Wu Bai & China Blue have been playing music together since 1992, and have built a loyal following that is with them to this day. Their music is melodic, insightful and kick-ass rock 'n roll. It touches the heart.
In the past, Wu Bai was know as The King of Live, but now he is called The Emperor of Rock, and for good reason. The band knows how to put on a show and they could be called the Rolling Stones of Asia, but I bet Wu Bai would prefer they be compared to Led Zeppelin. He has the same qualities that make Jimmy Page so brilliant: soulful guitar leads based in blues, melodies that are ever interesting, time structures that keep you guessing. This is not formulistic music; the band is ever creative and innovative.
I've seen Wu Bai & China Blue perform in stadiums and pubs, each venue offering a different perspective, but the best for sure are the pub gigs. Pure adrenaline rush. I could have saved myself a lot of money if I hadn't seen Wu Bai in the movie "Tide & Tide," but after that I bought a music CD and there was no turning back. Somehow it was meant to be.

This is just a beginning, there are literally hundreds of websites for Wu Bai & China Blue. I'm adding to this number only because Wu Bai 's music is cool and he is perfectly hou leng.
