Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of Irish band The Cranberries, died suddenly on Monday at 46 years of age. Publicist Lindsey Holmes confirmed the news. O’Riordan was discovered in London where she was recording. No immediate cause of death was available. No statements have been made, but Holmes said O’Riordan’s family is “devastated” by the news. The Cranberries became international stars in the 1990s with hits including “Zombie” and “Linger,” both of which can be enjoyed below.
It has been said that rock and roll is an attitude. If true, then few acts working today embody the spirit of real rock quite like New York up and comers The Nectars. “Heaven,” the band’s debut single, is a brash and devilish track that crawls under your skin and makes a home inside your bones. A first listen brings to mind a late night spent under dim lights in a crowded room where the walls are wet with sweat and the stink of cheap cigarettes fills the air.
The phone only rang twice before Brian Logan Dales answered. It was only a few days before Christmas 2017, and though California may have been experiencing another warm December there was a suitcase nearby filled with winter clothes. “I’m spending Christmas back home in Michigan,” he says following a brief greeting. “My family splits time between Arizona and Michigan. I haven’t been there for Christmas in probably fifteen years.
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".
