After graduation, he began to learn guitar and then changed to bass. Before joining the Tang Dynasty Band, Zhang Ju had participated in three bands.
In 1988, he and Ding Wu jointly formed the "Tang Dynasty". Although young, he has participated in the formation of three bands, and is one of the most popular young generation of rock musicians.
Chinese rock power
Singing: Dou Wei, Zhang Chu, He Yong, Tang Dynasty band accompaniment: Liu Xiaosong, Zhang Ju
At 8:00 p.m. on December 17, 1994, Dou Wei, Zhang Chu, He Yong and the Tang Dynasty Band, who performed as guests, officially performed the "rock and roll Chinese music power" concert in Hong Kong's honghom stadium, which was filled with media from all over the world and nearly 10000 audiences. In the situation that no one can expect, the three and a half hour concert almost fell into an incredible state. The strict regulations of honghom stadium can't stop tens of thousands of people who are determined to stand up. They dance and roar with their hands and throats. They pause and jump with their feet. Even the media and security personnel who are used to performance scenes are in a state of excitement. In Hong Kong, almost no concert is so crazy.
The next day, most of the newspapers of RTHK reported the grand occasion of the performance with an unprecedented prominent page, "rock soul, exploding Xiangjiang", "Chinese rock, attacking Hong Kong", "honghom, very China". Many articles commented on the performance one after another, and more cultural and musical people expressed many opinions. Everyone spoke highly of the warm response on the day of the performance, and they also expressed their opinions At the same time, it raises a question: "what happened?"
The impact of Beijing's new musicians on Hong Kong and Taiwan formally comes from this. For the first time, they have proved that idols are not unchangeable myths. In Hong Kong, the center of the Chinese entertainment industry, tens of thousands of people are crazy about the power of "reality" at the same time. They have proved for the first time that the cultural nutrients from the rich mother earth can make people have a new vision and imagination. They have seen the essence of music that has not been seen for a long time, and found that it is the line connecting with the soul. Therefore, they have put aside their usual reserve and called for madness. The impact brought to the record industry and media of Hong Kong and Taiwan also came from this. They began to believe that commerce should be just a process and a system, and commerce is not a form of music. For the first time, this performance combines the staff from all sides of China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. They all have a strong mission and imagination to the Chinese culture. Most of them believe that the Chinese people will have a more prosperous cultural landscape, which is not from the fictional entertainment fantasy, but from the more real and broad creative power. In this performance, they all see such hope.
For the staff who have been working with new musicians in Beijing for a long time, such as me, I can't maintain the excitement for a long time, at least the excitement is not enough. We can see how they have invested all their lives in music in the past ten years. I can see that every note of their music is an extension of their life. I can see their deep feelings for music. The impact and upsurge brought to people in Hong Kong is not the purpose of their creation. In Hong Kong, they openly told the media that Beijing is the source of their life and China is the root of their creation However, we feel that this is the essence of China's new music. On this basis, we have more future to face and more distant tasks to wait for. The success of Hong Kong's performance is just the beginning.
In this concert, the new music from Beijing officially unveils its mysterious veil, directly shows its creative power, and points out a clear direction for the future of China's new music. At the same time, thanks to the first musicians who participated in this concert, because of their strong performance, this concert album has become a historical record. Finally, I would like to use this album to commemorate Zhang Ju, his last performance, and his most brilliant impression of Chinese new music in his short life. ...
In 1995, Zhang Ju participated in the creation of face band's first album fire instinct, in which a lot of bass performances were played by Zhang Ju.
On May 11, 1995, the day that no one would like to recall, he left us forever and left the rock business he loved forever.
Goodbye to Zhang Ju, November 1997
This may be the most important publication of mainland rock music in 1997, because it is a party with a huge lineup.

Tang Dynasty Band and friends
October 26, 1995
In Jiang Xin's memoirs
At that time, Guo Dawei and I (the manager of the Tang Dynasty) had just moved to a new home. One of the biggest advantages of the new home was that it was close to Ju Ju's home. We took a taxi and arrived before the starting price.
At that time, Ju Ju was experiencing emotional crisis, especially the need to mix with people, so everyone would soak together all day. Sometimes Guo Dawei and I go to their house, sometimes Ju Ju rides his "the coolest motorcycle in Beijing" to come here, and catch up with the rehearsal day, because the two famous restaurants in Zhenwu temple are delicious and cheap, and all the dinner after that will arrive. Zhao Nian, the drummer of the Tang Dynasty Band, also rides a motorcycle and lives nearby. He and the Tang Dynasty Band, who belong to the same contract company, are always "roaring" when they catch up with each other. As a result, the scene of those dinners turns into an exhibition about long hair and motorcycles on that street, saying that "200% rate of return" simply belongs to Bao
