Keith Emerson Shares Moog Rejection Story
Emerson says: "I thought, 'I really need one of these.' I got hold of the Moog company and I said, 'I thought I might get one of these for free. I could promote this - I'll endorse it."
But he says the firm replied with a letter saying: "Thank you for your request, but first of all, the Moog synthesizer is not generally recommended for live stage use.
"Furthermore, if your request is that you want one for free, seeing as the Rolling Stones paid for theirs and the Beatles also paid for theirs, I see no reason why you shouldn't pay for yours." more.
