The band Tai Chi's keyboardist Gary Tong Yik Chung earlier passed away possibly from heart disease. TVB two nights ago aired JADE SOLID GOLD REMEMBERS GARY TONG, and invited Tai Chi members and his cousin Jones Lee Chung Hei to share their experience with them. Everyone often got teary eyed while talking about him.
Joey Tang Kin Ming revealed that back then he played poorly. Gary sacrificed his play time to train him; Patrick Lui Yau fai would shared with Gary his heartbreaks and treated him like a hugging pillow. They also said that Gary aside from music was also great at eating. "On tour when we called room service, he would open the menu and order one of everything on the entire page. The entire table was full!" They also sang NEVER SAY FAREWELL AGAIN IN LIFE sorrowfully. Lui Yau Fai even broke down in tears. In Canada, Tai Chi member Albert Lui Yau Jiu revealed over the phone, "The first day I met him was when he was working at a piano shop. Every time I visited him he was playing the piano. He was the soul of the band." George Lam Chi Cheung, Alan Tam Wing Lun and Donny Summer (Ha Siu Sing) also sent videos in remembrance.
