As BeijingDaze and Beijing Gig Guide have reported, Saturday night China rock legend He Yong is hosting a benefit concert for Liang Heping, another original star of the scene and, as Jonathan W. Campbell reports, the musician responsible for the first notes of “Nothing To My Name” at the 1986 Let the World Be Full of Love Concert. Liang was in a car accident last summer and the rock community is all pitching in to help him out. Besides He Yong, there will be appearances by Secondhand Rose, Thin Man, Liquid Oxygen Can, Ma Tiao and more. There will also be a silent auction with memorabilia from Ding Wu, Hao Yun, Xie Tianxiao, Reflector, Twisted Machine and others with all proceeds also going directly to Liang Heping. Reminiscent of when the China rock scene was literally 12 young men crammed into a tiny room listening to tapes or playing guitar, it warms our corporate-shriveled hearts to know that in the end, everyone is always watching out for each other.
