Gong Icon Daevid Allen Dead At 77
. (TeamRock Radio) Gong icon Daevid Allen has died at the age of 77, just weeks after he announced he'd been given six months to live. The Australian reported in February that he was suffering from inoperable cancer and he'd decided to stop fighting the disease.
Allen said: "I am not interested in endless operations. In fact is has come as a relied 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."
His death was confirmed this morning with a brief statement on the Daevid Allen's University Of Errors Facebook page, which said simply: "daevid est mort, daevid is dead". Read more here.
