      • found: Wikipedia, May 16, 2014 (Sixto Diaz Rodriguez (also known as just Rodríguez or as Jesús Rodríguez); born July 10, 1942 in Detroit, Michigan; musician. His career initially proved short lived, with two little-sold albums in the early 1970s and two Australian concert tours. Unknown to him, however, his work became extremely successful and influential in South Africa, and continued to retain a loyal following in Australia. In 2012, the Sundance Film Festival hosted the premiere of the documentary film Searching for Sugar Man, by Swedish director Malik Bendjelloul, detailing the efforts of two South African fans to see if his rumored death was true and if not, to discover what had become of him. The film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 85th Academy Awards in 2013)
