Bob Moog Day

May 23, 2009

Bob Moog would have been 75 today.
One of my first ever virtual fan letters I ever sent someone when I first got onto the web was to Bob Moog. I received a reply a week later that I am pretty certain was from him and not from an assistant, webmaster, etc. (I like to think so anyway).

Bob’s innovations transformed music forever. He was also a humble man who made it clear that he was just one in a long line of inventors and researchers.
The documentary on him, Moog is fascinating and I highly recommend it.
