raven that refused to sing' so more tears.. But such solice to think Camembert Electrique and the Radio Gnome trilogy are being played all around the planet at this moment and Daevids supremely positive and healing vision for the world will be left as legacy of profound sillyness and joy for all future generations to enjoy. After tears Cry comes celebrationClapBig smile Thank you Daevid, rest in peace and blessings on the wider Gong family xx

I've been offline for a few days and this was the first thing I learnt when I got everything fixed.
I got into Gong from a friend in the 90's. Used to have "Shapeshifter" poster on my bedroom wall. (Although I kept missing the tours!)
R.I.P. Daevid Allen and thanks for the music that's meant a lot to how I turned out!

Farewell to friend Daevid.  We are all better for the ways he and his music touched our lives.  And our heads.
The world of sound is certainly capable of infinite variety and, were our sense developed, of infinite extensions. -- George Santayana, "The Sense of Beauty"

indeed man.  Another case of a life to be celebrated rather than a loss to be mourned. I'm sure that is exactly how he'd see it.

Happy to see his suffering is over and he has moved on to bigger and better things in that cosmic wheel of life.
