Daevid Allen

Gong icon passes away weeks after reporting he had 6 months to live

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" rel="nofollow - 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, it has come as a relief 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" rel="nofollow - Daevid Allen’s University Of Errors Facebook page , which said simply: “Daevid est mort, Daevid is dead”.

His son Orlando said via Facebook: “Dada Ali, Bert Camembert, the Dingo Virgin, Divided Alien and his other 12 selves prepare to pass up the oily way and back to the planet of love. And I rejoice and give thanks.

“As the eternal wheel turns we will continue your message of love and pass it around. We are all one – we are all Gong. Rest well, my friend, float off on our ocean of love. You have left such a beautiful legacy and we will make sure it forever shines in our children and their children.”

Allen’s last public appearance was at a poetry recital in Byron Bay, New South Wales, on February 27.
