‘60 Minutes’ to explore the great myth of ‘Sugar Man’

“Searching for Sugar Man” first opened in late July and arrived in Atlanta early last month (it’s still playing at the Tara).

And the incredible story of ‘70s singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez, continues to gain traction.

On Sunday (at 7 p.m., depending upon football), CBS’ “60 Minutes” correspondent Bob Simon will spotlight Rodriguez and director Malik Bendjelloul.

It’s the latest high-profile notice for Rodriguez, who performed on the “Late Show with David Letterman” in August, appeared at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island, and in November, will embark on a tour of the U.K. (an American run is expected as well). Also, on Oct. 18, NPR’s “World Café” will air a “Searching for Sugar Man” special.

The film’s soundtrack is also available; here is a song to get you in a Sugar Man state of mind.
