(Miami Herald)   Paul Tanner, the last surviving member of the Glenn Miller orchestra has died at 95. Oh yes, and he invented the electro-theramin. That would be that space age sounding instrument you heard on the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations   (miamiherald.com) divider line 10

FAIL, submitter.  Tanner only performed on the theramin

It is named after the westernized-name of its Russian inventor Léon Theremin, who patented the device in 1928.

Good Vibrations?  Is that the song they used on the Sunkist soda commercials?

You aren't alone my friend. Of course this shows only what I have in iTunes. Most of my big band is on LP (and a few 78s).

Thank you subby for treating us like we're 12 years old by bringing to our attention the death of something 90 years old which was a member of something 70 years old that invented something 60 years old that was used in something 50 years old.

ACTUALLY, subby is correct.

Tanner invented an instrument called the Electro-Theremin, which is somewhat different than the Theremin.
