  1. He was one of the good ones! If it hadn’t been for Moog, we may not have fully witnessed the electronic sounds that so many musicians have used for the last 40 years. R.I.P. again.

  2. The synth picture above was like the third or fourth generation units. Earlier versions had an upright back that had cables and holes much like the old telephone operators had with their manual connections made.

  3. I see stories about Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman… can you imagine either of them having careers without Moog’s invention?
