An initiative of online interviews that have turned into a book, this is the proposal of the author Cristi I. Popescu for this volume. An approach not only commendable, but especially necessary given that the rock community, with all the staff adjacent to the image presented on stage by artists and bands, was at least as affected by the rigors that followed the Covid-19 pandemic and whose consequences can still be seen - both online and offline.

The names gathered in the book in question are large, representative of the rock community - and here we refer not only to those who sing and are seen in the foreground at a concert or on a poster, but also to photographers, producers of shows radio, journalists, painters or writers. So, the interviewees from #RockInStareDeUrgenta and, therefore, from the volume The Final Lockdown, are: Alin (Coiotu ') Dinca (from TROOPER), Paul Ciuci (from COMPACT), Cristian Hrubaru (talking here especially about Bikers For Humanity ), Ovidiu ANTON, Alex Dona (About wine), Florin Tibu (also known as Crivat, from BUCOVINA), Iulian Agapie (Rock'N'Paint), Tibor Kati (Sur Austru), Titus Constantinescu (Let's ROCK), Dan BYRON, Mihai Vasilescu, Dan Costea (COMA), Alex Florescu (FREE RIDERS), Adelin Petrisor, Cezar Paul-Badescu and Laurentiu Mandu.

Although distinct in their statements, all these voices retain a common denominator, a unitary tone, convinced and informed, emphasizing the importance and social relevance of the rock phenomenon in Romania and, in Eastern Europe, the hope for an optimistic future that does not affect, through the prism of the pandemic, the concerts that would take place, all this having the huge potential to contradict - perhaps without necessarily proposing - a skeptic or a contestant of the image of the Romanian rocker. Often, it is perceived, outside the family context, as a danger or social harm. In reality, in the words and deeds of those interviewed, rock is a great family, one always put on good deeds, which helps unconditionally and without paying too much attention to it (see the constant campaigns with which it is associated, among others, Cristian Hrubaru, for example). But the book does not seem to necessarily address the novices, but rather those who are really interested in the pandemic evolution of the lives of the representatives of some of the most famous bands in Romania.

Bonus, besides the unmissable discussions, would be the reviews made by the author of the new albums of those invited to the discussions, thus giving a wider context to their work - pre and post pandemics alike. And this way of contextualizing, reviewing the work of the artists gathered in the book persists even when Cristi I. Popescu talks about books ("Fear of my shadow", the new book by Cezar Paul-Badescu), about painting (and the extraordinary talent proves near the stage Iulian Agapie when he paints during a concert) or photography (with Mihai Vasilescu he talks about both radio and his quality as a photographer, following some directions of the life of such an artist - as well, before and during pandemic, since an "after" cannot be firmly intuited, but only dreamed) or journalism (Adelin Petrisor being, most likely, the most suitable man to draw parallels between the state of war and the state of emergency, needs and obstacles in the case of pain caused by weapons and those caused by the disease for which no cure had yet been found when these materials were registered).

A well-knit volume, without too much "poetry", without unnecessary "jewels", but a calm and warm one, like a discussion between friends that the reader can dream of having as friends, and to which we have access in a curated form successfully - and certainly as with great pleasure - by the author, responding to a need of the Romanian rock public.
