However, as the music has evolved from a Western import into something uniquely Chinese, it has been shaped by the nation’s unique system and its relationship with the outside world. As it tracks the music's long journey from the Mao years to present day, this account considers the people and the events that have created Chinese rock's identity. Including interviews with musicians, journalists, and industry experts, this book demonstrates that Chinese rock may be ready to smash its guitars on the global stage.</p> <p><strong>Rock'n Roll Never Dies</strong></p>

    it is the book about Chinese rock written by Jon Campbell, formerly working as project manager for foreign affairs for Midi Festival in the beginning, later manager of SUBS and ygtwo.com, promoter for concerts and tours in China for canadian/US bands or jazz bands to play in China. Jon also was the drummer of Black Cat Bone and RandomKe. He lives now back in Canada.

    this is really a good source to read if you want to know about what's going on in China and rock music
