A national treasure returned to the Hollywood Bowl over the weekend. Tony Bennett, who will turn an unbelievable 92 years old in a couple weeks, headlined a venue that, in itself, is a national treasure last Friday and Saturday (and that last evening featured a surprise appearance by Lady Gaga, who joined him on “The Lady is a Tramp” and “Cheek to Cheek”).
Beatles main songwriters John Lennon and Paul McCartney lost the songwriting royalties right to 267 of their songs nearly 50 years ago. Through the subsequent decades, McCartney has been trying to get his songs back. Finally, the 75-year-old, who is the most successful composer in music history, has succeeded. Through a series of complex business dealings, Lennon and McCartney lost the rights to their songs in 1969.
He was retired for a decade, but apparently, Phil Collins is enjoying the heck out of being un-retired and back in the game. He just added six more stops in the U.K. to his “Not Dead Yet” tour later this year, and he has locked in makeup dates for two recent cancellations. The fans have reacted rapturously to his return, packing every show to the rafters. The dates will occur in the last week of November and the first week of December.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
