One thought on “Daniel “Saucepan” Hartnett”
Apparently he wasn’t too fond of the nickname “Saucepan”. Dan Curtin I think passed along a story about an aspiring musician traveling to meet Daniel, and asking a stranger along the road the for assistance in finding “Saucepan Hartnett”. He received quite an earful from the stranger, who it turned out was Daniel himself.
