In this week's issue, writer Dave Good previewed the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's show at the Glass House in Pomona. It's going to be a memorable show–and not for the usual reasons BRMC shows are memorable. As Good said in his story:
It will be without the person they often referred to as their fourth member. Michael Been, father of bassist Robert Been, died of a heart attack backstage at Pukkelpop festival in Belgium on Aug. 19. On tour with the band at the time, he'd worked as BRMC's live sound mixer for years. He mixed and mentored in the studio as well. Michael Been shares production credits for BRMC's sixth studio album, Beat the Devil's Tattoo, part of a legacy that includes his own brush with fame as singer/guitarist in the '80s band the Call.
