Searching for a Great Sugar Man Follow-Up? Rolling Stone Has It

Before Argo, both in real life and at the 84th Annual Academy Awards, there was Searching for Sugar Man. The winner of the Documentary Feature prize is just about the most entertaining in-search-of doc since Michael Moore was in his GM, George W.-tracking prime.

Rolling Stone associate editor Andy Greene delightfully keeps the vibe going with today’s “10 Things You Didn’t Know…” feature. God love Sixto Rodriguez, a guy who opted not to attend the Oscars and then nonchalantly skipped his moment of Academy triumph from afar:

“I was asleep when it won, but my daughter Sandra called to tell me,” Rodriguez said. “I don’t have TV service anyway.”

Ha ha. Rodriguez is now quite possibly the richest man in America without cable. Read the full RS piece here.
