Well, that came as a surprise - didn't even notice we'd reached the magic number. I won't repost all the original rules, as we've deviated from them quite a bit.

The object of the game is to link the two entities (person/place/film/whatever) posted by the setter. The setter may insist that the route from one to the other must be the one that he/she has in mind, or may decide that an alternative route suggested by a player is just as viable and pass the baton (as it were) to that person. Deviations from musical links are allowed.

Thanks for the invitation to carry on, Al. I'll be back soon with a link to Will Smith.

Will Smith was in Independence Day with Gary Hecker who was in Hollow Man with Kevin Bacon?

Not what I had in mind, Al. My link is related to the original rules of our venerable game.

PS - I've edited my OP to try to explain the rules, such as they are.

OK...whilst I've heard of the whatever it is of Kevin Bacon, it's just something people say as far as I'm concerned. Never bothered to find out more.

Found this on-line, any good?

1. Will Smith and Jon Voight in ENEMY OF THE STATE
2. Jon Voight and Burt Reynolds in DELIVERANCE .
3. Burt Reynolds and Demi Moore in STRIP TEASE .
4. Demi Moore and Kevin Bacon in A FEW GOOD MEN .

Nope, although it is an example of the phenomenon.

Maybe you should bother to find out about whatever it is of Kevin Bacon.

Hi Sj, not what I'm looking for. (It's not an example of the phenomenon, more the phenomenon itself.)

Shot in the dark...

Six degrees of Kevin Bacon...Six degrees of separation included Will Smith?

Of course.

Will Smith starred in the film version of 'Six Degrees of Separation', which references the theory that everyone in the world is connected to everyone else by no more than six steps; the game 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' arose from the actor's prolific career, and the idea that he could be linked to any other actor in more more than six moves. Which is kinda what we do here.
(It could have been any number of actors, but 'Kevin Bacon' scans with, and very nearly rhymes with, 'separation')

European Championship Athletics meet at our local stadium this weekend, a tad tired!

Kevin Bacon to Chaka Khan

Need to start from very early in KB's career....

Kevin Bacon appeared in 'National Lampoon's Animal House' which featured songs by Stephen Bishop on the soundtrack. Bishop duetted on 'Save It For A Rainy Day' with Chaka Khan.

Well done with getting the film nc, and I'd forgotten the link to Stephen Bishop. Must admit it is one of my fave 'frat' films and KB plays his part well in it. You now need another actor from that film...a familial link...and all should become apparent...

John Belushi was in NLAH, and also in 'The Blues Brothers', the final scene of which featured Chaka Khan as the lead singer in James Brown's choir.

Nice, like that...but that's not what I'm after...a different actor

Rats - I was sure that was right, what with 'Brothers' fitting your 'familial' hint. There are a lot of people in NLAH, we could be here some time. (Where is everybody else, by the way?)

nocheese says:
I'll start with the best known - Donald Sutherland. His son's full name is Kiefer William Frederick Dempsey George Rufus Sutherland, and Chaka Khan was in a band called Rufus.

Is the right answer!!! I'd have a go at euromillions this week if I were you. All yours nc....

I have no idea where everyone is nc....I'm quite used to sharing these pages with the tumbleweed and keening winds....

Talk about dumb luck - I think you're right about the euromillions.

Chaka Khan to Chicago.

PS - you really should have got the one with 'Rufus' as the link, Lez!

Chaka Khan was raised on Chicago's south side....simples! No? ;-)

As I'm sure you well know, Al, the answer is ...no.
