Corgan Setting Up Moog Museum
SMASHING PUMPKINS star BILLY CORGAN is helping set up a museum dedicated to late electronic synthesiser pioneer BOB MOOG.
The Today rocker has joined forces with the Bob Moog Foundation to restore and preserve Moog's archives, which were left in a state of disrepair when he died in 2005.
Corgan also hopes to establish scholarships in Moog's name.
In a statement, he says, "I believe Bob Moog to be one of the great visionaries of our time. His ideas far transcend use in just music, and, to this day, continue to have an impact in everything from rock to rap to quantum physics.
"I strongly believe many people all over the world would benefit from being able to interact with the thoughts, ideas, inventions, and life of Dr. Moog."
