Once thought dead (1970's), turned out to be alive and in Detroit.................bizarre true story.

Sixto Rodriguez
Searching for Sugar Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Searching for Sugar Man is a 2012 Swedish–British documentary film directed and written by Malik Bendjelloul, which details the efforts of two Cape Town fans in the late 1990s, Stephen 'Sugar' Segerman and Craig Bartholomew Strydom, to find out whether the rumoured death of American musician Sixto Rodriguez was true, and, if not, to discover what had become of him. Rodriguez's music, which never took off in the United States, had become wildly popular in South Africa, but little was known about him there.
+30 years after his South Afrikan rise to popularity (unbeknownst to him) he went there and performed 30 sold out concerts. Then gave most of it away to friends and family, living in the same run down house in Detroit.

A must see movie.
