    I was thumbing through an old guitar magazine, and there were various pictures from the VH II recordings. One picture had what looks to be like a Les Paul copy w/ a Kramer-like headstock. The guitar was laying face down on something. On the back of the guitar is a sticker of what would become the DD cover.

    Nothing earth-shattering here...just interesting where album cover ideas come from (haha).

    BTW, the DD cover...is that the nautical symbol for when a diver is down?? Just curious, since I am and have always been a resident of the landlocked states.

    yeah,olen and billy , you are both right, it's the flag S.C.U.B.A. divers use when they dive so boats know that they are under water. you can see it on cars(in the form of liscense plates, stickers), boat shops, anywhere there are boating supplies,etc. you can also see it on tv shows when you see coast guard boats and helicopters, if anyone cares
