I gave him a first edition of Kamandi (a Jack Kirby comic book) and some other Kirby stuff. He signed the concert poster for me "Best of Luck, your friend...." and gave me some orange juice and crackers. I dont think we ever really made eye contact, but we did shake hands, and he was very appreciative polite. It was a great concert, by the way. Just Daniel and a guitar and a small room full of people who knew all the words to all his songs. Truly a living William Blake.

other: it was the summer of 1988, and i spent it in the squalor of an efficiency apartment with three things: a copy of Raise High The Roof Beam Carpenter, a crummy 15 year old tape recorder, and a copy of a copy of a copy of Dan's original tape which he had distributed at a Mcdonalds some years before. even though he later went on to do records and television, and has now become respected as some sort of underground hero-genius, i still like to think of him as that lonely, passionate maniac plunking away on the piano while his mother ranted at him in the background. every single song on that long-lost tape was wonderful.

(look for my band "La Nuit (the night)" on this website)
other: I was blown away by Daniel's music about five years ago when I first heard Yip/Jump music. I ordered it because I was listening alot to the Groovie Ghoulies and they covered "to go home" and "Devil town", both of which were songs I really liked. It was awesome to see him in concert last year here in Salt Lake, I was blown away all over again, he's such an amazingly honest and heartfelt performer. Daniel is a huge influence for me, I spend alot of time with music. I covered "Museum of Love" on my first album (owed to a past love) since its one of my most favorite songs. You can listen to some of the songs off of it on the loaf-i website.

other: as i surf  i'm dismayed at how many seem to like daniel solely for his mental illness or some sort of perverse  form of credibility. i think  he deserves all the good he's gotten { and probably more} just by listening to a few bars of his music. i'll step down now.

name: Jason Young
country: U.S.
town: Dublin, OH
favorite Musicians: Daniel Johnston, Scott Walker, Tom Waits, Sparklehorse, Nick Cave, Dylan,  Andy Gibb(!),  Jandek, Love,  Brian Wilson, Johnny Dowd, and Edith Piaf.
favorite Daniel Johnston Songs:  Dont Be Scared, Put My Love Out The Door,  Wicked Will,  My Yoke Is Heavy,  Billions/Rock, Catie,  Premarital Sex,  The Sun Shines Down On Me, Fly Eye,  and Cold Hard World...stop me before I list 'em all...
other: "Me" is a  30 year old male living close to Columbus, hoping that Daniel's "pending" performance in Columbus in  April will become a reality.  I've spent the majority of my "free time"  over the past year listening to Daniel's music and being constantly awed by it.  I was knocked out when I heard his reference to Red Donnely in "Cold Hard World", as I grew up near Daniel's birthplace and watched Red Donnely on the 6 o'clock news each night with my mother, watching things like the "Hostages In Iran" ordeal, so "Cold Hard World"  immediately hit home and I was able to find solace in his other songs as well.  I could go on for hours about the impact his music has on me, but I know better than to do that to strangers! 
No website or photo yet, I'm still somewhat new to all things cyber...but I'm glad I found your site.  Been listening to the new CD,  which is good, and  I'm sure will grow on me, like Sparklehorse took awhile to do....but nothing probably can ever compare to his classic "basement tapes".  His legacy could rest solely on those recordings,  but what's he doing now is still far better than the vast majority of what you may find at Sam Goody, etc.  My dream is that he will one day be produced by Tom Waits, or by  the also severely underrated Scott Walker.
