As some of you know, one of my pet peeves is the misleading -- actually flat out WRONG -- bit in Don Goede's book Hi, How are You?: The Art, Life and Music of Daniel Johnston where he claims that Daniel's 1997 SXSW show was a chilling affair that "ended abruptly" with a heavily-medicated Daniel screaming "We're all gonna die!" to the crowd. As the "mastermind" behind that comeback gig, I take this error personally, especially since I contacted Don with a correction long before the book was reissued in its current edition.

Well, sure enough, I recently ran into yet another person who took the book's erroneous info as gospel, and that finally got me up off my butt to put the ENTIRE show on Youtube -- actually, it wasn't all that big a deal, since Dan and the Rhythm Rats only had time to work up 4 songs that afternoon (I tried to convince Daniel to go back out for an encore, like maybe "Why Don't We Do It In The Road" or something else they could pretty much wing on the spot, but he declined on the grounds that under those circumstances "Elvis wouldn't have done an encore.")

Parts one and two of the gig can be found at these URLs:

And please, if anyone can find anything even resembling "We're all gonna die!" among Daniel's comments on these clips, share it with me!

Tim Hamblin's excellent "Funeral Home" music video:

My own visual interpretation of the never-released 1982 number, "Grievances/Greensleeves":

And a clip of my old band with a cameo from Dan:

They laughed when I sat down at the piano.
They didn't think that I could play.
But their laughter turned to amazement,
When I got back up and carried it away...

For those with shorter attention spans, here's an edit of "I'm a Believer" from the show, combining live concert footage and footage from that afternoon's rehearsal:

And an unrelated clip of Dan covering Paul McCartney:
