Summary

Summary

Based on the author’s extensive research, this is the authorized biography of Robert Moog, inventor of the electronic synthesizer, which changed the world of music.

Switched On tells the story of Robert Moog and the history of the invention that electrified the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival and which was quickly embraced by top performers, including the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Byrds, the Monkees, and later Dr. Dre, Billy Joel, Marilyn Manson, and numerous others.

Albert Glinsky draws on his exclusive access to archives and new, original interviews he conducted as part of his extensive research. The book also recounts Moog’s life story from his childhood in Flushing, Queens, through his marriage to Shirley May Leigh, their four children, their eventual divorce, Moog’s remarriage, through his death in 2005, and his continuing legacy. The book also traces the history of Moog’s business ventures, most of which lost money, and examines his lasting influence and place in American culture.
