"Bob Casale of Devo. Born: July 14th, 1952 . Deceased: February 17th, 2014
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.
"Casale was originally trained as a medical radiation technologist. In Devo concerts, Bob played lead/rhythm guitar and keyboards while working with MIDI sampling. He also sang backup vocals both on album and at live shows.
Starting in 1984, Bob was the sound engineer for all of Devo's albums, including Shout, Total Devo, Smooth Noodle Maps and Something for Everybody." [via]
