If a drummer is going to survive as a musician, he needs to know how to play almost everything and anything. Or, as Max Weinberg put it, “A drummer’s job is to know every song, or you don’t work.”As longtime drummer for the E Street Band, Weinberg has not had to worry about finding that next gig for a while. But he has not forgotten that discipline of being familiar with a broad array of material.
Gladys Cratchit has had it. Her wimpy husband, Bob, lets his miserly employer walk all over him. Worse, Mr. Cratchit keeps bringing home stray children (as if they didn’t have enough mouths to feed). The extra kids, numbering more than a dozen, are kept in the basement. So Mrs. Cratchit (who likes to hit the sauce) hits the road with the idea of tossing herself into the Thames. But then she encounters a ghost, and things get really strange.
Carole King and Karen Carpenter never appeared on stage together, as far as Annie Masciandaro knows. “Karen covered a few of Carole’s songs, but they never sang a duet,” said Masciandaro, who sings and drums (as Carpenter did). “It’s something to dream about.”Masciandaro has reason to be interested in those two songstresses, who forged memorable careers in the 1970s. Masciandaro and her friend, singer-pianist Deb DeLuca perform periodically as “Carpenter and King” in a joint tribute concert.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
