This makes me sad. Devo were way ahead of their time.
NEW YORK — Devo guitarist Bob Casale died Monday, his brother and band mate announced Tuesday. Casale was 61.
He was known by fans as “Bob 2″ since he played alongside guitarist Bob Mothersbaugh, the brother of Devo co-founder Mark Mothersbaugh.
“As an original member of Devo, Bob Casale was there in the trenches with me from the beginning,” his brother and band mate Gerald Casale said in a Facehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRrISZAF7lobook posting. “He was my level-headed brother, a solid performer and talented audio engineer, always giving more than he got.”
