Forty years ago, things were looking up for the Jacksonville boys in Lynyrd Skynyrd. They already were kings of the Southern rock scene, they’d added a new hotshot guitar player to the lineup and their new album, “Street Survivors,” had just been released. Then came the plane crash. Forty years ago today, the band was flying from a show in Greenville, S.C., to the next stop on the tour, in Baton Rouge, La., when their chartered Convair CV-240 ran out of fuel and crashed in the Mississippi woods.
Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie are bringing their Fleetwood Mac side project to Jacksonville for a show in November. Buckingham and McVie recently released an album, “Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie,” recorded during a break from their work with Fleetwood Mac. They launched a tour in June and added 22 dates this week, including a show at the Moran Theatre at the Times-Union Center for Performing Arts on Sunday, Nov. 12. Tickets will be $57-$122.50.
Comedian Katt Williams is making a live album and CD Friday and Saturday night at the Florida Theatre. But he’s hardly the first act to capture a Jacksonville show live and release it as an album. A lot of fans thought this album was recorded at the Atlanta International Pop Festival, since that’s where the cover photos were shot. But in Billy James’ “An American Band: The Story of Grand Funk Railroad,” the author notes that it was recorded in Jacksonville, Sarasota and West Palm Beach.
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".
