Yeah...I hate Van Hagar too, but by "Diver Down" they were phoning it in. How could they hope to follow up "Fair Warning"? They obviously weren't trying after that one...

Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin for me...

and of course early (just early) AC/DC.

It's good to see a non- New Wave thread once a while.... good idea, brother.
