R.I.P. Dept. - Daevid Allen passed away...

Founder member of Soft Machine and Gong and visionary mind behind among the most adventurous music ever played during last century passed away after a long illness today, March 13, 2015.

Saw him once in concert, years ago... have a so vivid memory of the evening.

His sense of  music mas HUGE, his Cort glissando guitar and stage white suit were so unique.

Thankiing Riccardo Pioli for the above nice pix (taken in Trieste (Italy), August 1st, 2009)

I own dozens of his discs: the several Deya, Spain recordings period being my most beloved: recorded on A Revox open reel, they are so fresh and timeless!

R.I.P. and enjoy a free-Camembert and herbal-joys world, dear David... Zero to Eternity!
