Rodriguez performs on Letterman / by Matt Bomarr

This video gives me goosebumps. Seeing such an awesome, gentle man like Rodriguez finally getting the recognition he deserves is really really great. I had the pleasure of meeting this man a few years ago when he came to visit my place of employment after playing a show at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. After already having been familiar with his Cold Fact LP for a few years, I was extremely nervous to meet him. He was already a celebrity to me. I remember shaking his hand and telling him how much I loved his music, and he continued to shake my hand for a very long time, while very humbly saying "Aww, thanks a lot, man." It was a very memorable moment for me. You REALLY need to head out and check out the new documentary about him, Searching For Sugar Man. After you watch it, come back and watch this video again. You'll look at it in a completely different way. I promise.
