It is with a heavy heart that we report that Devo founding member Bob Casale passed away on Monday, February 17. He was just 61 at the time of his death.
He died due to heart failure and it appears to have been sudden.
His brother and fellow Devo member Gerald Casale posted a note on Facebook. It read as follows:
"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."
