He wrote some amazing songs but struggled with his mental illness for his whole life. It sucks that he’s gone but he’s finally free from his demons.

He had some really cool stuff. The range of emotions in some of his writings is incredible. The Devil and Daniel Johnston is a great documentary and we'll worth a watch.

His library is available on Spotify which is pretty cool.

It’s a well done doc, but it’s a tough watch. The part where he’s in the plane with his dad kills me.

On a lighter note, I love this arrangement of “Life in Vain” on ACL with Swell Season.
