Michael Been RIP

Michael Been, lead singer of The Call, died Thursday in Belgium. He was sixty years old. At the time of his death, Been was working as sound engineer for Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, a band fronted by his son Robert Levon Been.

On a personal note, The Call were one of the best bands I've ever seen live. I caught them a couple times in the late Eighties, at the Roxy and the Palace. The entire band were very kind when asked for autographs, seemingly humbled by people gushing over them.

RIP, Michael.

From 1983, "The Walls Came Down," from Modern Romans:
