More info on the Chinese band Beyond from Wikipedia:

Beyond was a rock band formed in Hong Kong in 1983. The band became prominent in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia. They were also very popular in mainland China. The band was, and still is, widely considered as the most successful and influential Cantonese band from Hong Kong.

In 1993, the group’s founder and key vocalist Wong Ka-kui died due to an accident while filming a show in Japan. Beyond continued to perform and record after Wong Ka-kui’s death. In 2005, the remaining members Paul Wong, Wong Ka-keung, and Yip Sai-wing decided to pursue their own solo careers, and Beyond officially disbanded.

Beyond was the first Chinese rock band to have an international fan base in Asia among Chinese and non-Chinese.
