R.I.P. Robert Moog

Robert Moog, the maverick scientist who invented the music
synthesizer that bears his name, died Sunday of a brain tumor.
He was 71.

Introduced in the mid-1960s, the Moog became an integral device
in the careers of jazz giants like Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis,
and Jan Hammer as well as countless rock acts (Yes, the Monkees)
and soul/r&b stars like Stevie Wonder.

Condolences to the Moog family and to all who knew him well.
