Devo Guitarist Bob Casale Dies at 61

Posted by Emily Nokes on Tue, Feb 18, 2014 at 1:29 PM

Sad, sad news: Bob Casale (or "Bob 2") of Devo has passed away today from heart failure. Bob's brother Gerald Casale, also a founding memeber of Devo, wrote on the band's Facebook earlier today:

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.
