In many ways, cult singer/songwriter Daniel Johnston is one of the founders of lo-fi. Many present day artists wouldn't make music the way they do, unafraid of exposing their frailties. Daniel proved that it isn't the quality of the recording that matters, or whether there are mistakes, bum notes or out-of-tune instruments. What matters above anything is the quality of the songs - as fans including Beck, Sonic Youth and Johnny Depp can attest. Daniel has an astonishing natural talent, rooted in his love for his beloved Beatles and tempered by his volatile, sometimes desperately sad, life experience. He can affect the listener in a way few singers can, because his life is entirely shorn of artifice. Author Everett True talks to family members, friends, former managers and fans to delve inside Daniel's troubled life and discover what fuels the genius. This title contains exclusive Johnston family archive photography, and original artwork from Daniel himself.
