I remember reading something about him having a somewhat romantic relationship in the early 90s but his fear of temptation/sin/being condemned to hell for eternity caused him to distance himself.
Hard to say especially considering his later years were quite private but if he did die a virgin he's in good company with Nick Drake

No but no success found him on the terms he would have liked. He wanted to have #1 Billboard hits and be on the cover of Time Magazine. The fact that he received so much attention, and for lo-fi tapes he distributed largely by himself, is unbelievable. It's too bad he wasn't able to appreciate his success.

we now live in a post-daniel johnston world.
>>
>>90066143
That's mostly because his entire musical world revolved around The Beatles and that's a high bar to live up to.
I think later on in life as his tours brought in bigger and bigger crowds he at least understood that lots of people loved him even if he didn't really grasp exactly the way in which his music affected them.
And he made enough off of commercials, covers, and steady sales to live comfortably at least, though unfortunately he wasn't really able to take care of himself

I never got into him despite seeing Hi, How Are You? recommended a billion times in all the years I've browsed /mu/. Feels bad man, especially when he seems like the kinda thing I'd dig anyway. If I like Jason Molina, Bill Callahan, Dave Bixby etc, what record should I check out? I get the impression he's of that similar lo-fi, journalistic folk vein

I genuinely think he was tortured by the thoughts in his head his entire life.
At least it's over, if nothing else. Rest in power, DJ.

you realize he was just the CWC of his time

kobain was a dickhead troll he fucked disabled chicks if he was born in the 90s he would be on 4chan.

he thought it was funny.

every one shills kobain as some like heartthrob nice guy but he was literally a bisexual theif and life troll. he probably didn't even love Courtney just liked the idea of fucking her fucked up vibe. 99% of the guys and girls that shill him if they met him would think he is lame as fuck and beneth them that is the kobain redpill.. he was cool thou but the way normies found home cool wasn't real.

I don't intend to come across as disrespectful or irreverent of a great artist's passing, but why do you faggots pretend to be personally affected by him dying?
There's almost nothing in the entire world that could be less about you. Why are you grandstanding on a music forum of all places? It's not a competition for who had the most intimate connection with his music. There was no conceivable scenario in which his life didn't end in death, get the fuck over yourselves and honor his legacy as a musician. Characterization of his work as fundamentally sad is a disservice to the complexity of the themes he evoked. It's an ingratiating pity party for people whose only catharsis with his music boils down to

No ones even posting with hubris or ego here, except for you. You literally called out other people for acting like they had a deeper connection with his music and then proceeded to do just that.

[Verse 1]
He was smiling through his own personal hell
Dropped his last dime down a wishing well
But he was hoping too close
And then he fell
Now he’s Casper the friendly ghost

[Verse 2]
He was always polite to the people who’d tell him
That he was nothing but a lazy bum
But goodbye to them he had to go
Now he’s Casper the friendly ghost

[Verse 3]
No one never treated him nice
While he was alive
You can’t buy no respect
Like the librarian said
But everybody respects the dead
They love the friendly ghost

[Verse 4]
And now they say we’ll never forget
What he learned us
We were mean to him
But he never burned us, and
Love lives forever
Thank you, the friendly ghost
Thank you, Casper the friendly ghost

[Outro]
And so the legend grew
And all the people that he knew
Go and spread the news of
Casper the friendly ghost

>>90067534
speaking as a person who is treated for the same mental illness he had, i really believe that his music made him the happiest. having a creative outlet is so healing. but i do agree though, not taking care of physical health is a great challenge and pain and can affect mental health as well.

I'm actually really sad about this one. Goin thru his discog rn. IMO this is his best song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0zrQsuLnGo

It's always seemed really weird to me that everybody idolizes this guy as some kind of indie god, when really he just wanted to be like the Beatles or something. I don't think he really understood entirely why everybody loved him. But for real his shit slaps. Going through his discog now holding back tears. The guy was a legend, some of these songs were just so important to me growing up. I hope 16 year olds breaking away from conventional music will continue to be inspired by him forever

>>
True fact: in his earliest days, back when he used to sell his own home made cassettes, Daniel didn't have a dual deck for duplication so he'd simply play and record the songs again to a new cassette. Each cassette was a unique recording.
>>
One thing I've been curious about. In The Devil And Daniel Johnston, it is stated that whenever Daniel made copies of tapes to give out, he would actually re perform the entire album. Have any of these alternate performances ever shown up?

"In the early 1990s, he suffered a manic psychotic episode during a plane flight, when, believing he was the cartoon character Casper the Friendly Ghost, he threw the ignition keys for the plane out of its window – he and his father escaped with minor injuries following the subsequent crash. It prompted one of many spells in psychiatric institutions, and he was diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder....."

Holy fuck, he caused a plane to crash. I'm surprised he survived for as long as he did

>>
>>90067988
he'll be fine
Also I find it amazing how "malleable"/"ageless" his mind is, his favorite band (XTC) didn't come around until he was pushing 30, he learned how to code websites and use digital recording in his mid-40s in the 90s (and jumped head-first onto Bandcamp when it came into existence), and now he's on Twitter at nearly 70 seemingly with a full grasp of millennial post-ironic humor. Labels handle some releases but his operation is still largely DIY including all the technical stuff. Dude's based and seemingly never stuck in the past

I first found out about Daniel Johnston a few years back, some people were talking about how the song "Wood Jackson" by David Bowie was written about Daniel. I spent the following months being sucked into all of Daniels work, i couldn't believe how much i gravitated towards it, his lyrics, his musical compositions, his personality. I hope he finds all of the peace and love he has always longed for, he's truly inspirational and his work will live on and continue to have an impact on future generations.

Daniel Johnston was essentially a clout martyr.

Everyone is claiming this was a random robbery, but it's clear what was actually happening: his killers were driven to take his life solely for the sake of clout. They wanted infamy of their own and found it in gunning down a 58-year old.

As Dan was taking his final breath, he was surrounded by kids taking video and pictures of him. Why? For clout. No one was taking his pulse, no one was calling 911, everyone was standing around with their phones out as his body was clinging to life.

The moral lesson of Johnston's life story should be a cautionary tale of the horrors of social media and how it's fucked our society beyond belief.

RIP Dan. See you in Heaven...

Daniel has been a huge part of my life for many years. I listen to almost exclusively his music. When i'm not listening to his music, i'm listing to covers of his music. His songs have brought me to tears many times. They have given me hope when i felt like i had none. I have his art on my walls. I have a Yip/Jump Music t-shirt. I have an autographed Jeremiah The Innocent on my wall. I have a Jeremiah tattoo.

He had a way of putting into words these basic truths that are so essential to being a human, things that are essential to living a life, and having relationships. He seemed to do this effortlessly, and yet these were things that other artist rarely spoke about, or were never really able to put their finger on. His talent for putting together pieces of music that were so moving and beautiful was unrivaled in my mind.

I'm posting in this thread in spite of the fact that so many people just want to bicker about nothing, because i know that some of you saw what i saw in him, and you loved him like i did. I'm mourning with you today, and i want you to remember that Daniel had a theme in his music. Something that you could hear in just about every single one of his songs. It wasn't sadness. It was hope.

Daniel Johnston was a bipolar schizophrenic who started making music by recording lofi cassette tapes of him singing while playing a chord organ, most tapes being unique performances of each song due to financial constraints. He started giving away the tapes to local music critics for newspapers and people in his neighborhood, grew a cult following and gained enough money to start recording in studios. He gained more exposure after Kurt Cobain wore a shirt with one of his album covers on it, and it resulted in him getting offered two record deals. The first was on Elektra with a really generous contract, but he declined it because he believed Metallica was possesed by Satan and would hurt him. The second time he actually did accept was with Atlantic, but they only distributed one album before pulling the plug due to poor sales. He never gained mainstream commercial success, but he did influence people who were miles more successful than him (Kurt Cobain, Built to Spill, Cage the Elephant, Jason Pierce, as well all these: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Late_Great_Daniel_Johnston:_Discovered_Covered). I think the biggest commercial exposure he's gotten was having one of his songs be featured in an Apple commercial last year.
In my opinion, his best album is 1990, his first hifi album.
>>90071745
This was a mural that Daniel was commissioned to draw by a Texas record store in 1993. The mural apparently became so beloved in the area that the locals living around it have prevented it from being removed even after the store closed. The business that currently occupies the building is a Thai restaurant named "Thai, How Are You".

i don't post here anymore, but i still come around here when i need to say goodbye to a real one.

i want to thank whoever recommended him to me on here when i was about 15 in ~2012. i had no friends throughout high school and listening to and playing his music was one of the only comforts i had. there are certainly more talented and refined songwriters, but none of them hit my gut like daniel. i can't count the number of times he helped me cry or help me find comfort when i was lonely.

i'm very grateful that this lonely, troubled man handed out his tapes to strangers in west virginia

i'm gonna go play Some Things Last a Long Time and Walking the Cow on my piano and have a few drinks.

Do some research on where Daniel Johnston grew up. He was surrounded by MK-Ultra. A lot of people blame his illness partially on his Mother and her religious, domineering manner. But there were hospitals in Texas, known mind control facilities which have now been shut down, who filled Daniel up with experimental medication. Members of the band "Butthole Surfers" were also exposed to these horrors, including Gibby Haynes. Watch this video from the 1980s and try to remember that Daniel Johnston was a pure soul with a great big heart that got trapped in a sick system of government mind control.

As long as you are limited to being a human, so long as the only artificial amplification of your ability is simply constant means of survival, there exists a nearly endless amount of goals to create and reasons to keep going.

I've been going through a lot of shit lately, life hasn't been the greatest, and school has been killing me with stress slowly. I've lost all my passions and hobbies after being forced to do so much crap against my will. Today I actually had an exam in college, and I find literally 10 minutes before class starts that Daniel died. I ended up almost crying my way into a class that already I wasn't prepared for. I've suffered through a lot of mental issues in my life, and still do, so people like Dan often give me some light in life, knowing i'm not alone. Of course, people like him have it a LOT harder than I do, but I can't help but get attached. I didn't actively listen to his stuff all the time, I usually did when I got sad, but he still remained as someone I respected. I wish I was as passionate about art as he was.

Well either way, he's probably doing better now, away from suffering and his personal demons. I like to think true love in the end is God, and the peace that comes with leaving this shitty world behind. Also, all the fans who loved him as well. Dan deserved better than what happened to him. Rest in peace man

go back and listen to Beefheart and you will have all kinds of people saying it's shit, but keep listening to it for a couple of decades, eventually you realize it's pure fucking genius but what has happened is the music has stayed the same only you have evolved as a listener, you have grown to appreciate

it's the difference between people who "get" Jazz and people who listen to Jazz to get laid

beer is country and western, weed is jazz

daniel is somewhere between folk or low-grade beer and avant garde or LSD = spiritual alchemy in sound form for those who know

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRe3TgI0acg

>Why must happy hearts break so hard?
>Leave you curled up in the back seat of a car
>Staring up at the windshield
>When will broken hearts learn how to heal?

>Why must happy hearts break so hard?
>Leave you standing in the darkness of the barn
>Staring at those rusty wheels
>When will broken hearts learn how to heal?

>Why must happy hearts break so hard
>Leave you staring in the mirror of a bar
>Leave you talking to yourself
>Cause you can't talk to anybody else

>go back and listen to Beefheart and you will have all kinds of people saying it's shit, but keep listening to it for a couple of decades, eventually you realize it's pure fucking genius but what has happened is the music has stayed the same only you have evolved as a listener, you have grown to appreciate
This is true of literally anything. You can find profundity and beauty in the sound of
fart with enough exposure to it

Sad
He died surrounded by hipster parasites

I've always liked Bowie's song about him.

I would be interested in knowing what you consider to be fine musical art (whether in measure of value based on technique, ability to influence another person's thoughts or feelings or behavior, or any value you would care to assign to it). Can you give me some personal examples? My own personal examples would be Symphony No. 9 in D minor by Ludwig Van Beethoven, Evangelista by Carla Bozulich (recommended by Michael Gira from SWANS), The Beatles by The Beatles, anything by Sam Hopkins, anything by Jandek, and anything by Don Van Vliet. and last but definitely not least OM and India by John Coltrane.

So when a truly genuine and inspiring musician dies there's no shitty crossposters coming to give condolences, but good thing when Avicii or someone like that died thread was full of "I'm here from /sp/fit/a/pol/whatever to press an F :'(((("

Fucking cheap skins.

death makes some people sad.

how is that hard to grasp? personally I was shocked when I heard the news this morning, but not exactly sad. I'm still gonna go on with my day, except I'll listen to Daniel Johnston today.

That really is a picture of Loli-Chan and she has the same illness that Daniel Johnston had. Weird.

>>90077137

Daniel was sexually active before his illness. If you watch some of the old archive footage of him in Austin, back when he was dating girls and dropping acid, he talks about having sex. I think he even talks about having sex with Caroline in the video posted above in this thread.

me and daniel were both born in sacramento, ca
he didn't grow up here, but it's still cool.

Rest in peace Daniel, thank you for your music and what it's done for my life.

Goddammit I'd just recently thought to myself that this would be the only musician death that would really affect me because he's the only one I have a strong emotional connection to.

I didn't expect it to happen so soon.
RIP Danny

RIP
a part of him is immortalized in his music
