Living in western BC as a 13 year old, newly initiated to the world of great music and marijuana in the late 70's, I listened to and loved all that southern stuff too Laura
There's just something about great guitar riffage that knows no boundaries
Blues rock, hard rock, southern rock...so much awesome there...great get in the zone, get in the groove, get in the jam, heart & soul. Love it.

Yes to ALL of those Laura! Man I ESPECIALLY have a soft spot for Molly Hatchet. They were the opener for my first real "arena" concert (Triumph, Thunder Seven tour). Hatchet had their full sized white grand piano center stage and during the jam section of Flirtin' With Disaster, all 3 guitarists were standing on top of it. It was magic!
Also, Fall of the Peacemakers, what a song.
And cheers to you as well Craig!
Cool you saw Molly Hatchet in their heyday as well - I believe it was 1978 when I saw them. I haven't even checked how many of the original line-up are still in the band, but seeing their name, as well as The Marshall Tucker Band and The Outlaws (and many others) on the Rock Legends Cruise 2015 was a near instant sell for me.
And wow - Paul Rodgers - you might remember this one.
