5. Brian Wilson vs. Mike Love
The Californian band has a long history of battles particularly around who exactly owns the name of the band. In 2012, rumours were rife that Mike Love fired Brian Wilson and other members from the band following their exclusion from a Beach Boys tour. Although Love denied this saying “We are partners. He’s my cousin by birth and my brother in music,” Love is on tour in 2015 under the Beach Boys name with a substitute band.
