DeVito took on production duties for Bob Dylan's classic albums Blood on the Tracks, and Desire, and also worked with Billy Joel, Aerosmith, and Bruce Springsteen.
In 1989 he won a Grammy Award for the covers album Folkways - A Vision Shared: A Tribute to Woody Guthrie And Leadbelly, which featured performances from Brian Wilson, Willie Nelson, and U2.
DeVito, who retired from the music industry in 2007, had been suffering from prostate cancer for 16 years, according to his former bosses at Columbia Records.
Corgan took to Instagram to confirm rumours of new Pumpkins material, saying the first songs could arrive as early as May.
