In the late 1990s and into the 2000s Bacon joined his musician brother, Michael, in a duo ensemble, called Bacon Brothers. With three albums to their credit by 2001 and increasingly preoccupied with his new career diversion as a rock star, Bacon's tour schedule included eight concerts for the summer of that year, at venues from New York City, down the East Coast, and into the Midwest to Illinois and Missouri.

The Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon

Bacon is the subject of the trivia game, Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. It is based on the idea that, due to his prolific screen career, any Hollywood actor can be "linked" to another in a handful of "steps" based on their associations with Bacon. Although it has since been proven that there are other "better" centers of the Hollywood universe than Bacon, such as Sean Connery, Rod Steiger, or the prolific Michael Caine, Bacon's name remained the focus because he was the first one picked by the creators of the game, and because his name "Kevin Bacon" sounds like the original word in the phrase "Six degrees of separation." A person's number of degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon can be known as his or her "Bacon Number".
