There are so amazing twists and turns to the Rodriguez story it's an example of life truly being stranger than fiction. From a cultural compass point of view, that which guides us not only morally but also thru a cultural lens for all humanity, Rodriguez is a story of Triumph of the Human Spirit. I'm going to unfold his story on the blog slowly but you can check him out yourself.
He's is one fine human being. Here's just a taste from the London paper recently : Event Info (from the Apollo theater in London site today when we went for tickets)
'After the huge success of the BAFTA and Oscar award-winning film Searching for Sugar Man, Rodriguez returns to the UK for a rare live concert with his band.
'When the main set concluded to rapturous applause, Rodriguez stepped forward to the microphone and simply said: “You’re welcome. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege.” Which is exactly the way we felt. I’ve never experienced anything like it at any gig I’ve ever been to.' London Culture
It's about gratitude, truth and respect. Rarely do we get blessed like this . . . .so this is for your listening enjoyment.
