Sad day indeed. One of the first pioneers of electronic music. For those who are interested the documentary "Moog" is a great introduction to the man and his machines:
Thank you Bob!
sad day indeed
He will be missed
A true pioneer in music. I will never forget the first time I screwed around with a Moog. Even though I had no idea what I was doing with it, the creations I made inspired me towards a career in the industry.
You will be missed.
So should we patch a pipe-organ and play the funeral march or a trumpet and play Taps?
Miss ya, Bob.
Geddy Lee and one of his early Moogs:
Sad news. Brilliant man, he really revolutionized the idea of electronic music.
Rest in peace.
He and Walter Carlos gave me a new perspective on Bach's music.
brilliant man, brilliant invention.
I want to cryyyyyyyyy :...(
He was like Santa Claus for me, when I started in to electronic music in early 90's I had a Roland JV 80 and it was my first tool to create sounds and in my audio engineer class we had exams with the Mini Moog and the Korg version of the Mini Moog (that was actually easier by the way).
Today is Robert Moog and I am terrify if I heard the same new from Vangelis!!!! he is about the same age or even older!!!
they were the Gods of the electronic era
My prayers go out to his family and friends. May he rest in peace.
As soon as I started reading this thread, this song started playing in iTunes:
Free Fallin' - The Moog Cookbook - Moog Cookbook!
The entire album is covers played entirely on Moog equipment, including any vocals.
My respect for the dead keeps growing. Yeah, I know that doesn't sound right but between the deaths of Indian Larry, John Peel, Hunter S Thompson, and now Moog I just feel like I keep getting hit. I don't know what these guys have in common except that they each had a huge impact and influence on me, on the way I conduct myself and even on my every day activities and I have a lot of respect for each of them.
Mr. Moog, Shine on.
I didn't realize that he lived in Asheville, just a couple of hours' drive away from me here in Charlotte.
And I grew up listening to Switched-On Bach... I'm a huge fan of both Moog and Walter/Wendy Carlos. It's too bad that neither of the S-OB CDs are listed on iTunes; I'd love to recommend some of Carlos' work to all of the music fans here... even if you don't like classical music, I think you'd like Bach on synthesizer.
How sad. The Moog has always been my favorite synth.
I will have to play my parents' Switched On Bach LP in memory of Mr. Moog.
He gave a talk at Cornell when I was a student - all the underground music types showed up for his demo on one of his originals.
The Moog was one in a million - it's hard to replicate its sound. Just listening to Wendy Carlos' Switched on Bach is a great example of its capabilities.
Bloody hell....that just makes my week worse
I remember when I first got to Berklee College of Music, walking down a hallway and coming to a door that said:
Dr. Bob Moog
And I thought, "are they serious?" Now that's a Synth department!
I had a conversation with him on why guitar synths were such crap (in 1992). He was actually hilarious on the subject but predicted that they would become far more usable in the not too distant future. He was right.
Truly a rare individual that left a giant mark.
