Watch an exclusive clip from acclaimed new documentary Searching For Sugar Man right now on Q.
The documentary, which received a flawless five star review from us, opens in cinemas next Thursday (26 July) and tells the remarkable and bizarre tale of Detroit singer-songwriter Rodriguez.
Dropped after his two albums flopped at the start of the 1970s, not only does the film chart how the singer dropped into obscurity with many believing he had killed himself onstage, but it also tells the curious tale of how, via a bootleg, his records actually found success in South Africa, where he became as popular as artists like The Beatles or Elvis.
The clip above asks what happened to Rodriguez's royalties after his albums, Cold Fact and Coming From Reality sold in large numbers, while he still lived in obscurity and near poverty in the US.
