    Died on Sunday 21st Aug, aged 71.

    First time I saw the Moog modular, on the back of Tomita's 'Snowflakes are Dancing' album, I was hooked and it has shaped a large part of my musical taste ever since....PJ

    I read his obituary in the paper this morning. The effect he had on modern music cannot be overestimated. :)

    I'm ashamed to say I didn't realise there was a Mr Moog :blush: I've never wondered about the inventor of it before.

    Sorry to hear that, very sad news

    There is a splendid DVD simply called "Moog" (pronounced they same way as Vogue!!??) that is worth renting/buying that tells the story of the keyboard

    Did you know that the Monkees had the second one evrer built and the first recorded piece on "Star Collector"

    Thanks I have that DVD on my rental list, I must bump it up. I didn't know the Monkees had the 2nd one. I know the Rolling Stones were early dabblers, a Moog was featured in a strange arty film with Jagger - was it 'Performance'?

    Tangerine Dream did some amazing stuff with the Moog in thir early years, try 'Rubycon', 'Ricochet' or 'Encore'.

    One of the earliest (if not THE first) all Moog album was George Harrison's Electronic Sounds on Apple's Zapple label :thumbsup:
