Ličnost godine: Connor Oberst (Bright Eyes/Desaparecidos/Saddle Creek…)
Connor ima samo 22 godine i već nekoliko karijera iza sebe. Čini se da svake godine postaje zreliji za bar desetak godina “normalnog” ljudskog života. Nadam se da će na sledećoj evropskoj turneji posetiti i Beograd.

Zemlja godine: Španija
Nacho Vegas, Mus, Nosoträsh, Acuarela Records, Elephant Records … Benicassim Festival … Samo su neke od ključnih stvari nove španske pop muzike. Ja sam apsolutno očaran i zatečen i ne prestajem da se divim…

Tragedija godine: neshvatljiva smrt Mary Hansen (Stereolab)

Hajlajt godine: U stvari ima ih dva – koncert Sonic Youth u Olimpiji u junu 2002. i dolazak Nine Nastasie u Beograd u septembru 2002.

Crna rupa: dolazak Roling Stonesa u Beograd na leto 2003. u organizaciji Vlade Republike Srbije i Makse Ćatovića (Komuna) sa vrlo neobičnom ulogom Ivana Ivačkovića kao čoveka koji nema nikakve veze sa organizacijom, ali mnogo voli Stonse… Ako će Vlada Srbije i ubuduće da organizuje koncerte – daj da im damo spisak pa nek’ Čeda i ekipa rade…

Izdavačka kuća godine:
Engleska etiketa Gravity Label – sa 4 fenomenalne ploče – The Vessels (s/t), Grand Drive, Will Kimborugh i Jeff Finlin – legendarni Nick Stewart je svima pokazao kako treba voditi etiketu sa nekomercijalnim izdanjima.
