“Its rhyme and lyrical style has made collectors call it one of the first rap songs,” says archivist Andy Rasmussen of the song titled “Bucket O’ Blood.” Rasmussen will soon reissue the 1962 track recorded by onetime local Ervin Groves Jr.“Big Boy Groves” had a 1955 hit with “I Gotta New Car” on the Spark label, as well as singles such as “Big Boy’s Bounce,” “You Can’t Beat the Horses,” and others.
"I have dual British and USA citizenship,” says guitarist Taz Taylor, who grew up in England before moving to San Diego in 1997. Since settling in Imperial Beach, he’s released a series of guitar-centered albums, all of them carried by multiple overseas labels, including Welcome to America (2006), Straight Up (2009), Big Dumb Rock (2010), and Deja Voodoo (2014), the latter featuring cover art by Michael Schenker Group cover painter Tristan Greatrex, who also created the original MSG logo.
Albert Lee and Cindy Cashdollar will perform as a duo at Irwin M. Jacobs Qualcomm Hall on September 9, a benefit concert in support of NAMM’s Museum of Making Music. Lee probably needs little or no introduction, as an acclaimed guitarist with the Crusaders, the Thunderbirds, and occasionally the Biff Baby All-Stars (whose roster has included Eddie Van Halen and Steve Morse, among others).
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".
