ERIK NORLANDER: It's Bob's Birthday

Today is the birthday of Robert Moog (1934-2005) pioneer of electronic music and inventer of the eponymous synthesiser.

In fact his name has become synonymous with synthesisers (to those of us of a certain age) in the same way as J. Edgar Hoover's name became synonymous with vacuum cleaners (maybe I didn't get that last bit completely right)

Erik Norlander wrote to me this morning:

"I've published the first video from our forthcoming DVD, "The Galactic Collective - Live in Gettysburg," in honor of Dr. Robert Moog's birthday, today, May 23rd. And I'm not the only one. Check out the Google Doodle at, and google.everwhere else! Would you please make a Gonzo blog post about this?

Of course I will, Erik!

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
