Bob Moog, Synth Pioneer, Dies at 71

Bob Moog, the inventor of the Moog synthesizer and the ongoing visionary behind Moog Music's effects, synths, and theremins, died at his home Sunday. Thousands have left memories and wishes on a Website set up by his family since his diagnosis with brain cancer was made public. While the memorial will be private, reflections are still welcome on that site, and The Bob Moog Foundation will help ensure his legacy continues to touch musicians. For a glimpse of why this is emotional for so many music makers around the world, flip through the archived photos. It's hard to find a picture of Bob alone: he's always grinning ear to ear, with a musician or two in his arms. —P. Kirn
