DEVO - Original Member Bob Casale Passes Away At The Age Of 61

Bob "Bob2" Casale, an original member of legendary American new wave/post-punk/synthpop band Devo died at the age of 61. Bob was born on 14th July 1952 and died on 17th February 2014. Devo were formed in 1972 and their classic line up included two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs (Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single "Whip It", and has maintained a cult following throughout its existence. Their most recent album was Something For Everybody, released in 2010.
Devo founder and Bob's brother stated: "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."
Words from Bob "Bob1" Mothersbaugh, Devo guitarist: "I'm heartbroken about Bob's sudden passing. I will always miss him."
And Mark Mothersbaugh, Devo founder said: "We are shocked and saddened by Bob Casale's passing. He not only was integral in Devo's sound, he worked over twenty years at Mutato, collaborating with me on sixty or seventy films and television shows, not to mention countless commercials and many video games. Bob was instrumental in creating the sound of projects as varied as Rugrats and Wes Anderson's films. He was a great friend. I will miss him greatly." Link
