Progrocks.gr playlists: October 2020

October was a month with numerous very interesting new releases and lots of bad news regarding the coronavirus pandemic, but without a doubt the reason that this month will be forever remembered is the tragic news of the passing of the great Eddie Van Halen, an artist who managed to change the way the electric guitar is played, transmitting his unquenchable smile to all of us.

We hope our playlists will give lots of ideas for new listening experiences, of both recent and older releases. Next month we will focus on intriguing and long-awaited upcoming releases. Not all news of 2020 is bad. So let’s emphasize on the good stuff and keep the legacy of the late greats.
