Day 433: Sugar Man, Rodriguez

So one of my artist biographies is on the fascinating life of Sixto Rodriguez who became famous for his music in South Africa and Australia but was unknown in his own country of the USA. Bizarrely it was rumoured that he had committed suicide shortly before the release of his second album. However this was later disproven by a group of determined African fans tracked down the singer in 1990. The story was so interesting that the whole affair was made into a movie called Searching for Sugar Man which was released in 2013 and won an Oscar for best documentary feature that same year.
