One of the Wu Di Five Emperors, he is best known for inventing a number of musical instruments including drums, bells and wind instruments.
Actually he did not so much invent them as order them to be invented by someone else. He was too busy riding around on his dragon.
He was popular for thousands of years, until one day the rock guitar sound was introduced to China and that was the end of his album sales.
