That's a heck of a list, Janet! The Beatles! Big O! Dusty!
First proper gig I went to was in 1975 at Cardiff Castle, a five-hour marathon, the line up was Thin Lizzy, Man, Steeleye Span and 10cc.
When I was in Germany in 1978 I saw Bob Dylan at the Westfalenhalle in Dortmund. All went quiet when the kids were growing up apart from Duane Eddy, Tommy Roe and The Crickets (the then Mr And was a lot older than me)
I had a spirited burst of gig-going in the Nineties which included the Manic Street Preachers, Pulp (twice), Radiohead, the Lightning Seeds and Page and Plant.
These days it's mostly folky or bluesy acts at our local live music club. In the past we've had Vin Garbutt, (Radio 2 Folk Awards Best Live Act) Kieran Halpin, Jez Lowe, Harvey Andrews, Judy Dinning, Robin Laing and Mike Silver (had a big radio hit with 'A Matter of Pride') plus many others who deserved to be far more famous than they are/were - probably most notably the late John Wright, Adrian Nation and Eddie Walker.
Kieran Halpin's long been my favourite but John Wright had a voice that was magical. He died two years ago and is so missed.
My guess is that you can't embed You Tube on here as you can on some forums but here is an URL for John Wright. The song is Dougie McLean's Down Too Deep - the fantastic fiddle player is Joe Wright (no relation) and the wonderful backing guitar and backing vocals are by Joe Topping.
Wisdom comes from experience. Experience is often a result of lack of wisdom.
