15 Biggest Musical Comebacks
OK, maybe 16: Kylie, Johnny Cash, Justin Timberlake, Cher, Green Day, Cee Lo, more
"Searching For Sugar Man" didn't just earn a 2013 Academy Award: the documentary helped to relaunch the career of a folk-rock musician who was thought to be literally dead. Not to spoil too much of the tale, the songwriter put out a limited amount of material in the early '70s and then disappeared from the game. Unknown to him, South African music fans became huge supporters of his two studio albums, without him having ever set foot in the country. Today, Sixto Rodriguez is very much alive and is touring across the globe, with his album re-issued so that all can enjoy.
