They are the 'God Band' of the HK music industry. No group can be as legendary as them. I was saddened by Kar Kui's sudden death. My favorite song is actually 'Hei Foon Nei' from him.

I was too young to like the band when they were around. But I still remember them because I remember everyone crying when the lead singer died.

Can anyone tell me, where there brothers in this band? I remember someone saying something about that before. And which one of the guys was it?

I think they're pretty cool in general. I really like their old songs. Don't see a lot of rock bands in HK these days. It's quite sad.

They are the only rock group in HK that makes really good music. Wong Kar Koi's voice and Paul Wongs great solos. Paul Wong's guitar playing is really pretty crazy. I just love the solo in "Hoi Fut Tin Hong". I must say the 4 members of Beyond are the pride of Asian Rock. I'm proud to be their fan.

Beyond's concert BEYOND THE STORY LIFE will take place on January 27. The five show concert series has long been sold out. The organizer has officially announced the addition of a final show on February 1 yesterday. Beyond joked that they had to invite headline news figure Granny Lo to their show. Ka Keung said, "The first invitee to the show of course is Granny Lo. She is so powerful that she can stop the Link from going public, how can we not invite her. I will make a gold toothpick for her, but will tell her to not to randomly knock on people's tiger heads because our security is tight. Being disorderly will get her kicked out." Then Paul Wong Koon Chung said, "If she is looking for a release, she can come on stage at anytime. I will ask Sai Wing to let her play the drums for five minutes. All the rage will be gone afterward. Just don't use Sai Wing's drum sticks for toothpicks."

Beyond's six show Hong Kong Coliseum concert series organizer East Asia Entertainment has announced that it has donated the proceeds of 500 HK$200 tickets from the January 27th and another 500 from the 28th show to South Asia tsunami victims.

Wong Ka Keung said, "Don't think that the HK$200 seats are too far back. We will definitely take care of you and guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised."

Beyond has been forgetting to eat and sleep in preparation for their end of the month concert. However they are still passionate about charity. According to their assistant their dream of building a school in remote areas of China will soon come true. The elementary school has been tentatively named "Rock and Roll School". Paul Wong Kon Chung even drew a design for the school.

Wong Ka Keung expressed, "The location has schools but because the locals are poor the facilities are simpler. Right now we are building a better equipped school to provide a decent place of learning for the children. If all goes well, the school should be completed this year. The three of us will survey the environment and see what else the school needs. I want to start a music school for more people to study music."

Beyond's six show concert series will take off tomorrow at the Hong Kong Coliseum. Two nights ago they rehearsed with their guests Tat Ming and Tai Chi. Earlier a fan has threatened to commit suicide to keep Beyond from disbanding. Sai Wing honestly said that he has received letters from unhappy fans. "Finally he said after listening to our song he forgot it (suicide). HE even said that luckily he had our spirit." Sai Wing also asked fans not to do anything silly. "A lot can be easily resolved. In life if it doesn't work make it work. Everyone has a depressed, hurt and painful times. Earlier three years ago I lost my girlfriend. At the time I numbed myself with work. The pain was truly deep and unforgettable. I still miss her now."

As for costumes, Paul Wong Koon Chung joked, "I will play a genie of the lamp with special effects. I will have smoke before me. We will even get David Copperfield. This time we can truly merge a band with magic. (Have you consulted Anthony Wong Yiu Ming?) I am afraid I can't play in his clothes. We have found an image (consultant) and definitely trust him." Brother Ming said, "Wow! Beyond doesn't have to ask me, I am just a flower vase."

BTW, I'm trying to download the January 16 Jade Solid Gold show with Beyond but nobody's seeding!! Somebody help when you read this. Come to my rescue now!

Beijing fans weep at Beyond's goodbye

Posted Image

Hong Kong's romantic-metal all stars Beyond kicked off the first leg of their China tour in Beijing on Friday night at the Capital Gymnasium. The concert was a way for the band to say goodbye to their fans after 20 years in the music business.

The show was a constant high with die-hard fans passionately waving bright glow sticks, screaming the lyrics for"Love You Really" and calling for one encore after another.

The guest performer, mainland rock band Panther, were blitzed by Beyond's bright aura and had to contend with ear-shattering cries for Beyond to return to the stage.

The farewell show came at a cost, however, that event organizers say was somewhere around 4 million yuan, about 500, 000 US dollars. The performance was titled"Beyond Story", and was designed to trace the growth of the band and late former lead singer and guitarist Koma Wong.

Koma Wong's immortal statement"life is not about what you've gained, but what you've done with it" appeared on the big screens of the stage, followed by the song"Amani" themed on human rights, politics, peace, and protests, and their masterpiece"Goodbye Ideals".

Steve Wong, a current member of Beyond and bother of Koma Wong, said to the audience at the end of the show that they shouldn't be sad and that they would go on to make great music as individuals after the split.

Finally the mandarin song"Go with Me In All Your Life" lowered the curtain, leaving the fans in an emotional state.

BEYOND's Final Autograph Session, They Try and Satisfy Their Fans Request As Much As Possible

It has been five years since BEYOND has held an autograph session. Yesterday, they were ready to have their last autograph session before they broke up. It was for their CD/VCD/DVD "Beyond The Story Live 2005". Many of the fans that arrived for this event cherished every moment. Fans began lining up as early as 6AM! They were determined to get the autograph, some even mentioning that it will be worth lots in the future!

Paul says, "I'm flattered by how many fans we have and how many have showed up today. Those who could not make it, I hope that one of the three of us will be seen walking by on the streets and we will give the autograph then. This is the last signature meeting. A lot of our fans could not avoid crying. But they didn't worry too much, because something like this was bound to happen. The only thing I could do was hand them the poster and urge them not to cry......."

Beyond is the best ever and Wong Ka Kui is one of my fav singers of all time without him Beyond isn't as good. Wong Ka Kui just wrote lots of good songs and his voice is perfect. Its sad what happened to him but there songs are classics and best ever. Most people from HK and even China know like at least 1 or 2 of there old songs like "Really Love you" is just the best.

Beyond is a very famous rock band in Hong Kong, founded in 1983. Like their hero Sam Hui, they have always identified with the people of Hong Kong, reflected in their songs about social issues, politics, and peace. The Wong Ka Kui composed 海闊天空 Boundless Oceans Vast Skies is probably their best known work.


Beyond in 1993Beyond is:

Wong Ka Kui vocals, guitar
Wong Ka Keung vocals, bass
Paul Wong vocals, lead guitar
Yip Sai Wing drums
Forming in 1983, the original members were Wong Ka Kui, Yip Sai Wing and Lau Chi Yuen. Ka Kui's younger brother Wong Ka Keung joined in 1984, and Paul Wong was the last to join in 1985. Other members for brief periods have included Chan See On and Kubert Leung. Lau Chi Yuen left the band in 1989 to pursue studies in the US (though he made a return later playing instruments and helping to produce 1998's Surprise).

Beyond were initially part of the "band boom" which occurred in Hong Kong in the 1980s, alongside other groups such as Tai Chi, Fundamental, Blue Jeans, Tat Ming and Radias.

In June 1993, Wong Ka Kui passed away after falling into a coma, as a result of head injuries sustained falling from a broken stage on a game show in Japan. He was only 31 years old.

The Japanese will never understand, for us and for Hong Kong, that the incident was not merely about the loss of an artiste. It was about losing a music revolutionary, and an age of time. - Paul Wong on the death of Ka Kui
At the time of his passing, they were signed to Japanese record label Amuse, having already released several Japanese language singles and an album. The following album, This Is Love I, initially intended to be the first of two parts, was released the day after Wong Ka Kui's death.

There was debate as to whether the remaining three members would continue the band without him, but speculation ended when they reappeared on the 30th of November 1993 in Hong Kong at the Composer's Tribute Night concert.

The post-Ka Kui albums have a more 'alternative' feel to the progressive rock sound that preceded them. 1997's Please Let Go of Your Hands (Hong Kong post-97 sentiment abounding) and 1995's grunge-inspired Sound are examples of this.

At present, the band has parted ways as each member pursues their own solo careers. They played their last concert in Hong Kong under the Beyond name on 1st February 2005, before embarking on a world tour, including stops in Vancouver, Canada and various cities in mainland China. Afterwhich, the band is officially disbanded.
