      Always loved them myself. Before them it was occasionally used in pop as background, by groups like the Doors [“Strange Days”], the Beatles [“Here Comes The Sun”, “Because”, “I Want You (She’s So Heavy)”] or, surprisingly, Simon & Garfunkel [“Save The Life Of My Child”].
      There was also this horrible album by Walter [aka Wendy] Carlos, pioneer and collaborator of dr. Moog himself, called “Switched On Bach”, where he literally butchers Bach in the name of technology… He did a better job with Purcell on the Clockwork Orange OST, though.
      But Keith Emerson [RIP] was the one who put the moog on the tip of the spear, in such a brilliant way. ELP were always vilified by the so-called musical press, and, finally destroyed by the arrival of punk, like too many other bands of the ’60s & ’70s…
      Thanks!
