60 Minutes on The Amazing Story of Rodriguez


Ever since 2008 Jeff has been telling us about and updating us on the story and music of Rodriguez, the Detroit singer-songwriter who put out a couple of outstanding albums in the early ’70s that failed commercially in the states but were huge hits in South Africa years later. Decades after he retired to a “normal” life, and rumors circulated in South Africa that he was dead, Rodriguez was brought to South Africa and treated as a hero. This incredible Cinderella story was documented in the critically-acclaimed documentary Searching For Sugar Man and for a tear-jerking piece on tonight’s episode of 60 Minutes.

If you missed the episode, you’ve gotta see the segment – trust us…

And here’s the “web-only” extras 60 Minutes has shared…
