Devo Drummer Dead

It was the machines what kilt him (Or brain cancer.):
And Gerald Casale, Devo co-founder, also remarked on Myers' passing (and couldn't help implying that others in Devo were responsible for his departure): "RE: Alan Myers. I begged him not to quit Devo. He could not tolerate being replaced by the Fairlight and autocratic machine music. I agreed."
From the L.A. Times, which offers a couple of vids we will assume to be good demonstrations of his stickwork. Check the comments too.

Our fave number:Another born after we were yet dead before we are. I.e., gone too soon. (Assuming we aren't a corpse right now. Sometimes we can barely tell. Hold that mirror under our nose, wouldja?)
