A Moog Point

In news that will upset alot of 80s keyboard tragics and early 90s hip hop heads alike, Robert Moog, inventor of the Moog (pronounced like "vogue") synthesiser has died at 71. His first voltage controlled synth was created in 1964, and hit mainstream popularity with the release of Switched-On Bach, an album by Walter Carlos, that used only the Moog synthesiser. So today we honour the man that helped bring success to the likes of Wham! and Afrika Bambataa. Hooray for Moog!
