Background Information

The Call were a band formed in Santa Cruz in 1980. Their seventh album was released in 1990, and was titled “Red Moon”. The album contained the song “What’s Happened to You” which features Bono providing backing vocals on the track. That song was also released on the 1997 compilation “The Best of the Call”. The Call had stopped recording together after the 1990 album, and had taken a long break from releasing material. In 1997 they were offered the opportunity to put together a best of compilation, and include some previously unheard material.

In 2000 another compilation was released entitled “The Best of the Call – The Millenium Edition”. This compilation would also include the song “What’s Happened to You”.

The Call have since disbanded, and the lead singer, Michael Been passed away on August 19, 2010, while working as a sound engineer for his son’s band “Black Rebel Motorcycle Club”. The only song The Call recorded with Bono was “What’s Happened to You”.
