Happy Birthday Robert Moog!

Correction: The original entry referred to Robert Moog as still alive. He died in 2005.

Robert Moog would have been 79 today. He invented the analogue Moog synthesizer that first gained notoriety at a performance during the 1967 Monterey International Pop Festival. It's been used by keyboard lovers like Stevie Wonder ever since.
