As I just said in a PM to you, Jean, I wonder if he's the oldest progger?

Oh and belated birthday wishes to Daevid Allen, keep on proggin'!

there are certainly not many who are older than he, that's for sure.
as a special birthday present we should finally include him in the archives as a solo artist; it is long overdue

Happy birthday from me too. There is a photo of him in his birthday suit on the Gong homepage. I dare not post it in here, it would be against the rules. The Gong homepage, however, is here:

Click on the thumbnail and shudder lol.

I last saw him live (with Brainville) a few months ago - he performed for more than 2 hours and was absolutely magnificent. I only hope I'm that energetic when I'm that old. Happy birthday whatever planet you're on!
