Overheard at Booth 2: Scott Joplin

Niall Carter says, "I hope no one thinks I'm a giant wanker, but to be honest, I had no idea that he was black.  Does that make me a wanker?  Hell, all I know is that I love ragtime.  'The Entertainer'

"And no one knows, he also wrote two operas.    He also played mandolin as well as piano.  And he died from dementia in a madhouse at the age of 48 from syphilis.  Which frankly, was pretty damn punk, if you ask me!"
