Capetonians pen the journey to find musician Sixto Rodriguez in new book

25 September 2015 9:38 AM

Two Cape Town-based men at the centre of the search for musician Sixto Rodriguez have written the story of their journey.

The two men at the centre of the search for musician Sixto Rodriguez have written the story of their journey.

Stephen “Sugar” Segerman and Craig Bartholomew-Strydom authored the book "Sugar Man – the life, death and resurrection of Sixto Rodriguez", after the success of the documentary film that was made about their quest.

The pair share the tale of what they call an 'irresistible story" about Rodriguez, who was rumoured to have killed himself on stage.

Listen to the full conversation (with John Maytham standing in) on CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

The (Swedish-British) documentary won a number of awards – including the best Documentary Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards.

It followed the efforts of two Cape Town fans in the late 1990s who wanted to find out whether the reported death of American musician Sixto Rodriguez was true and, if not, to discover what had become of him.

Their book will be officially launched on Monday 28th September at La Parada in Bree Street and reveals the answers they found about the musician on their journey.

Rodriquez will be performing in South Africa in January and February 2016 and the tickets are already for sale on Computicket.
