Band BiographyEdit

Daniel Johnston lives at home. He suffers from bi-polar disorder, but has a complete ear and knack for pop music. He used to write and record all of his albums at home on a consumer model Radio Shack tape deck, although now he's known to record at least some of his songs in the studio, if not all of them. He's in a fragile mental state, and sadly some people take advantage of him, although he also has many famous friends and fans, including [[David Bowi, [[Jad Fai, Kurt Cobain and Sonic Youth. Recently, a tribute album came out; it was two discs—one disc of people like [[eel, Beck and [[Tom Wait covering his songs, and the other disc, featured the originals. He's still putting out records, but unfortunately, the album artwork of the recent releases tends to play up his mental illness, banking on the freak show aspect to sell records, rather than the fact that he's got a great pop sensibility in his songwriting. Despite the name of the tribute record, he is still alive.
