    That was awesome. Really loved the delay on Dave's vocals.

    I've said it before but I'll say it again, Secrets is grossly underrated. No one ever talks about Secrets but I think it's a killer song with one of Ed's best solos.

    I've always loved the line, "the question is not does love exist but when she leaves where she goes."
    VH with Dave ('78-'84) - The best years....the "real" VH.
    VH with Sam ('86-'96) - Incredible era....."We have renamed this town 'New Halen!'.
    VH with Gary ('98) - Fucking disaster. WTF was that??
    VH with Wolf/Dave ('12-'15) - Amazing comeback. Smokin' album and tours.

    I remember hearing Cathedral way back in '82 when I bought Diver Down and thought "Wow, Eddie is playing a church organ! How cool is that?!" lol
    Then I saw him do it on guitar in LWAN and thought "WOW, he plays that shit on GUITAR!?!" ALWAYS was and will be one of my favorite pieces of music. Pure musical genius. And agreed, Secrets a criminally underratted. Could've easily been a huge hit single. I HATE when people put down the DD album. SOOOO many great songs on that release. So much flavor, and style. And Alex's snare NEVER sounded better. Even all of the covers they did killed the original version. For the longest time I really thought Dancing in the Street was an original VH tune. lol Thanks for the vid post btw. Can you really ever get enough of this stuff. Awesome.
