BOB MOOG 1934 - 2005
A public memorial celebration is planned for Wednesday at the Orange Peel Club in Asheville, North Carolina.
An interest in the Theremin from age 14 led Bob Moog to create and manufacture his own electronic instruments starting with the first commercially available modular synth in 1964 and leading on to such classics as the Mini Moog. He was clearly the father of electronic music with genre changing contributions across half a century.
I met Bob many times at various NAMM shows and I will remember his patience and kindness. Bob was always prepared to pose for a photo or give a memorable quote. All at Sonic State will miss him immenseley.
