4 October: Radiohead Win Q Award
Radiohead have been awarded "Best Act In The World Today" at the 14th Annual Q Awards. However, the band refused to attend the ceremony after Q Magazine allegedly called them "boring" and instead sent a silent video message. Nigel Godrich also picked up the "Best Producer" award for Radiohead's "Hail to the Thief" album. Other winners included Blur, The Thrills, The Cure, Duran Duran and Dexys Midnight Runners.
