Father of Electronic music

Robert. A. Moog, popularly known as the Father of Electronic music, named after his invention of 'Synthesizer', passed away

Honestly, have not heard of this name before, till i stumbled upon this article. I think, a moment of silence thanking him for the way we now listen to music is not asking too much.

R.I.P

I hv also not heard of him before....but read this article earlier today. the traditional musicians might be cursing him since they lost their jobs bcoz of this modernization.
