This awesome vintage photo captures Micky Dolenz of The Monkees, looking super-cool playing the Moog modular (around June 1967).

The Monkees were early Moog users, featuring it on their more psychedelic tracks, like Daily Nightly (1967).

According to the Moog archives, The Monkees purchased the 20th Moog modular, serial number 1019. The majority of the early modular purchases were made my institutions, because of their cost.
