    From the Moog Music website:

    "ASHEVILLE, N.C. — August 21, 2005 — Bob died this afternoon at his home in Asheville, N.C. He was 71. Bob was diagnosed with brain cancer (glioblastoma multiforme or GBM) in late April 2005. He had received both radiation treatment and chemotherapy to help combat the disease. He is survived by his wife, Ileana, his five children, Laura Moog Lanier, Matthew Moog, Michelle Moog-Koussa, Renee Moog, and Miranda Richmond; and the mother of his children, Shirleigh Moog."

    Now that is sad. He was such a visionary, and just starting to experience the sort of fame that he was due for his contributions to modern music!

    I just got back from taking one of his daughter's best friends to the airport. She has been asked to speak at the memorial on Wednesday.

    It's really, really hard on her after growing up around him and his family. She was actually one of the few kids who painted his old Toyota with the vines, frogs and a snail on his drivers door.

    She's been spending a lot of weekends down there in the past few months...from the stories she told me, Bob is better off.


    RIP Bob.


    Sad times.
