A world away from the quiet streets outside, the boisterous crowd had been on its feet all night, rocking and singing along with the band of foreigners and Chinese. When the last 10-minute blues jam was nearing its end, the cigarette lighters flicked on and the audience started chanting "Trigger, Trigger." For tonight's crowd, and for the hundreds of rock 'n' roll performers or would-be performers he has taught across China, Vic Trigger is a star. His roadies are all U.S. Embassy employees.
