Bob Casale dies from heart failure at 61
Devo guitarist Bob Casale died from health complications which led to heart failure, according to his brother Gerald.
Bob Casale passed away on Monday at the age of 61.
A post on Devo’s Facebook page from Gerald Casale reads: “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.”
Bob and Gerald Casale formed Devo in the early 1970s with brothers Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh and Alan Myers.
