RIP Alan Myers

Just got word that Devo's original drummer, Alan Myers, passed away due to cancer. Myers was an important early influence on me and many drummers of my generation. He was one of the first live drummers to play like a drum machine and put it in an American popular music context. Players as diverse as Questlove and Jojo Mayer owe him a debt.
