Blowing in the Chinese wind
David doing one of his stunts for his Sprite cm which he flew to Thailand to film (zoe! zoe!). The Korean director praised him & encouraged him to go into movies. The cm song is What's Love & David changed some of the words like he did with Rain last yr. I really really really wanna see this cm, so excited, thk god its not like those over the top soda cms where there r so many stars. Here David is the one and only star cos he is the best.
David is quoted again as wanting to retire from music & go into movies, & sum wondered why as he is not exactly fading away in popularity. In this interview he said that he is getting more & more disappointed in modern chinese music & felt that its not improving at all. Its more & more abt the packaging and not the songs. He felt music is now like a business just for earning money & becoming famous.
David also felt calling the current trend of using chinese instruments in pop music 'blowing the chinese wind' is a joke. He said, "Chinese people should be chinese, so what sort of chinese wind are we blowing?" David said listening to Cui Jian when he was 15, he was surprised that his songs sounded chinese without using any chinese instruments. He said chinese people dun always have to wear cheongsum to appear chinese.
I dun know who is Cui Jian but here's a pix of him with Wu Bai. But David oso said he will definitely come out with a few more albums before retiring to do movies. Other news is David's father has come out with a book. I will post more abt it maybe tomorrow as too tired to find out more.
