I got sad news this afternoon- my friend the songwriter- artist Daniel Johnston- passed away last night at the age of 58. The article below calls him a songwriting genius- and he was. Lots of great memories with Dan. He had been in failing health in recent years-his passing wasn’t a shock but I am feeling very sad this afternoon. The picture above is Dan, my sister and myself- in the early 90’s.
below stories from the Austin Chronicle- Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.
