Clive was also the drummer of Uriel, a member of Steve Hillage's touring band, and a member of The Groundhogs during their Hogwash-Solid era. RIP, my condolences to your loved ones.

Daevid Allen, an obituary

Oh shit... 
Sorry for that. Anger, disbelief, sadness, a rush of emotions. Of course, every train eventually pulls into the station one last time, and my thoughts are for those closest to him, and to his bravery.
I can't think of many (any?) from Daevid Allen's generation that have influenced so many, not just musically, but on that oh so slippery slope that I'll call “the spiritual level”. Perhaps that's why we all take the news so personal? I mean there's so many of us, and only one of him. Queue up “Zion my T-shirt” from the new album...
