From the 1960s to the present, synthesized sounds have played a huge part in shaping music, often to the dismay of rock 'n' roll traditionalists. Join us as we follow the rise of the electric keyboard, from the fringes of modern music to the mainstream, and how these futuristic instruments remain a part of today's most popular acts. Music legends Moby, Booker T. Jones, Andy Summers, Gary Numan and more share their personal stories about working with, and being part of, one of the biggest revolutions in rock 'n' roll.
