about

Rebellious, individualistic, and explosive, rock and roll seems incongruent with modern Chinese society. 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.

Jonathan Campbell immersed himself in China's rock scene as a drummer, writer, and promoter. He has brought Chinese acts to the world stage, and brought overseas bands to China. His writing has appeared in the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, and the South China Morning Post. He lives in Toronto, Ontario.
