    Secrets should make this 1984 album scenario. It is one the band’s most underrated songs. Not to mention the vocals and lyrics are really cool.

    Impossible to guess, but for some reason I feel like The Full Bug and Hang 'Em High would still remain unrecorded if they didn't make the Diver Down album. They were just perfect for that particular time, and by the time 1984 came around, VH music changed enough to move past those two.

    There are many days where Diver Down is my favorite album, so I'm glad it made the cut!

    Agree with you on Big Bad Bill. Showed some real range with that one. If DD hadn’t happened, pretty sure BBB would’ve been on 1984. No way the brothers weren’t having Jan on a record.

    Happy Trails to end the 1984 album. Would’ve fit with what happened to the band.

    Hummmm, I don't know.

    By the time the band was recording Fair Warning, there were tension between EVH and Ted Templeman/DLR.
