The unfortunate passing of Devo guitarist, Bob Casale, was announced today.  The original member of Devo, more commonly known as “Bob 2,” died from heart failure on Monday, February 18th.  As a tribute to his legacy, we commemorate Devo with a cover of their 1980 single, “Girl U Want,” by Freelance Whales.  Freelance Whales released their version of “Girl U Want” back in 2011, and by putting their own creative spin on the song, they produced a slower-paced, banjo picking, ballad.  Listen to both songs below.
