Probably my favorite Rodriguez song here....



re-read the last post and search for his documentary. Fuggin awesome. He got screwed out of profit from 500 THOUSAND ALBUMS SOLD... his record label didn't inform him, or pay him for his popularity in South Africa ( during the apartheid ) . He sold less than 50 albums in his time in America.. and he lost his record label. They robbed him so hard, yet he remained the most humble dude..
 Quoting: Master of Nothing


His story reminds me of Nick Drake.



Nick Drake wasn't really ever known until after he passed away, and also quite humble I believe. I suppose history tells us that there are many people through the ages whom are largely 'unsung' during their lifetimes. For example, during his life, Vincent Van Gogh only ever sold one of his paintings. He sold his "Red Vineyard at Arles" in order to pay his rent. I often wonder how many weeks rent he could have earned if he tried selling his "Sunflowers" lol.
