The Foreign Ministry confirmed on Monday the detention of a Canadian citizen accu上海419论坛品茶微信

sed of involvement in a drug-related case in Yantai, a coastal city in Shandong province.

Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang said at a daily news conference that a drug-related case in上海419论坛

volving foreign students is under investigation and one of the people involved in the case is a Canadian citizen.

上海419论坛品茶微信Geng also said that the case has nothing to do with a recent drug-related case in Xuzhou, Jian

gsu province, where a police crackdown resulted in the arrest of 19 people, including 16 foreigners.

He said public security authorities had made consular notificati上海419论坛

China will safeguard the legitimate rights of the parties concerned in accordance with law, Geng added.

The new case came as tensions continue in Sino-Canadian上海419论坛品茶微信

relations, sparked last year by the detention of Huawei’s chief financial offic

er, Meng Wanzhou, in Vancouver at the request of the United States, which is seeking her extradition.

Tony Award-winning Broadway musical An American in Paris made its debut in Beijing

This song is even older than some of the people who are watching the show,” the bassist Ou says in the sho

上海419论坛w. “Witnessing the evolution of Chinese rock music is a fascinating experience. We are proud that we are part of it as The Face.”

Western rock music first gained popularity in China in the 1980s with a performance given by the rock singer-songwriter Cui Jian on May 9, 1986, during a concert at Beijing Workers’ Stadium. At the packed venue, the then 25-year上海419论坛

-old Cui performed his most well-known song, Nothing to My Name, which opened a chapter in China’s rock music story at a time when few Chinese knew what rock ‘n’ roll was.

上海419论坛品茶微信The song also marked the start of a journey that would later make Cui China’s godfather of rock ‘n’ roll. It also ushered in a go

lden era of original Chinese rock bands influenced by the Western music genre and expressing themselves in their mother tongue. The first

rock bands included the heavy metal band Tang Dynasty, founded in 1988, the pop-rock band Black Panther, formed in 1987, and The Face.上海419论坛

“Material possessions like big houses and fast cars were the last things on our mind,” Ou says. “Instead, we were hungry for roc

k music and found any possible way to get the latest music from Western bands. Compared with young bands today, we had few opportunities to perfo

rm onstage because the audiences were smaller and there were few live house venues. But we were very happy because we truly loved the music.”上海419论坛品茶微信

In 1994 Ou, then 23, performed as a bassist at the Chinese Rock Power concert at the Hong Kong Arena. Bringing toget

her He Yong, Dou Wei, the former lead vocalist of Black Panther, Zhang Chu and Tang Dynasty, the concert was the first showcase for musicians from

the mainland to perform in Hong Kong. It stunned Hong 上海419论坛Kong audiences and created the momentum for a wave of rock music to wash across the country.

“Looking back, those legendary musicians and their works are still inspiring for the young

bands,” Ou says. “They shaped the golden era of China’s rock music. The band members are different people and enjoy different m

usic styles. They come together and contribute t上海419论坛品茶微信o the band as one person. That’s the most interesting part of being in a band.”

Then with the birth of Modern Sky, one of the country’s biggest indie labels, which former rock singer-songwriter Shen Lihui

founded in 1997 in Beijing as a way to distribute both his own and his friends’ music, more and more indie band

s emerged in the country while developing the上海419论坛品茶微信ir own unique styles. The punk-rock band New Pants, the pop-rock band

Queen Sea Big Shark and the heavy rock band Miserable Faith were among the most-watched bands then.

Liang scored a 453 in 2016 and a 469 in 2018 — good enough marks to be enrolled by a university — but he gave up the opportunity.

Liang said he felt great pressure from outside as some people questioned his beha
