The Devil and Daniel Johnston

If you have never heard of Daniel Johnston then please do watch the documentary "The Devil and Daniel Johnston", it is beautiful, sad and amazingly inspiring. I have loved his music for a while and also his amazing art work. I am going to see him next month and am very EXCITED.

"Daniel has been in and out of mental hospitals over the years and yet has been able to grow and maintain a steady audience for his music and art due to the purity of his work and the raw and unfiltered emotion he relays to his audiences. And, clearly, also due to some people in his life that love him, believe in him, and have worked tirelessly on his behalf." - Raising Bipolar

I wholeheartedly second the recommendation of the documentary and his music.

Memphis, Tennessee on the record he did with Jad Fair is still one of my favorite songs ever.

Have you seen You're Gonna Miss Me...the documentary about Rocky Erickson?

No, I have not seen that but it looks great! I'm going to get hold of it. Thanks for the recommendation!
