Goner Message Board / ???? / RIP Daniel Johnston
Posted: Sep 11, 2019 5:45 pm
 
Saw him way back in 2003 at All Tomorrow's Parties on the Queen Mary. His plane was late and he didn't get there until about 1:45 and it was over at 2:00. He only did about three songs.

It was one of the most powerful musical performances I have ever seen.

He also invited me up on stage once at SXSW to "sing" with him. Maybe it was because I looked as dorky as he did.

RIP Daniel.

RIP Daniel Johnston. Did some correspondence with him in the 90s for a zine I was working on. Still have the drawing he sent.

True love will find you in the end

You'll find out just who was your friend
Don't be sad, I know you will
But don't give up until
True love will find you in the end

This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking can it find you
'Cause true love is searching too
But how can it recognize you

If you don't step out into the light, the light
Don't be sad I know you will
Don't give up until
True love will find you in the end
