Have you seen ‘Searching for Sugar Man’?
I have, yes. I thought it was interesting how a man could be a legend across the world and not even know it. The South Africans knew nothing about him, so they created a myth of him. I do think the documentarians oversold his music, though. Rodriguez was not better than The Beatles or Dylan. He provided the soundtrack for their cultural revolution, like certain artists did for America in the late 60’s.
