News : Dr. Bob Moog R.I.P.

Sad news that the synth pioneer Dr. Bob Moog has died at the age of 71 after suffering from a brain tumour.

He was a crazy electronics expert who helped to shape the future of synthesized music way back in the 60s. Without him we wouldn’t have had the great electronic music that we have today. There would have been no house music for us girls and boys to enjoy. 🙁

If you get a chance to see this indepent film about his work and the people who use Moog synthesisers then do so. I watched recently and it was great (but a bit geeky!). Rest in peace Dr. Moog.
