Devo guitarist Bob Casale dies aged 61

Bob CasaleDevo Guitarist Bob Casale has died. He was 61 years old.

Gerald Casale broke the news via the band’s Facebook page.

“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.”

RIP Bob.
