Steve, Thanks for the post. Robert Moog's synthesizer may be the most influential musical instrument in history. And, thank you Larry for sharing your experiences.

We had a professional friendship with Bob for 20 years. For all his fame and legacy he was one of the most gracious and warm people you could ever meet.

It's a cultural history of the synthesizer replete with all kinds of details, including anecdotes on how Ikutaro Kakehashi named his company 'Roland' by flipping through an American telephone directory, amongst other things.
