Rock 'n' roll rebels don't always have to rage against their parents. Sometimes they can embrace them. Take the story of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club singer/bassist Robert Levon Been for example.
On Thursday at Slim's in San Francisco and Friday at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, Been will stand in for his late father, Michael Been, fronting The Call, the Santa Cruz, Calif. band known for the '80s hits "The Walls Came Down" and "Let the Day Begin."
On August 19, 2010, the elder Been died tragically of a heart attack at the age of 60 at the Pukkelpop festival in Hasselt, Belgium, while working as a soundman for BRMC.
