* This band's lead singer was in a long-term relationship in 1978 when he walked into a clothing store where a high school student (who had a boyfriend herself) worked. The age difference between them was 8 years, but that didn't deter the artist. With his girlfriend looking on, he invited the younger girl to a show. Ultimately a year later after they met, they started dating, even getting engaged at one point, but his lifestyle was just too much and after 5 years, everything ended. But not before this song that included her name became very popular. Name the band and song
*This band cut a follow-up album to their immensely successful 1974 album the following year, but the process was plagued by creative and artistic differences with members walking out on 3 different occasions. The band had lost its drummer in 1974 due to a drug overdose and that was a huge blow to the remaining members. The producer persevered and got the band through the recording of the new album. Name the funk and R& B band
*This band's singer and guitarist wrote the lyrics to this popular song while in a cab on the way to Heathrow airport. He just wrote down what he saw and how he felt as the cab was winding the way through traffic. He didn't end up singing the lead on this track, but that honor went to a singer that also sang with the band Ace and Mike And The Mechanics. Name the song, the band and extra credit for the dude that sang it
*We'll play a song that was released as a single only in the US as the record label elsewhere wanted to encourage people to buy albums rather than 45s. The artist, who changed his name in 1977 and stopped making secular music in 1979, actually released a boxed set of his old songs as he came to realize that people found strength and inspiration in his older songs. Name the artist (both names)
