Daniel Johnston
6 hrs ·

From The Hi, How Are You Project page:

It is with very heavy hearts that we share the news of Daniel’s passing this morning. One thing we know to be true in this sad time, in Daniel’s words, “True love will find you in the end.”

We will share details about a memorial as soon as they become available.


The Johnston family is deeply saddened to announce the death of their brother, Daniel Johnston.

He passed away from natural causes this morning at his home outside of Houston, Texas.

Daniel was a singer, songwriter, an artist, and a friend to all. Although he struggled with mental health issues for much of his adult life, Daniel triumphed over his illness through his prolific output of art and songs. He inspired countless fans, artists, and songwriters with his message that no matter how dark the day that "the sun shines down on me" and "true love will find you in the end."

Daniel's life and music inspired the Hi, How Are You Project to encourage open conversation around mental health. His birthday, January 22, is celebrated as Hi, How Are You Day.

Dick Johnston, Daniel's older brother says of Dan, “I always wanted Danny to feel like his own person, and in control of his own life. Since beginning to work and travel with him in about 2003, we gratefully were able to travel the entire globe for over a decade to get out before the fans. He was always, everywhere, warmly received and he at least knew he was well loved. Health issues have plagued us for years, but I’m glad for the time we had.”

Tom Gimbel, Daniel's manager of over 25 years says "I am so saddened by the news of Daniel's passing. It has been the greatest honor and privilege of my professional life to work with Daniel Johnston - someone who I consider to be one of the greatest songwriting geniuses of our time. In our time together Daniel was more than an artist; he was a friend, he was family. I will miss him greatly but will smile every time I hear his songs."

That first album was pretty good. I saw him at the college around that time. He was managed by Bill Graham and was in a package with other Graham artists, I believe with Gamma and Santana headlining.

RIP Ric! I’m a pretty big Cars fan. They made some really great records.

One of my favorite parts in a Cars song is when Ocasek sings "You're so treacherous!" in Since You're Gone. It sounded like a parody of Dylan.

Yeah. I was listening to that last night and I was thinking about how his vocal kind of reminded me of Tom Petty, that kind of deadpan delivery that he did. And of course, Petty has been compared to Dylan quite a bit.

James Colbert had a nice tribute to Ric on his show last night.

I tried to post a link but it said it’s not available.
