Fantastic drummer. Josh Freese has done an incredible job filling his shoes for the last 17 years. I play in a DEVO tribute band, and all the guys are bummed. RIP.

I played in a DEVO tribute band for a Lansing, MI based tribute comp, and, like, somehow this hits me a little closer to home. RIP, Human Metronome.

Strange that it says "best know for Whip It" in this news post. This band is legendary.

The average person doesn't know any Devo songs beyond "Whip It", so the post is accurate.

I just mean that when they post about Yellowcard it doesn't day "best know for Ocean Avenue".... Yet I would say that more people are fans of Devo than Yellowcard (just using them as an example)
