- "The ultimate Beijing insider" (Jan Wong, Red China Blues, Jan Wong's China, Beijing Confidential)
- A "stalwart of the Chinese music scene" (China Music Radar);
- An "instrumental behind-the-scene (figure)" (Beijing Daze);
- "Hutong guru" (Rockinchina.com);
- The "busiest man in Beijing showbiz" (CLUAS.com)
- "The Dr. [Norman] Bethune of China's rock scene" (Tian Jianhua, of punk band Reflector);
- Kang Mao, vocalist for garage-punk band Subs, said, in the documentary about her band, Rock Heart Beijing, "He's a good guy. He's smart, and knows how to drive a car. He is able to bear hardship."
After ten and a half years, he left Beijing in late 2010 and currently lives in Toronto.
