Alan Myers, the former drummer of Devo, has sadly passed away following a long fought battle with cancer.

Despite leaving Devo in the late 70s due to "a lack of creative fulfillment" - Myers is still considered the most popular drummer among Devo-heads. This is laregley due to the fact that he drummed on 'Whip It', along with the likes of Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and Freedom of Choice.

The news broke yesterday via Ralph Carney's Facebook page: "I just got some bad news. Alan Myers passed yesterday from cancer. He was Devo's best drummer and one of the first people to teach me about jazz. I cry………."
