I freely admit that it's been a long time since I've bought a Spider-Man comic, so I guess I must have missed the issue in which perennially addled rock star Ozzie Osbourne became Doctor Octopus.
Just look at 'em! Tell me they didn't base his new look on Ozzie. They're exactly the same, right down to the round red glasses! I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise. After all, rock stars have always looked and acted like comic book characters. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to imagine Keith Richards or Marilyn Manson as Spidey villains.
