黄家驹(Wong Ka Kui,1962年6月10日-1993年6月30日)


籍贯广东台山,是1980年代初至1990年代初香港著名摇滚乐队Beyond的主音及吉他手,被人们称为一代音乐天才,也是香港公认的吉他顶尖高手 。他也是乐队低音吉他手黄家强的二哥,1993年于日本意外逝世。

个人背景

黄家驹自小与家人居住在苏屋邨。初中时代因朋友的潜移默化爱上欧西流行音乐,17岁时因拾到邻居搬家留下一支吉他[1],而令他与这种乐器结下不解之缘。于博允中学中五毕业后,黄家驹曾任职办公室助理、五金、冷气、水电工程、电视台布景员等,甚至加入乐队鼓手叶世荣任职的公司作保险经纪。[1] 


 

约1980年,黄家驹经琴行老板介绍下认识叶世荣,发觉彼此音乐兴趣相近,联同两位朋友邓炜谦(又名邬林,英文名William)及李荣潮一起组成乐队作音乐交流,此为Beyond的雏型。1983年Beyond正式组成,经过几次人事变动,期间低音吉他手黄家强及主音吉他手黄贯中先后加入,自资举办《永远等待演唱会》及推出盒带《再见理想》后,终获经理人垂青加入乐坛。


[编辑] 乐队发展

在Beyond组成首十年发表之作品中,大部分均为黄家驹作曲及演唱,除了经乐队发表作品,黄家驹偶然也为其他歌手作曲,曾经合作歌手包括许冠杰、谭咏麟、麦洁文、王靖雯(王菲)等。遗憾的是,由于Beyond四人时代后期所属唱片公司(华纳)的高层抱着“好作品应留给自己,乐迷要听Beyond,就应买Beyond的唱片”的狭隘思想,反对Beyond成员把自己作品交给别人演唱[2],故有机会与黄家驹合作的歌手不多。


黄家驹是乐队中灵魂人物,不时包辨乐队歌曲的作曲及填词。他的性格敢言,不时发表大胆的言论,因此有时令娱乐圈中人不满。然而其果断、健谈的个性,也令他成为乐队的发言人及领导人物,带领Beyond事业闯进多个高峰。经过多年努力,Beyond成为香港最举足轻重乐队,1989年,由黄家驹作曲,以歌颂母亲为题的作品《真的爱你》大热,成为家传户晓的颂母歌曲。不过,由于对香港乐坛失望,加上希望乐队能冲出香港,故九十年代初期,Beyond决定发展东南亚、台湾、大陆、日本等市场。


[编辑] 日本时期

1990年起,Beyond开始于台湾及中国大陆等地发展,知名度渐渐提高。1991年,Beyond于香港体育馆举办五场《生命接触演唱会》。此时日本经理人公司对Beyond感到兴趣,与他们签约,带Beyond往日本及其他亚洲地区发展。同年年尾,Beyond转投华纳唱片,开始Beyond的华纳时代。黄家驹表示这是他们希望有更大自由度去玩音乐。 1992年,Beyond开始长居日本,接下大大小小的工作,其中包括黄家驹最不愿意的游戏节目,Beyond起初以为日本比香港有更大自由度去玩音乐,谁知却依然要装“邻家的小男孩”去得到日本乐迷认同。虽然他们在日本的生活孤独,但在那里能学习得到跟香港不一样的音乐成为了Beyond在日本玩音乐最大的推动力。此时的Beyond,在日本的知名度已慢慢上升,同时亦吸纳到一班日本的乐迷。


[编辑] 逝世

1993年6月24日凌晨,乐队于日本富士电视台录影游戏节目《想做什么 就做什么》(日语:ウッチャンナンチャンのやるならやらねば!)时发生意外,黄家驹不慎由2.7米高台跌下[3],头部着地重伤昏迷,留医六天后于日本时间下午4时15分逝世,得年31岁。丧礼于鲗鱼涌香港殡仪馆举行,遗体下葬于将军澳华人永远坟场;另外九龙塘省善真堂亦安放了其灵位。他的遗作包括有《情人》、《为了你,为了我》、《早班火车》和《海阔天空》等。


[编辑] 逝世以后

黄家驹去世后,对香港台湾以至中国内地等华人地区一代又一代年青乐迷仍然有着深远的影响。而Beyond其他成员也继承其遗志,以乐队名义推出多张专辑,直至2005年才正式宣布解散。


黄家驹对香港乐坛之贡献已获大众认同,香港邮政于2005年11月8日推出《香港流行歌星》邮品系列中,黄家驹成为其中一名获致敬推出邮票的歌手(面额为HK$1.40)[4]。香港电台于2007年也为其拍摄了纪念特辑《不死传奇:黄家驹》,并于2008年1月26日在无线电视翡翠台播放[5]。其后,香港电台及香港商业电台亦先后播出黄家驹的纪念节目。


纵使黄家驹已逝世多年,但未被大众遗忘,直至现在(特别是每年六月)仍然有大批来自世界各地的乐迷前往拜祭。2009年9月25日,四川电视台综合节目《天下笑友会》之主持及嘉宾以开玩笑性质发表侮辱黄家驹之言论[6],引起中港台三地Beyond歌迷强烈抗议[7],最终令嘉宾公开道歉,可见黄家驹至今仍然广受乐迷爱戴。


[编辑] 专辑

主唱作品以Beyond名义推出。最后参与创作之作品,收录于粤语专辑《乐与怒》及国语专辑《海阔天空》。


黄家驹去世后,Beyond所属的唱片公司华纳唱片及滚石唱片先后推出致敬专辑,包括:


《遥望黄家驹不死音乐精神特别纪念集92-93》(华纳唱片,1993年)- 收录了写予蔡兴麟的歌曲《为了你,为了我》黄家驹演唱版本。 

《祝您愉快 - 致家驹》(滚石唱片,1994年)- 由滚石唱片旗下歌手重唱黄家驹作品之纪念专辑。

[编辑] 黄家驹语录

我哋系Beyond乐队,我系黄家驹。 

香港只有娱乐圈,没有乐坛! 

音乐应该有好多种类,有好多性格,有好多色彩,有好多唔同感情,唔同文化喺里面,音乐系艺术。 

音乐唔系娱乐咁简单,系生命里面一个节奏,无论你系个点繁忙嘅人,点顾住揾钱嘅人,都唔可以冇音乐。 

大部份我哋嘅歌,唔系用嚟娱乐多,系欣赏多。 

呢样系我哋心声,我而家对呢样嘢有感觉,我大声啲唱俾大家听。 

我觉得每一样嘢都系发自内心,要感动人一定要感动到自己先。 

我系音乐人,我系音乐人,我会尊重音乐。 

如果冇音乐,我会死,我会死真系,唔可能冇。 

我成日觉得自己背住支吉他就好似背住把宝剑。 

你向𠮶社会需要一啲嘢时候,第一个步骤你问你自己俾咗啲乜嘢个社会先,我俾咗音乐。 

我抱怨紧一样我唔满意嘅嘢,我尽量去改变佢,但我不断咁抱怨但我又唔改变,咁就只系抱怨。 

我哋唔介意人点睇我哋自己,我就唔觉得我自己反叛,我就觉得自己好正常。 

好辛苦如果太刻意去做一样嘢出嚟,你会吃力不讨好。 

我绝对唔希望我地中国人永远停留响怀缅过去一啲辉煌史里面,呢啲辉煌史已经过去,我地要建立明日辉煌史,我哋要为将来做得更好。 

我谂最大理想我谂都系Beyond可以世界巡回表演,可以带俾外面嘅朋友睇我地香港都有自己音乐,话俾人听我哋香港乐队都有番咁上下份量。

我哋可以咁大胆去到咁远,完全因为有一班好似你哋咁好嘅歌迷。 

喺我哋未来日子里面我哋面对好多大时代变迁,我哋会好积极咁面对我地将来变化。 

我相信今晚一定有啲由1983年支持到我今日嘅朋友喺度,唔系好多,但都应该有啩,再次多谢你嘅。 

无论去到几远几远,最后我哋都喺返番呢度。

Beyond Music 

流行音乐的清泉-黄家驹 


Wong Ka-Kui (June 10, 1962 - June 30, 1993) was a Hong Kong composer, songwriter, musician and singer. He was the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and the founder of the Hong Kong rock band Beyond.


He composed more than 90 percent of the songs for Beyond and wrote a few award-winning lyrics. Ka-Kui is remembered for his musical talents as well as his unique and powerful voice that is able to convey a number of emotions. His songs are often addressing humanity and social issues such as injustice, war and peace, racism, poverty, family and pursuit of dream.


Wong Ka-Kui had a great influence on at least a generation of Chinese because of his outlook on life and the spirit of never giving up. He devoted his entire life to achieve change in the Hong Kong music industry and also tried to make a difference in the world.


While filming a gameshow for Fuji Television in Japan on June 24, 1993, Wong Ka-Kui fell off a 3 meter platform head first, and was hospitalized immediately. He died after spending several days in coma due to internal bleeding from head injuries.

Biography

[edit] Early life

While a teenager, Wong Ka-Kui was greatly interested in European and American music. At age 15, Wong Ka-Kui and his brother, Wong Ka Keung found a broken acoustic guitar. They decided to give it to their neighbor, who knows how to play the guitar. Their neighbor said that it's a bad guitar and rejects the gift. Wong Ka-Kui fixes it and begins to play the guitar himself. From that moment on, he spent most of the time learning music on his own while still working in other jobs[1]. His friends described Ka-Kui as a music maniac because he would never feel tired of playing music. In an interview, Ka-Kui recalled those earlier days as tough and harsh to him. Because rock music has minimal prominence in Hong Kong, hardly anyone understood Ka-Kui's love for Rock N'Roll. His parents said he was useless, and most people thought he was crazy because whenever they saw him, he was doing nothing except playing guitar.


[edit] The formation of Beyond

In 1983, Wong Ka-Kui met Yip Sai Wing, and formed a rock band called Beyond. Yip Sai Wing was the drummer of the band and Wong Ka-Kui was the leading vocalist and guitarist. In the same year they won an award for “Best Band” in a competition sponsored by Guitar Magazine. Paul Wong, initially designed posters and record covers for Beyond, joined the band later on as a guitarist. In 1984, Wong Ka-Kui's younger brother, Wong Ka Keung joined the band as a bassist. Since then Beyond remained an independent band, playing music at nightclubs and schools. In 1986, Beyond self-published "Goodbye Ideals" on cassette tape. Their early styles were mostly hard rock, new wave, post-punk, experimental and avant-garde[2]. Their later manager, Leslie Chan, attended one of their live performances and was impressed by their unique style. As a result, Chan invited Beyond to sign with Kinn's music. However, their hard rock style was not widely accepted by listeners in Hong Kong. Disappointing album sales presented Beyond with a dilemma [1]. In 1987, Beyond released their first album Arabian Dancing Girl. Their music began softened with keyboard, but their album sale still couldn’t meet the expectations. At the same time, they were constantly criticized by other rock bands about commercializing their original hard rock music. In 1988, Beyond released album Modern Stage with some pop songs. For the first time, they included some slow-paced, love theme songs as well as songs with satirical lyrics about their Society. Again, their album sale was not successful, and their management company threatened that no more opportunities would be provided to them if they fail again.


[edit] First Success

Realizing the situation they were in, Beyond released their next album Secret Police with songs that were more in the popular genre. Songs such as 大地(The Land) and 喜歡你(Loving You) from the recording 秘密警察(Secret Police) gained tremendous popularity, followed by Beyond's increased recognition and public appearances. Several songs they composed later proved incredible success as well. They received awards for 真的愛你(Truly Love You) and 俾面派對(Social Party). Truly Love You is a tribute song to mothers, which is one of the best-known songs from Beyond. Social Party is a satire song about the Hong Kong entertainment industry, in which musicians are often asked to appear in unrelated TV game shows.


[edit] Social Concerns

Gradually Beyond became the most popular band in Hong Kong. At the same time marked the turning point of their music career. They paid more attention to the social issues and the ongoing events around the world. Wong Ka-Kui won the Best Lyric award for his touching, epic-like lyric for 光輝歲月(The Glorious Days), which is a tribute to Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, former president of South Africa. In 1991, Beyond visited Kenya and witnessed the poverty and misery there. When they came back to Hong Kong, Ka-Kui wrote a number of songs addressing the serious problems he saw in the trip. The most famous is Amani, which urges to stop wars and demand peace. The Beyond Third World Foundation was created in the same year with profits from the redistribution of an early album.


[edit] Career in Japan

Realizing the restriction on original music in Hong Kong, Beyond decided to redirect their career to Japan. In January 1992, Beyond signed a worldwide management contract with Japanese record label Amuse. His stage name was "Koma"; many fans still blaming this "cursed" name. During the year, they released an album called The Revolution Continues. In May 1993, Beyond returned to Hong Kong with a new album Rock and Roll. Wong Ka-Kui's signature work 海闊天空(Under a Vast Sky, sometimes translated as “Vast Sky and Boundless Sea”) won the Best Original Song award in Hong Kong. Before they went back to Japan, Beyond held an unplugged concert in Hong Kong and Malaysia, which was Beyond’s last concert with Wong Ka-Kui.


[edit] Death

"For us and for Hong Kong, the incident was not merely about the loss of an artist. It was about losing a revolutionary of music." - Paul Wong on the death of Ka Kui.


In order to promote their new record, Beyond participated in the filming of a very popular Japanese game show "Ucchan-nanchan no yarunara yaraneba" in Fuji Television studio on June 24, 1993. The stage floor was wet and slippery. While playing a game, Wong Ka Kui fell off the platform with one of the hosts Uchimura. Ka Kui hit the ground head first and fell into coma immediately. News about this accident was scarcely covered in the Japanese press. However, people in Hong Kong were shocked as soon as they learned about this accident. Realizing the tremendous popularity Wong Ka-Kui had in Hong Kong, people in Japan paid more attention to him, inviting plenty of medical experts to help. At the same time, Beyond's fans in both Hong Kong and Japan kept praying for Ka-Kui. On June 30, 1993, the Japanese representative announced Wong Ka-Kui's death in a press conference. Ka-Kui's funeral procession caused traffic in various major streets in Hong Kong to grind to a standstill, and almost every famous Hong Kong Cantopop singer was in attendance to pay their respects. He was buried in Tseung Kwan O Cemetery.


[edit] Influences on Hong Kong's music

Another dream of Ka-Kui was to help local musicians. Along with the other members of Beyond, they established a foundation offering assistance to aspiring artists in creating and publishing their works. As the leader of Hong Kong's only band to have transitioned from the underground scene to the mainstream, Ka-Kui has been cited as influential and inspiring by many of today's crop of musicians and bands. In addition, Ka-Kui has often been credited as a positive force in Hong Kong's music industry along with the Godfather of Cantopop, Sam Hui - both noted for creating and setting standards.


[edit] Trivia

 Lists of miscellaneous information should be avoided. Please relocate any relevant information into appropriate sections or articles. (September 2008)


Beginning in December, 2007, Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) released a documentary series called 不死傳奇 (A Legend Never Dies), featuring Roman Tam, Anita Mui, Leslie Cheung, Teresa Teng, Wong Ka Kui and Danny Chan. The episode of Ka Kui was aired on TVB on January 26th, 2008. The episode labeled Wong Ka Kui "The Spring Water of Hong Kong Music Industry." 

On November 8, 2005, Hong Kong post office released a stamp collection called "Hong Kong Pop Singers". Wong Ka-Kui was one of the five singers who had their images printed on stamps. 

In a vote conducted by Sina China in 2007, Wong Ka-Kui was one of the Most Missed Celebrity along with Leslie Cheung and Anita Mui. 

Wong Ka-Kui's favorite singer was David Bowie. He admitted that Bowie had a great influence on him. 

There are many tribute songs dedicated to Wong Ka-Kui, including "The Champion of Love" by Japanese rock group Bakufu-Slump, 佢 ("He") by Soler, 祝你愉快 (Wish You Well) by his brother Wong Ka Keung, "Paradise" by Beyond, 抗戰二十年 (Combat for 20 years) by Beyond and 故事 (The Story) by Paul Wong. 

In the last concert of Beyond in 2003, Wong Ka-Kui has been resurrected in the form of a life-size video projection, alongside his former band mates while they sang the song 抗戰二十年 (Combat for 20 years) in memory of him[3]. 

For the Sichuan earthquake appeal, 海闊天空 (Under a Vast Sky) was used as the music for the theme song with the lyrics re-written by Andy Lau.
