The season’s most sensational book on the media -- Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine -- is also the juiciest music read in ages. Author Joe Hagan, an accomplished journalist who has written for Billboard, was granted full access to Wenner – who co-founded and has edited Rolling Stone throughout its 50-year history — and his meticulously kept archives for the book, out Oct. 27.
Forty-three years have passed since a former music critic named Jon Landau famously wrote, “I saw rock and roll future and its name is Bruce Springsteen” in a May 1974 issue of Boston’s The Real Paper.” In the decades that have ensued, Springsteen, with the backing of his crack E Street Band and Landau, who, became the Jersey rocker’s manager in 1978, made good on that prediction. In 2016, Springsteen and the E Street band had the No.
Justin Timberlake, Ariana Grande, The Roots & More Shine at Dave Matthews' Music and Unity ConcertA fedora perched on his head and black capri pants high on his calves, Justin Timberlake peered out at the capacity crowd of approximately 40,000 at the University of Virginia’s Scott Stadium in Charlottesville, VA. He and his 14-piece band, The Tennessee Kids, had just performed a fiery version of “Cry Me A River” that had concertgoers on the floor attempting to imitate his slick dance moves.
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".
