“The whole amazing Rodriguez story has inspired many people in many ways,
specially with the film ‘Searching For Sugar Man’ bringing this moving story
of this unique musician and his music to a whole new international audience.
My good friend John Samson, an ex-South African now living in London, was
inspired a few years ago to write a series of short stories that take the
evocative lyrics from the ‘Cold Fact’ album as their starting point, and
then proceeds to weave a series of sweet, strange, touching, and sometimes
weird tales from this emerging writer’s extremely fertile brain. And always
looming in the background of these tales is that man in black with the hat
and the guitar, sometimes involved sometimes not, but always relevant, just
like Rodriguez.” – Stephen “Sugar” Segerman, August 2012
