Is the verve or is it the persona? How much of an influence does the performer’s name have on the crowd? Would Johnny Cash, Eddie Money, Tom Cruise, River Phoenix, Chris Rock, Paris Hilton be any less fascinating in physical presence alone? Explore the notoriety or the appeal of the name behind the spectacle. Does being a Barrymore, Sheen, Fonda, Howard, or Coppola make something out of nothing? Does Hollywood provide the grit or does the audience induce the alchemy?
Some names are catchy, others are not. Does that make a difference in success. A good idea for an article. – Joseph Cernik3 years ago
