Who knew that Falls resident Mark Allen Mothersbaugh would become an American singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, author and visual artist. Mark grew up in the Falls, went to Bolich Jr High, then went to high school at Woodridge, graduating in 1968. Mark, his brother Bob, and their father came to prominence in the late 1970s as co-founders, singers, and musicians of the new wave band Devo, who’s "Whip It" was a Top 20 single in the US, and is still popular today.
