Best of rock music 2017

BEST OF ROCK MUSIC 2017

Η προτελευταία  μέρα του 2017…
...Μεγάλη λύπη και μεγάλο σοκ. Λίγο πριν υποδεχτούμε τη νέα χρονιά με ευχές και ελπίδες... Έφυγε από την παρέα μας (μουσική και μη ) ο φίλος και μουσικός συμπαραγωγός αλλά και μοναδικός μουσικός  και όχι μόνο σαν μπασίστας αλλά και πολύ καλός γνώστης της ροκ μουσικής Κώστας Τζούνης....
                                                           Kostas June-is                      R.I.P

...Μαέστρο είμαι σίγουρος ότι όλα τα μεγάλα ονόματα που θα συναντήσεις εκεί πάνω θα σε αγκαλιάσουν στην ροκ παρέα τους γιατί είχες μια μοναδικότητα στην έκφραση σου, και ένα απίστευτο χιούμορ, που γινόσουν αγαπητός σε κάθε παρέα.
Καλό ταξίδι φίλε. ..




Πέρα όμως από την κοντινή μας αυτή απώλεια το 2017 μας στέρησε μεγάλα ονόματα από τον ρόκ χώρο, θυμίζοντάς μας ότι οι ζωντανοί θρύλοι γίνονται όλο και λιγότεροι, αφήνοντας σε μας μια μεγάλη κληρονομιά από μουσικά διαμάντια που υποχρέωσή μας είναι να τα φροντίζουμε να λάμπουν πάντα.
