Due to heart failure...
TMZ reports that Devo guitarist Bob Casale has passed away at the age of 61. Devo is of course known for the 1980 song "Whip It". He died yesterday from health complications that led to heart failure. His brother Gerald, also a founding member of the band, confirmed the news.
He said: "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."
The band was formed in 1972 and had success with "Whip It", which was one of the first music videos to make an impact on MTV.
