Wang Fei sings “Don’t break my heart” (Black Panther) in 1999

Hi folks,

something I found on another blog site, also called “Rock in China” (at blogspot):

A little bit about the history: The song “Don’t break my heart” is originally from Black Panther, written by ex-vocalist Dou Wei, who at that time was still together with the famous pop singer Wang Fei (who is singing here). Though later they broke off, as Wang Fei discovered that Dou Wei had another lover. (see update)

[UPDATE] Remark by Kaisi:

    I just read your rather muddled entry on Dou Wei and the song ‘don’t break my heart’ – When he wrote that song he certainly wasn’t with Wang Fei, I promise you. DW and I have been old buddies since the early 90’s. May be you want to get those facts right. And, by the way, that video link is defunct!

    All the best, Kaisi

Ok, so we got some more info.

Metalhistory – coming to China

Hi folks,

Guess what, the guys behind the upcoming DVD production “Metal around the Globe” (Bangers Production from Canada) interviewed yesterady afternoon and checked information about the Chinese metal scene. They are going to come to China end of October to do some on-site research and will definitely film some gigs.

Check out their website:

The scene in Shanghai – GigShanghai

What’s up with the scene in Shanghai and who is talking there?

  • The main “live music” venue in town, Tanghui, was shut down due to lack of license.
  • The “other”, Yuyintang, has not returned any of our emails about the canceling this weekend of the Brain Failure show.
  • Live Bar, an old favorite, temporarily shut down before being taken over by one of us (Brad — grand opening October 6th).
  • We are the only consistent ones putting on live gigs in this town — are we, perhaps, to confident about it? No — we’re just certain that Wednesday nights, our GigLive nights, at BonBon are the best thing, rock-wise, during the entire week.

Well, according to
