    Diver Down,Mistake or Misunderstood?

    I like some of this album.The Full Bug,Oh Pretty Woman,Hang em High are the my highlights.What are your thoughts?
    Aw Mom,You know I'm not like other Guys.I'm nervous and my socks are too loose.

    Mistake or Misunderstood? A little of both.

    Sure songs like Hang 'em High, Little Guitars, Full Bug, and Secrets, are staples on that record, but I just don't like all those cover tunes. EVH is too good of a songwriter/composer to put all those damn cover tunes on one album.
    I blame it all on Warner Bros.

    Agreed,and what was the deal with Big Bad Bill is Sweet William Now?Jan Van Halen on the clarinet was a nice thing thing to do with their dad.But I would have trashed the track on the cutting room floor.

    I actually like that track. You can clearly hear who EVH got his style from. I'm not sure if you play guitar, but if you play that same riff and the same solo on guitar with some good distortion it sound pretty kick ass.

    How do you feel about 'Good Times'?

    Happy Trails is the musical equivalent to smoking crack...don't listen to it.

    I think alot of Edwards guitar work on DD gets over-looked. Hang 'em High is pretty damn hard to play.

    Do you like Dancing In The Streets?

    I always make those noises with my guitar.

    Why is it that more VH fans like PW more than DITS? I don't get it.

    I think Diver Down was a result of Warner Bros. rushing Van Halen to get a record out. I'd prefer less covers on one album, but I guess some Van Halen is better than no Van Halen.
