The Call's Michael Been Dies Backstage At Pukkelpop


HASSELT, Belgium (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Michael Been of the oft-overlooked alt-rock band The Call died on Thursday while backstage at the the Pukkelpop Music Festival after suffering from a heart attack. He was 60.

Been was on tour with his son Robert's band, Black Rebel Motorcycle club as their sound engineer.

The Call saw their greatest successes in the 1980s, with hits such as "The Walls Came Down" and "Let the Day Begin." The band however, dissolved in 2000 and since then, the elder been had been an active force with his son's band.

"Often referenced as their fourth member, Been spent countless hours in the studio acting in many roles from mentor and guide," the band's Juliana Plotkin told CNN. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
