A number of musicians paid tribute to the late singer-songwriter Daniel Johnston. The Austin-based artist, 58, died Tuesday night after suffering a heart attack.

"RIP Daniel Johnston", Beck wrote on Twitter, sharing a link to his cover of Johnston's song "True Love Will Find You in the End."

Songwriter and producer Jack Antonoff said he will miss Johnston, describing him as a brilliant story teller and songwriter who carried him and his friends through many over night drives in the van.

"So much to learn from daniel in the way he shared fearlessly," Antonoff tweeted.

"Today our hearts are heavy with yesterday's passing of Daniel Johnston. His unique songwriting voice, so pure and so direct, spoke to us deeply. It is quite safe to say there will never be another like him and thankfully, his music will play on," Death Cab for Cutie wrote on Twitter.

A documentary titled The Devil and Daniel Johnston, released in 2005, deals with Johnston's mental health struggles.
