Jet Triumph At Aria Awards

Melbourne rockers JET were crowned kings of last night's (17OCT04) AUSTRALIAN RECORD INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION (ARIA) AWARDS, when they picked up six accolades.

The band - CAMERON MUNCEY, MARK WILSON, NIC CESTER and CHRIS CESTER - won Best Band, Album Of The Year, Best Rock Album, and Breakthrough Artist Album Of The Year for GET BORN and Best Single and Breakthrough Artist Single Of The Year for ARE YOU GONNA BE MY GIRL, at the star-studded ceremony in Sydney's Superdome.

During one of their many acceptance speeches, guitarist Muncey said, "I'd like to thank God, but I can't because rock 'n' roll is the devil's music."

Country singer KASEY CHAMBERS beat DELTA GOODREM and KYLIE MINOGUE to the Best Female Artist accolade and also picked up Best Country Album for her disc WAYWARD ANGEL.

Recent cancer survivor Goodrem won the Highest Selling Album trophy for her debut LP INNOCENT EYES, for which she picked up six gongs at last year's (03) ARIAs.

Rocker JOHN BUTLER was named Best Male Artist, while his band the JOHN BUTLER TRIO were honoured for their disc SUNRISE OVER SEA as Best Blues + Roots Album.
