Bob Casale of Devo’s original line up, passed away on Monday 17th February at age 61. As an original member of the band, Casale served as guitarist, keyboardist and backing vocalist for the majority of the bands career.
His brother and co-founder of Devo, Gerald Casale wrote on facebook; “As an original member of Devo, Bob Casale was there in the trenches with me from the beginning. He was my level-headed brother, a solid performer and talented audio engineer, always giving more than he got. He was excited about the possibility of Mark Mothersbaugh allowing Devo to play shows again. His sudden death from conditions that lead to heart failure came as a total shock to us all. “
