You may not know it yet, but Rodriguez is a living legend. In a new movie titled Searching for Sugar Man the story of his incredible music - and where it's been hiding - is explored and unveiled. The film has earned considerable praise for the story it tells, at Sundance Film Festival and beyond. Meanwhile, the man himself is being rediscovered all over the place - moving audiences once again with his incredible music and infectious charm.
I had the honor of sitting front and center at a Seattle cabaret venue two years ago, to watch Rodriguez woo an unsuspecting crowd with his legendary music. Believe you me, the man is for real. If you're unfamiliar with Rodriguez's music and his amazing story, you'll want to make sure to check out About.com Guide to Long Island, Linda Tagliaferro's recent interview with him.
