As with other talented but troubled artists such as Syd Barrett, Brian Wilson, and Roky Erickson, Daniel Johnston fights a daily battle with the chronicmental illness that has plagued him nearly his entire life. However, despite recurrent bouts of delusional behavior wherein he has physicallyendangered himself and others, Johnston has carved out a respectable, influential career as a singer/songwriter of extraordinary talent who hasgrown since his first crudely recorded cassette was released in 1980. He became the singer/songwriter of choice of the alternative/underground rockscene, and at various times has had his work championed by members of Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Butthole Surfers, Half Japanese, Nirvana (KurtCobain was often photographed wearing a Daniel Johnston T-shirt), and numerous others.
