“If it weren’t for Bob Moog, a lot of the music you enjoy today, might not have been possible. As the inventor of the Moog Synthesizer, he gave rise to not only the technology needed for modern electronic music, but also the creative spirit that inspired countless musicians to take his vision and play with it, mold it and reshape it into mind blowing works of art.” – NPR
