oh, i loved the call! i never saw them as a U2 ripoff. (half the bands i hear now sound like nirvana.) michael been has a much better voice than bono.

oh dear. i bet you remove me from your f-list now! sorry. :)

he was in The Last Temptation, you know? he was a disciple. he looked great in the part.

I'll let that infraction slide once.

Heck bona thinks Michael Stipe has a better voice than Bono does.

ha! thanks. :D

i like michael stipe. what bono has, rather than the gift of a beautiful voice (no matter that the edge named him Bono Vox, meaning good voice, if i have the story right), is passion. he wobbles when he sings, but he sings with total conviction.

joseph arthur doesn't have a great voice, either. it's all in his intelligence and his nutty creativity. a beautiful voice isn't necessarily one i can love. y'know?

The Call was more than a rip off band! Michael Been was the real thing.

How can "The Walls Came Down" sound like U2? And Garth Hudson was in the video!

hmph!

U2 RIPOFF BAND?!?!? Them's fighting words...

They were much more of a "Band" ripoff, if you ask Been (and I have).

The Call was my gateway to VOL as well...went to see The Call, and Bill and the boys were opening (Struggleville tour).

Great band. Michael's solo album, "On the Verge on a Nervous Breakthrough" is worth having as well...

Good thing I didn't include "The Alarm" in my list of "U2 Ripoff Bands", a term I use with affection ;)

I love The Alarm, but they fit much more comfortably into your description than the Call does...
