DEVO Bassist Remembers Doing Drugs with Sarah Jessica Parker

April 14, 2009

When DEVO bassist/synthesizer player Gerald V. Casale appeared on the ’80s sitcom Square Pegs (which starred Sarah Jessica Parker and Jami Gertz), he did a little bit more than play a new wave Bat Mitzvah with the rest of his Ohio crew.

Casale recently told Heeb magazine that “the girls were out of control” and that “they were doing drugs" and “were making out and they were coming on to” the band “in a big way,” He also said that he also hazily recalled doing coke with Jami Gertz and SJP in the talent trailers:

They might have been 15 or 16, but in their heads they were already 40. I don’t think there was a virgin on the set, except maybe a couple of the guys.

The ‘80s must have rocked.
