Tawny Kitaen Reveals The Move She Can Still Do From Those Whitesnake Music Videos (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - almost 3 years
In the mid-1980s, when music videos reigned supreme, there was one particular video girl whose work stood out among the vast sea of guitar solos and big-hair tosses -- and remains just as memorable decades later. Tawny Kitaen was a twenty-something actress at the time, and had just earned her big break in the 1984 film "Bachelor Party," opposite Tom Hanks. Following the film's release, Kitaen met David Coverdale, the lead singer of Whitesnake, a band whose music videos would catapult her to lasting stardom. The two became romantically involved, and Kitaen soon appeared in several of Whitesnake's music videos, including those for "Here I Go Again," "Is This Love" and "Still of the Night." "When we shot the first couple of videos, we were in a serious relationship," Kitaen says of Coverdale, whom she later married. "Here I Go Again" may be Kitaen's most famous music video appearance. In it, she danced, slithered and did the splits across the hood of two luxury cars, solidifying...

Michael Sigman: Carol Miller On 40 Years In Rock And Her Cancer Battle: 'Face The Truth With A Sense Of Humor'
Huffington Post - over 5 years
"I thought Steven Tyler was dead." That opening line from veteran New York DJ Carol Miller's new memoir "Up All Night, My Life and Times in Rock Radio" suggests yet another saga of sex, drugs and rock & roll in the music business. But Miller's encounter with Tyler, in which she sleeps near but not with him, foreshadows a far more compelling story: a story of thriving for 40 years in an industry with a half-life that's often measured in months, a story of a woman's heroic struggle with two kinds of cancer. For total-immersion rock & roll debauchery, you'll want "Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?" Tyler's hilarious 2011 memoir, which overflows with the Aerosmith frontman's picaresque postcards from the edge. Don't get me wrong. There's plenty of excitement, musical and extra-musical, in "Up All Night." Miller's professional journey -- from early '70s progressive radio at Philadelphia's WMMR to AOR (Album Oriented Rock)/Classic Rock at NY's powerhouse WPLJ...
