Robert Moog

Robert Moog, 1931-2005.

Those were the Sixties baby! Check out the tie!

How timely that, just last night on WTUL's 20th Century Classics, Isao Tomita's Moog music was played.

Profiles are available in the New York Times obituary, Wikipedia, and the Electronic Music Foundation.

One of the earliest recordings using the Moog synthesizer was The Beatles Abbey Road, the second side of which would have to number among my top 100 essential recordings.

Golden slumbers fill your eyes.
Smiles await you when you rise.

Thank you Robert Moog. Generations of music lovers will remember your incredible contribution. Rest in peace.
