Indeed.

Another thing I personally owe to Danel's music... if it hadn't been for his association with Daniel Johnston, I would never have discovered the wonderful Sparklehorse albums ("It's a Wonderful Life" is my favorite).

So sad. Rest in peace, Mark.  sad

WOW...bummer. Such a nice guy. Shot himself in the heart?

Okay, so since the new record has yet to come out, maybe "beautiful widow" as a bonus track would be suitable.

I hope it makes the album...your cover deserves a wider audience...

Here's Mark and Dan's duet from the 2008 tour:
