I read today that the funeral of Kevin Ayers will be on what would have been on his 69th Birthday in Deia, Majorca. This was mentioned by his daughter Galen on the wonderful Ollie Hallsall Archive.
Galen said, “Dad’s final resting place will be in Deia, Mallorca Spain. He will be buried next to his musical collaborator and best friend Ollie Halsall. The private funeral will take place at sunset this 16th of August and will be followed by a public musical celebration of Kevin’s life. We all hope you will join us in this final dance. The musical acts are yet to be confirmed but the love being present is a surety. See you in August.”
I’m currently looking at flights to Majorca for that weekend.
