From The Guardian:

Daevid Allen, the eccentric frontman of the prog-psych-space-jazz fusion group Gong, has announced that he has only six months to live.

In a statement, Allen said the cancer for which he had previously been treated has returned and spread to his lung. He said he would not be pursuing further treatment.

Very sad news. His work in the early 70’s was truly groundbreaking.
