As with other talented but troubled artists, Daniel Johnston fights a daily battle with the chronic mental illness that has plagued him nearly his entire life. However Johnston has carved out a respectable, influential career as a singer/songwriter of extraordinary talent which has grown since his first crudely recorded cassette was released in 1980.
