I think I saw all of these in concert for those respective tours or just before/after.
Prior to the 1980's classic jazz ruled the roost in my house and today, I am forever grateful for that.
I turned 14 in 1980 and had just started going to live concerts so by then all these bands plus others (from the 70's and early 80's) became the soundtrack of my life for the first half of that decade.
By 1985 jazz and bands like Tower of Power and Chaka Khan / Rufus began to take over the record player and is still what I mainly listen to today.
I still occasionally listen to some 70's and 80's rock to this day for the simple fact of - I still like it and it means something to me emotionally as it provides fond memories for things I was doing at the time.
