    A War of Words

    The Rock Star Branding Podcast
    Episode #28


    Join Brian Thompson, Michael Brandvold & Steve Jones for a fun and engaging 14 min. discussion on the topic of a conscious, controversial publicity moves done to stir up press.

    In this episode we chat about the ongoing feud between Elton John and Madonna, to radio DJs fighting with competing stations, to hair metal bands fighting with each other in the 80's, to Oasis' Gallagher brothers fighting amongst themselves.

    Is this something an artist should ever consider consciously doing to get the attention of the masses?
