From Monday’s Ashville Citizen Times and Paul Clark :

Robert Moog, whose Moog synthesizers are as influential in modern music as they have been to jazz and rock since the late 1960s, died Sunday. He was 71.

“We™re going to miss him, Michael Adams, president of Moog Music, said in Asheville. œThis guy has affected the lives of literally tens of thousands of people.

Moog™s family has established The Bob Moog Foundation dedicated to the advancement of electronic music. Among the many of Moog™s longtime collaborators to agree to sit on its executive board are Rick Wakeman, keyboard player for the ™70 classical rock supergroup Yes, and Wendy Carlos, whose recording œSwitched-On Bach brought Moog™s synthesizers to national prominence.
