He pretty much battle depression his whole career. His biggest moment was when Kurt Cobain wore a T-Shirt Daniel had designed (the white one with the frog on it) for a Rolling Stone advert. The song I posted is a cover of one of his biggest “hits” ” walking the cow”. Log in to Reply muspelhem 9/12/2019 - 2:56 amAnother victim of psychiatry.

He was never real thin but when he went on the meds. he got real big, combined with being a pack or 2 a day smoker. Hopefully his family does something with his extensive art collection.

Daniels struggles with pharmacology was long drawn-out and public, and we knew it was coming for a long time, especially after his father passed, but that still don’t take any of the hurt away.

Then came a turning point.Five years into the usage the ****** company refused to renew the prescription again, citing health concerns if use continued. The withdrawal very nearly landed her in the grave and as it is she only exists. The recovery is abysmal.I still remember her pleading with me to go on meds as she explained how the things had worked ever so well for years. But I already knew she was loosing ground in the real world. I already knew from other peoples experiences that benefits, if any, would be fleeting and later followed by horrendous side effects.
