RIP Daniel Johnston

This song has given me so much comfort through some of the shittiest times. RIP Daniel.

A nice story here from Leagues, who brought Daniel to Ireland in the late 2000s.

Fuck, this is so sad.

So much of his work was understatedly beautiful and simple. Genius of a songwriter.

Going to quietly reflect today and indulge myself in his catalogue.

Really sad about this. I never got to see him play but I found his story quite inspirational. true love will find you is beautiful.

Nice little story here from Tony Wright too (VerseChorusVerse, ex-ASIWYFA)

That was an amazing show and Daniels humanity and warmth really shone through.
I have the gig poster from that night framed in my house.

“True Love…” sounds like it was recorded on a £10 guitar in his bedroom, but just shows how honesty is everything in music. A beautiful beautiful song.
RIP.
