Here is the Atlanta band genome in all its third draft glory, fully exploded in every direction to illustrate how all these bands are interconnected through their members, as we are well aware that no musician can be in just one band. The bands highlighted in yellow were ones that yours truly played in.
Please let me know what additions and corrections you might have, and I'll do my best to update the document. The only requirement for inclusion is that the band in question must have played at least one live show.
January 20 Update - Dr. Kinje has officially linked Noot d' Noot to John Coltrane in 5 steps, so I'm not sure how more absurd it can get. Of course I had to update the document to add that bit. The list keeps growing, so keep adding comments.
