Farewell to Devo's "Human Metronome"

Alan Myers, the iconic former drummer for Devo, has passed away. The musician finally succumbed to his battle with cancer and many fans and friends have paid tribute to him through social media since the announcement of his passing. Perhaps Alan’s most well-known drumming can be heard on Devo’s “Whip It”.
