News update from the Allen family in Australia: “Daevid Allen has passed on. He left today, this Friday the Thirteenth, at 1:05pm.”
The RIP list for 2015 is already stacking up (Terry Pratchett passed away yesterday) and it’s only March. Sad to see so many innovators leaving this mortal coil, breaking out the Camembert and making a pot of tea in his memory. RIP Daevid.
