The documentary Searching for Sugar Man opens in Detroit on Friday, August 10th, 2012, telling the bizarre true story of Rodriguez. Haven’t heard of Rodriguez? He is a musician who was found in the Detroit area in the late 60s/early 70s, a protest crooner not unlike Bob Dylan with a smooth yet powerful voice. He was a complete flop in the states, although he was remembered fondly by all those who knew him.
