Lecture & Book-signing with author Jonathan Campbell

JonathanCampbellMr. Campbell lived in Beijing from 2000-2010 mainly among the local rock scene as drummer, chronicler, promoter, booster, agent and more. His writing has appeared in a range of international publications; he’s put dozens of bands from around the world on Chinese tours and taken Chinese bands to Europe and the US; attended international music conferences as part of China delegations; and preached the yaogun (Chinese rock) gospel at music and literary festivals, schools, universities and venues around the world. He has been called a “stalwart of the Chinese music scene”; “an instrumental behind-the-scene (figure)”; “the busiest man in Beijing showbiz” and “the Dr. [Norman] Bethune of China’s rock scene.” He lives in Toronto. Red Rock: The Long, Strange March of Chinese Rock & Roll is his first book. For more, visit jonathanWcampbell.com.
