Dr. Robert Moog
1934 - 2005
very sad to report that my friend, Bob Moog, genius-inventor of
the Moog synthesizer, passed away on August 21st, 2005.
Without his amazing
instrument, I certainly could not have achieved all the success
I have had with my music, and I will be forever grateful for his
contribution to popular music, and in helping me set up my Moog
in my NYC studio, back in the '60s.
Rest well, Bob.

of 2003. I have also interviewed his daughter Patricia in her
