Beck

  • Beck Hansen (born Bek David Campbell, July 8, 1970) is an American musician, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist known by the stage name Beck.
  • Beck is the son of '60s underground film actress Bibbe Hansen, who worked with Andy Warhol on a number of projects including his film Prison. Beck's grandfather Al Hansen was a member of the Fluxus art movement, which also included Yoko Ono.
  • Born in Los Angeles, Beck moved to New York when he was 17 and joined the Folk scene. He returned to Los Angeles when he ran out of money and began playing area coffeehouses, which is where he made a name for himself.
  • He is a regular musical guest on Saturday Night Live. By 2007, he had been on 6 times.
  • During 1998, Beck's art collaborations with his grandfather Al Hansen were featured in an exhibition entitled "Beck & Al Hansen: Playing With Matches", which showcased solo and collaborative collage, assemblage, drawing and poetry works.
  • From 1991 to 2000, Beck was in a relationship with designer Leigh Limon. Their breakup is said to have inspired his 2002 album, Sea Change. He wrote most of the songs for the album in one week after the breakup.
  • Beck has been involved in Scientology for most of his life; his wife is also a second-generation Scientologist. Marissa and her twin brother, Giovanni, were delivered by Beck's mother, Bibbe. Beck publicly acknowledged his affiliation with the controversial Church of Scientology for the first time in an interview published in the New York Times Magazine on March 6, 2005.
