If you live in Detroit, chances are you've seen "Sugar Man," as the rest of the world now knows singer-songwriter Sixto Rodriguez. You've heard him play a set at Park Bar or the Old Miami, watched him tip back a cup of coffee or a pint at Motor City Brewing Works.

The Southwest Detroit musician, whose music made him a superstar in South Africa while he unknowingly lived a blue-collar existence in the Motor City, is the subject of a new documentary, "Searching For Sugar Man."

"60 Minutes" also aired a long interview with Rodriguez (featuring shots of him all over the city!) and journalist Bob Simon. Now, partner site 60minutesovertime.com is airing outtakes of the singer's live musical sessions with the camera crew. Producer Michael Gavshon grew up in South Africa, where he remembers Rodriguez' songs being "the anthem to a generation."

The bonus footage is shot at the Old Miami bar in the Cass Corridor, where he played a set last month.


Watch Rodriguez talk
about the ideals that fueled his protest songs, the importance of recruiting more "girls" to run for office and the emotions he felt when he discovered that his failed music career was in fact a huge success on HuffPost Live.

Listen to Rodriguez's music below.

  • Sixto Rodriguez - Hate Street Dialogue

    Lyrics Woman please be gone You've stayed here much too long Don't you wish that you could cry Don't you wish I would die Seamy, seesaw kids Childwoman on the skids The dust will choke you blind The lust will choke your mind I kiss the floor, one kick no more The pig and hose have set me free I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree I kiss the floor, one kick no more The pig and hose have set me free I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree The inner city birthed me The local pusher nursed me Cousins make it on the street They marry every trick they meet A dime, a dollar they're all the same When a man comes in to bust your game The turnkey comes, his face a grin Locks the cell I'm in again. I kiss the floor, one kick no more The pig and hose have set me free I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree I've tasted Haight street's hanging tree...

  • Silver Words by Sixto Rodriguez (Original Version)

    SILVER WORDS Baby I ain't joking And it's not what I'm smoking I really think you're nice Don't think I'm kidding And don't think that I'm bidding If silver words are your price But oh if you could see The change you've made in me That the angels in the skies Were envious and surprised That anyone as nice as you Would chance with me But oh if you could see The change you've made in me That the angels in the skies Were envious and surprised That anyone as nice as you Would chance with me Just giving some credit to the original author of this great song. www.sugarman.org
