Bob Casale of Devo

Since 1978, Casale has been a part of every Devo record released, including their most recent Something for Everybody in 2010. His sudden death came from conditions that led to heart failure.

Bandmate and brother Gerald Casale posted on Facebook today in regards to the death.

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.
