Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.



Eric Clapton follows, Sir Elton John, the late James Brown, Black Eyed Peas, and others to China’s business and entertainment hub, Shanghai.

January 20th, Eric Clapton will perform in front of patrons for 1,800 ($220) to 300 yuan ($28).

The Rolling Stones cleaned up in Shanghai…but mostly in front of expatriates, indicating that Chinese, even Shanghainese are not too familiar with the bands and individuals of the 60’s and 70’s.

Another obstacle is priced so high a stairway to heaven might be the only way some Chinese could pay.

Mariah Carey had a concert canceled because the event organizers could not sell enough tickets.

I am not sure that a 60+ ex-rock star is going to have much appeal to the new China.

What do you think?

Please consider nominating PanAsianBiz for Best New Blog Started in 2006 or Best Topic Blog by going to the Seventh Annual Weblog Awards – the 2007 Bloggies. January 10th is the deadline.

Talk to Bill and others about their experiences raising bi-cultural Japanese-American kids.

  • I think Eric Clpaton will draw there. There seems to be more of an appeal to the rock scene then popular artists.

    It really is amazing to see the walls coming down though.
