It's been a while since we had a "Devo is awesome" thread. From Neil's book, "Waging Heavy Peace": "Devo's influence and where they came from is something I've never seen adequately described. They are true originals." The book is a little ambiguous, but he suggests that Devo contributed "It's better to burn out, because rust never sleeps," drawing on a sign the Devo guys had seen in Akron growing up. As another aside, Jerry Casale has started producing wine. I bought some of his first bottling, and it was darned good. Thumbs way up.
