Thanks to Pop Chart Lab’s massive Charted Connections of Rock chart, which maps out the links between 727 artists — and over 500 bands — and denotes degrees of separation across musical genres and generations, we now suspect Eric Clapton is the Kevin Bacon of music.

Probably inspired, or influenced, by artists such as Ed Roth, artist Otto Splotch has that punky, sometimes gross, but always interesting style.
