An iconic songwriter and "outside" artist, died of a heart attach at the age of 58.
The man lived a really, really brutal life, wracked by mental illness. But he took that pain and made some beautiful art out of it.
Here is me, playing one of my favorite songs of his: "Worried Shoes" in tribute.

Sorry about the sound quality. Not sure how to fix it.

Hi Poptodd.

its a great tribute and very fitting. Dont worry about the sound quality - it wasnt a problem for Daniel.

Yep - he was a beautiful soul.

"Some things Last A Long Time" gets me everytime i listen to it.  RIP DJ
