Powderfinger: Band Of The Year

Jeff Apter, Rolling Stone (Australia), April 2001

POWDERFINGER ARE THE Rolling Stone 2000 Music Award heroes. The results are in and thousands of you voted for them. Powderfinger are Band Of The Year, 'My Happiness' is the Best Single and Odyssey Number Five is the Best Album of 2000. Still the question remains: is it possible to be the biggest band in the country and remain ordinary blokes from Brisbane? The 'finger speak.
