Finding 'Sugar Man': Rodriguez Reflects on a Crazy Year with a Hollywood Ending

Musician Sixto Rodriguez shares what it was like to be the subject of Malik Bendjelloul's documentary. The film chronicles two South Africans who set out to find out what happened to a popular rock star from the 1970s. Rodriguez also lets us know what drew him to being a musician and why he gave it up in 1974. 

On his reception and fan base in South Africa, Rodriguez added, "It blew my mind, yeah it was mind blowing to see all that audience and young bloods. Africans are my fan base, we have a global audience and Australia took me first, with them touring me first and it was all well and good."
