Personal Quote:

When I was a kid, probably nine, I used to bang around on the piano, making up horror movie themes. When I got a bit older, I'd be mowing my lawn and I'd make up songs and sing them. No one could hear me 'cause of the lawn mower.

Trivia:

At the 1992 MTV Music Awards, Kurt Cobain (who constantly touted Daniel in interviews) wore a Johnston T-shirt.

Star Sign:

Aquarius
