Rodriguez, the legendary singer-songwriter known only by his surname, is a self-taught guitarist. He began performing in bars and clubs around the city of Detroit in the 1960s, as the city suffered post-industrial urban decay. It was there that he recorded two studio albums,Cold Fact in 1969 and Coming from Reality in 1971 released on Sussex records.

Rodriguez is enjoying the collective heartfelt dream of a musician, beating the odds and finding a place in music history. With a music career that has with stood the test of time; the story of Rodriguez is one of sweet success.
