Monday, December 10, 2012

Jonathan Campbell talks about the evolution of rock and roll in China, and how it has evolved from a Western import into something uniquely Chinese. Red Rock looks at music's journey from the Mao years to present day, considering the people and the events that have created Chinese rock's identity.

Brian Cambell's book reminds me of a former English Professor of mine who had his own tale of rock and roll in China. It seems that during his stay as a visiting professor at Peking University this professor had the pleasure of hearing his own big song playing from the radios on the many bicycles around the city. The professor added that he never got any royalties. If Brian Cambell may have even interviewed him: HR Stoneback SUNY New Paltz, Englsih Department.
