My favorite man ever, seriously, I was so upset that his show here was 19+, I would have loved to see him live

I saw him play a couple years ago even though I didn't know who he was. He's simple but mindblowing. Completely memorable. I've been a fan ever since. He passed through town a couple weeks ago and I missed it.

I really need to see the documentary about him.

I like Daniel Johnston, haven't been listening to him all that long though. I am going to be seeing him live next month though, I'm pretty excited.

He's almost awkward, like he might have a meltdown on stage or something, but then when he plays it goes away and you can't help but want to give the guy a hug.

Figured I would bump the thread of one of my favorite singer-songwriters of all time.

To start things up, here's a wonderful song that I effortlessly connect with and love. It's from Don't Be Scared (1982)... a personal favorite of mine.

^^ I recently watched The Devil and Daniel Johnston. I remember the video/song above and it is good stuff.
Very depressing material, but without his mental illness I doubt he would have been the artist he was/is. (I'm not sure what he is up t these days)****ty guitar player, but it worked with what he had going on. I really enjoy him.

This one's my favorite, save the fact that it depresses the **** out of me.

Some of his old music was featured in a film that just premiered at SXSW. I think he was also scheduled to play a set of his own music but I'm not sure if he did.



Also, I wouldn't say that he's a shitty guitarist - he just chooses to play that way. In any case, here's something he did a couple years ago.
