It’s not often that an artist plays a sold-out, 5,000 capacity venue at the age of 70. It’s even less common that an artist does this feat having only released two studio albums that, initially, sold poorly.
But, that is what Rodriguez did at Hammersmith Apollo on Friday.
Rodriguez (birth name Sixto Rodriguez) is a Detroit-born singer-songwriter who was thought to be the next Bob Dylan (a frequent comparison), but his albums sold very little on their initial release in the early 70’s.
I got a big dose of “watch where you are going!” energy this week. I was awakened to my assumptive nature. Here I thought I was being invisible, and BOOM! my personhood was snagged.
I don’t feel sorry for myself, just more aware.
In this world of “no privacy” I am reminded to mind my own business.
Not a bad thing really.
My first breath was the promise of my last.
Not deciding is deciding.
