Daevid Alllen (gong)
Daevid Allen is the most talented unknown musician, poet, guitarist on the planet (Gong)! If it was not for him and Steve Hillage there would not be bands like Ozric Tentacles and Eat Static.
He is the man behind Shpongle and Hallucinogen. Along with his partner, Raja Ram , he is the one pushing the boundries of goa-trance.
His guitar playing is brillant and his lyrics are biting and satarical.
His music changed my life and helped me thru art school and beyond
Best known for his guitar acrobatics but he can play any instrument you throw at him. His music/groups go from totally sappy pop (The Bears) to very complicated math rock (King Crimson).
