Alan Myers, Devo Drummer, Dies Of Cancer

Alan Myers, who joined the new wave rock act Devo as the band’s third drummer, has died of cancer at the age of 58. Myers joined the band during their greatest period of success with the single “Whip It”.  Sometimes referred to as “the human metronome”, Myers had an unconscious energy that characterized his drumming style, making him the best drummer in the history of the act. Myers fit in well with the group as well, and was game for whatever the band tried to do including gimmicks involving plastic hair, etc.
