This book is a thorough account of the year that caught everyone's ear. Elvis was sighted in the top spot of The Billboard 200. The Rolling Stones rocked the album charts at #2. An American Idol grabbed Pop chart glory. Nelly nabbed #1 for 17 straight weeks. And, a bevy of female vocalists delivered huge chart hits. Only in Joel Whitburn's 2002 Billboard Music Yearbook will you find as complete, as concise, and as compelling a chronicle of all of the hits and artists of 2002. It's the perfect annual supplement to ten Record Research books.
