Artist Simon Patterson has plotted musicians on the London Tube map using each line for a genre, and transfer points for crossover artists.

Vey interesting result.

That is very cool! Thanks for sharing. Obviously it pleases me that my favourite band is a major transfer point :D

I'm posting this one here because it's also the London Underground:

Tube Anagram Map

Got this one off Carto-SOC. Right time for it too, just this morning I was making arrangements for my trip to London in a little over a month :D

I must say I feel Johnny Cash is falsely muso-referenced. He belongs to a junction of folk, country, soundtracks, rock, pop, gangsta rap and gospel.
Heck he deserves his on tube line which crosses all non-electronic major lines!
But now I´m definitely OT...
:D
