Synth pioneer Edit

One passage refers to "George's work on the then new instrument — the synthesiser — in 1969."

I think this passage should be reworded as it could be slightly misleading. According to the Wikipedia article, although the modern synthesiser was (re-)invented by RCA (who invented the term "synthesiser") in the 1950s, and first brought to the mass market by Robert Moog in the 1960s (the first synthesiser album being The In Sound from Way Out!, 1966), the first synth (the Teleharmonium) was invented in 1895. Should this section be rephrased? Or would a link to the Wikipedia article be sufficient? — RobertATfm (talk) 19:31, June 23, 2014 (UTC)
