Oh, I'm familiar with their history ... it is just that in ~82 they were already part of the dinosaur rock era, later called classic rock. They were still on the radio - and their pre-Coda album got some pop radio airplay. I am just saying that the time between their heyday (early 70's) and now is 30 years ... and for me, as a teenager in ~82, that would equate with music from the early 50's - the pre-rock era. It is just interesting, that's all.
