He then moved on to play for The Adolescents off and on from[2] 1980–87. After The Adolescents' first breakup in 1981, Casey went on to form his own band D.I., performing as a frontman for the first time.

He rejoined them again in 2001-2002 for their 20th Anniversary Tour. Casey also joined former Adolescents bandmates in ADZ from 1989–93, after which he again made D.I. his primary focus.
