Will release 5 albums each year (including cantonese, mandarin, english plus other languages)
- Calvin would like to sing with Gong Li .. he said he's her fan!
- Remus would like to work with Sandy Lam
- Edmund would like to work with Jacky Chan
- They are presently working on two albums at the same time, both the mandarin and the cantonese ones, and will probably be releasing them in end of March.
Not sure which one will come out first though.

oh dear....so the smoking thing is for real huh? and remus is supposed to have the best vocals of the three. won't the smoking affect it? thought he should know better. anyway, the smoking thing aside, i just saw a newspaper report confirming GH's jump to Rocks. so no need to speculate anymore i guess. hope this change is for the better.
Mabel(GH Mailing List) said:
What do you mean?? jumps to Rocks?? when was this article?? Under which newpaper?? Many people smokes and still can live up to a long age. Smoking isn't a shocking event .... (no offence to non-smokers), the only thing about smoking is that you might develop bad breath and teeth turning yellow if you are a long-term smoker...(oh god!) that is gross... so non-smokers, please stay away from cigrettes, cause' they will turn you into a toothless person in the end...hahah.. just joking!! Anyway.. this is a piece of interesting news?! should we consider this as "caught in the act"?! instead??

Ok, i saw it in last night's Lian He Wan Bao. just a small article that says that although the offical signing ceremony hasn't taken place yet, it's confirmed that they are joining Rock Records. so unless the newspaper got the wrong info, this should be for real this time, since they have pple in Rock records saying this and that in the article. among the things the Rock spokesman said was that they would give GH a lot of freedom, allowing them to produce their own album entirely, and will help them mature in their style, songs and image. the person said that GH will no longer be 'hopping' around so much.
but i sure hope that's not absolute. i like the dance image GH has cultivated over the years, and even if they turn mellow, i hope it's not a 360 degrees change. GH should still retain some of their liveliness and active image. it's their trademark afterall.
but the most important thing is the serious, really long term effects. and being singers, whereby the voice should be top priority, why risk it? the effects may not show right now, but who knows, ten years down the road, the effects may show....coughing, shortness of breath...how to sing?
i think whether singers or not, if anyone quits smoking or is considering it, you should do it for yourself above any other reason. it shows how much self-worth you have i think. if a singer retires 10 years later and the effects of smoking doesn't show till 20, 30 years later, i guess the fans wouldn't mind or be too concerned. but being the singer, if he or she loves himself or herself enough, he or she should start to take care of their health all through their lives. the fans may not see them in their old age, but they still have to live with themselves when they are 70, 80. life doesn't end at 50 or 60 when they retire, why make the following golden years hard for themselves?
ok, hope i've not offended anyone out there. i'm definitely anti-smoking but i'm NOT anti-smokers. i just hope more people would kick the habit by and by, whether singers or not, and fewer people would get addicted in the years to come.
