Thats sad...cancer sucks :scowl:
Sad. Judging from what I've read there, he's got days to live... tops.
First Greg Curbow...now Bob Moog...
Oh no! Bob Moog is an amazing guy, it'd be such a shame to lose him.
Oh man this is terrible, I can't really add anything to what's already been said, an amazing guy.
Oh, man. What a shock and what depressing news. Bob's always been like a hero to me. I really appreciate people who push the boundaries of what's been done, and he's WAY near the top of that list.
Danged nice fellow, too. Back in my ancient past, I once wrote him a letter (actual mail... pre-Internet) and asked if he would be willing to share the schematics for a couple of synthesizer modules. I was a budding mad scientist type at the time and had cracked a lot of the problems involved with building one's own synth, but there were some things I simply couldn't work out. I thought looking at what he had done might help.
Without hesitation (or charge), he sent me a packet containing the ENTIRE set of schematics for everything in their modular synthesizer line! You could argue that this was pre-MiniMoog, that he had no idea how commercially successful synths would be, that he was only going to sell a few of the modular behemoths and didn't really think releasing schematics would cost him any money, yada yada yada...
... but it was still an astoundingly nice thing to do, and I never, ever forgot his kindness and willingness to share.
Mon Rominee, thanks for making us all aware of this.
just googling the Moog man atm.
regardless of my knowledge of the guy, his condition is tragic.
the names of his products are awesome. maybe its just me but i have a respect for oddly named equipment
Thank God they finished that movie.
forward thinking genius should be in the dictionary under Bob Moog.
I don't know what to say really, except that I'm sad about this.
I've been a part-time synthhead for many years, and I've always been a fan of the Moog sound. Especially the classic Minimoog and Taurus pedals... love them Taurus pedals!
I'm hoping for a miracle, though this does look like the end of his journey.

Wow, this is very sad news.
Great link, thank you very much!
Today Dr. Robert A. Moog passed away.
Thank you Mr. Moog for making my Concertmate MG-1. Porcelain wouldn't be the same song it is without it.
That's really sad. I always loved hearing his innovative products on my favorite albums. My prayers are with his friends and family.
That sucks, him and Curbow in the same week? Damn, a grim time for bassists and musicians everywhere.
I knew he was on the edge but it's still a shock that he finally passed away. Another great loss just like Gary Curbow. My thoughts are with his employees and his family.
Rest in peace.
Makes me look at his signature on my moogs in a different way tbh.
