Sixto "Sugar Man" Rodriguez concert (video)

Official Movie (; Pfc. Sandoval, CC Liu, Wisdom Quarterly

Top 49 Influential Men: Sixto (
Searching for Sugar Man tells the incredible true story of Sixto Rodriguez, known as "Sugar Man," the greatest '70s rock icon who never was.

After being discovered in a Detroit bar, Rodriguez's sound struck two renowned producers, and they signed a recording deal. But when the album bombed, the singer disappeared into obscurity.

A bootleg recording found its way into white apartheid South Africa and over the next two decades, he became a phenomenon as big as Bob Dylan and every other icon of that generation.

The film follows the story of two South African fans who set out to find out what really happened to their music hero. Documentary 2012 Canfield Pictures AB. Director: Malik Bendjelloul.
