Devo guitarist and keyboard player Bob Casale has died.

We have just learnt via competitive eater 'Tiny' Tim Rauscheder that Bob Casale, guitarist and keyboard player with the band Devo, died yesterday (17/2/14) aged 61.

Gerald Casale, founder member, bass player and Bob's brother, broke the news with the following statement:

"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."

RIP Bob Casale, 14/7/52 to 17/2/14.
