Members of rock band 20088 Zhang Yi Han (guitar), Jing Sheng Hao (guitar), Libo Chen (bass) and Guo Xin Yue (drums) (L-R) pose for photographers backstage after they performed during the closing ceremony for the Olympic culture festival in Beijing July 15, 2007. The band's manager claims 20088, whose members are seven-years-old, to be the youngest professional rock band in China. The band has performed in some Olympic related events as all of the members will reach the lucky age of eight in 2008, the year of the Beijing Olympics. [Reuters]
