He played guitar, keyboards and bass guitar. He rarely sang, though his voice was occasionally heard as a background singer. Casale was trained as a medical radiation technologist, but left the job to join Devo. He was married at 19, but divorced soon after Devo made it big. He was a part of Mutato Muzika and an audio engineer, mixer, producer, and composer. In live shows, Bob 2 played both rhythm/lead guitar and keyboards. Bob 2 was credited as "Bob2" on most Devo albums. For his work outside of Devo he is most often credited as "Robert Casale".

He died at the age of 61 of heart failure. a b c In a statement, Gerald Casale says that "He was excited about the possibility of Mark Mothersbaugh allowing Devo to play shows again. His sudden death from conditions that lead to heart failure came as a total shock to us all".
