Daniel Johnston, the eccentric singer-songwriter, has died following a heart attack. He was 58 years old. Most of his work consisted of cassettes recorded alone in his home, and beloved by Kurt Cobain, Tom Waits, Flaming Lips, Death Cab for Cutie, Bright Eyes, and Beck. pic.twitter.com/T8f1EnrSNx

RIP Daniel Johnston.
I highly recommend scrolling through the Instagram feed of his former manager, Jeff Tartakov, which is filled with Johnston’s letters (like this one), and his fantastic artwork: https://t.co/q7fLqL8xCw pic.twitter.com/DdLJJ8Z7uC

If you’re unfamiliar with Daniel Johnston and interested in learning more, I highly recommend THE DEVIL AND DANIEL JOHNSTON, a highly moving doc that’s available to rent on Amazon Prime. You definitely won’t regret it. pic.twitter.com/85Klz3cj8C
