other: I found out about Daniel Johnston in the Spin magazine article and fell in love with his cartoons years before I heard his music. I used to live in Austin, TX and could relate to his mental illness since I’m bi-polar myself. I finally saw Daniel at a 1990 in-store appearance at Austin’s Sound Exchange. I was the guy that gave him the typing paper that he is seen drawing cartoons for people on in the Devil and Daniel Johnston DVD. I also grew up reading Casper the Friendly Ghost and am also a Christian. I never heard his music until I saw him live. I remember him singing Running Water and was blown away by it’s brilliance. We have a lot in common. I’m a true fan forever.

town: Jackson
favorite bands: The Beatles, Daniel Johnston (obviously), John Cale, Gov’t Mule, The Rolling Stones, The Beach Boys, Nick Drake, John Coltrane, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan, George Gershwin, Hank Williams, lots of old 78’s.
favorite songs: “Hey Jude” is probably my favorite Beatles song. Not sure what my favorite Daniel song is... Probably something off the most recent album, which I think is his best, or “Long Lost Love.” I like so many songs by so many other artists... It’s hard. I’d pick the Beach Boys’ “Endless Summer” collection as their best, even though I’m working on a book about “Smile” at the moment. My favorite Stones is “Exile,” or maybe the “Trident Demos” boot, which gets played a lot. For Tom Waits it’s “Mule Variations,” and I think “Blood On The Tracks” is probably Dylan’s best.
website: www.DougSulpy.com
other - I’m the author of “The 910’s Guide To The Beatles’ Outtakes,” “Get Back,” and several other books about The Beatles, as well as “The 910,” a newsletter for collectors which has been around since 1990. Strangely, my introduction to Daniel Johnston’s music had nothing to do with The Beatles at all – a friend of mine ran a record store on the Jersey Shore, and one day when I walked in said: “this is interesting... I think you have to hear this...” and put on “Fun” for me, which had just come out on Atlantic. That’s all it took to get ME hooked :-).

website: follow the links to the history dept. and then staff at www.qmul.ac.uk
other: i'm what you americans would call a `professor' of russian history at the university of london. daniel entered my life in about 1988, from the recommendation of stephen pastel. i wrote, i think, one of the first serious articles on him and his music for the first (and only) edition of the pastels' fanzine, `pastelism'  in 1988 (copies on request - of the article); although, at that point, all i knew of him was what i could glean from the songs on the cassettes (kindly supplied to me by his then manager, geoff) which i listened to constantly for months on end. i can only say that, as others have said, i was just shocked and immediately in awe of the raw, honest emotion of the songs and was possessed (for ever) by the gorgeous melodies; and, yes, intrigued by the madness of it all. there's no sense in denying that.  for me, he ranks up there with the greats (hank, dylan) and is one of the constants in my all too fractured life. one moment i'll never forget was when, driving around northern ireland in 1989 with my girlfriend (now wife), listening to a compilation of daniel on the stereo i'd put together from the cassettes, she suddenly (alarmingly!) pulled over into a gateway because she had to cry. man, that man can move you! i have yet to see him play live, but thank god he exists. daniel has made me (and you) a better person. full stop

I gave him a first edition of Kamandi (a Jack Kirby comic book) and some other Kirby stuff. He signed the concert poster for me "Best of Luck, your friend...." and gave me some orange juice and crackers. I dont think we ever really made eye contact, but we did shake hands, and he was very appreciative polite. It was a great concert, by the way. Just Daniel and a guitar and a small room full of people who knew all the words to all his songs. Truly a living William Blake.

other: it was the summer of 1988, and i spent it in the squalor of an efficiency apartment with three things: a copy of Raise High The Roof Beam Carpenter, a crummy 15 year old tape recorder, and a copy of a copy of a copy of Dan's original tape which he had distributed at a Mcdonalds some years before. even though he later went on to do records and television, and has now become respected as some sort of underground hero-genius, i still like to think of him as that lonely, passionate maniac plunking away on the piano while his mother ranted at him in the background. every single song on that long-lost tape was wonderful.

other: I was blown away by Daniel's music about five years ago when I first heard Yip/Jump music. I ordered it because I was listening alot to the Groovie Ghoulies and they covered "to go home" and "Devil town", both of which were songs I really liked. It was awesome to see him in concert last year here in Salt Lake, I was blown away all over again, he's such an amazingly honest and heartfelt performer. Daniel is a huge influence for me, I spend alot of time with music. I covered "Museum of Love" on my first album (owed to a past love) since its one of my most favorite songs. You can listen to some of the songs off of it on the loaf-i website.

favorite Daniel Johnston Songs:  Dont Be Scared, Put My Love Out The Door,  Wicked Will,  My Yoke Is Heavy,  Billions/Rock, Catie,  Premarital Sex,  The Sun Shines Down On Me, Fly Eye,  and Cold Hard World...stop me before I list 'em all...
other: "Me" is a  30 year old male living close to Columbus, hoping that Daniel's "pending" performance in Columbus in  April will become a reality.  I've spent the majority of my "free time"  over the past year listening to Daniel's music and being constantly awed by it.  I was knocked out when I heard his reference to Red Donnely in "Cold Hard World", as I grew up near Daniel's birthplace and watched Red Donnely on the 6 o'clock news each night with my mother, watching things like the "Hostages In Iran" ordeal, so "Cold Hard World"  immediately hit home and I was able to find solace in his other songs as well.  I could go on for hours about the impact his music has on me, but I know better than to do that to strangers! 
No website or photo yet, I'm still somewhat new to all things cyber...but I'm glad I found your site.  Been listening to the new CD,  which is good, and  I'm sure will grow on me, like Sparklehorse took awhile to do....but nothing probably can ever compare to his classic "basement tapes".  His legacy could rest solely on those recordings,  but what's he doing now is still far better than the vast majority of what you may find at Sam Goody, etc.  My dream is that he will one day be produced by Tom Waits, or by  the also severely underrated Scott Walker.

other: I had the chance, and god was it a chance, to actually get to meet Daniel before his show at the Ottobar in Baltimore Md.  It was the 1st night of the club's new location and he played.  He signed the front of my booklet for the rare "Hi, How are You" cd that a friend of mine got for me in Texas last year.  I also converted all my Daniel Johnston cassettes that i bought from museumoflove.com to cdr.  what fun it is to drive at night and listen to my fav cd, "Songs Of Pain".
