R.I.P. BOB CASALE, aka 'BOB 2" OF DEVO

Bob Casale, aka "Bob 2" of Devo — so dubbed to distinguish him from Bob Mothersbaugh, aka "Bob 1" — has passed on due to heart issues at the far-too-young age of 61. Anyone who knows me outside of the internet or who reads this blog regularly knows the high regard I have for Devo, so this comes as quite a blow.

Thank you, Bob, for all the great music you contributed to and for all the enjoyment and mental stimulation you helped bring to me during the many times I've needed it since first encountering Devo on that fateful SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE broadcast when I was just thirteen years of age. Rest well, spudboy.
