Lingo the Drifter

When ex-football player and bar owner Sam Sugarman re-christened his bar "Sugie's" as the Satire Lounge, Sugie put in a tiny stage and hired a guy called Lingo the Drifter to take over the club and play there. Lingo, an ex-businessman from Chicago who had dropped out, grown a beard and lived out of the back of a pickup truck, did a folksy Burl Ives/Pete Seeger type show that clicked with the local crowd.
