Saw this late last night right at bedtime and didn’t want to post, as it was unverified, but it appears that Tawny Kitaen has passed away. 😔

RIP Tawny

Any info? I mean wasnt she famous for banging rockstars and acting in a couple b-movies??? I always confused her with Tawny Roberts as a kid, I spanked to both equally, but couldnt tell you what Kitaen was known for, outside of her reality show shit, and banging rock stars, of course the Whitesnake vid, wasnt she in a few more rock vids?

"Bachelor Party" will always be one of my favourite movies of all time.

From TMZ.com:

Tawny Kitaen, the actress who starred in "Bachelor Party" and whose personal life was filled with radical ups and downs, has died ... TMZ has learned.

Kitaen died in Newport Beach Friday. The coroner has yet to determine cause of death.

Kitaen, whose credits include 'The Perils of Gwendoline' and "After Midnight," was a precocious child who got the showbiz bug at 14, when she saw Peter Frampton at Balboa Stadium in San Diego. She got a backstage pass and saw the All-Access VIP treatment Peter's GF, Penny, received, and that was it. She was hooked.

Tawny started out on a game show back in 1976 -- "To Tell the Truth." She migrated into movies and achieved some success with her roles, especially "Bachelor Party."

And, Tawny famously was featured in some music videos, notably Whitesnake's "Is This Love," and "Here I Go Again."

Kitaen dated Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby while she was still in high school and even followed his band to L.A. in the late '70s. She was featured on the album cover of the band's album "Out of the Cellar" and their debut EP "Ratt."

Tawny's personal life was rocky. She married Whitesnake's lead singer, David Coverdale, back in 1989, but the marriage only lasted 2 years.  She went on to marry baseball star Chuck Finley -- with whom she had 2 daughters -- and the end of that relationship proved disastrous.  Finley claimed she repeatedly kicked him in the face with her high heels and she was charged with domestic violence. Those charges were later dismissed. He filed for divorce 3 days later.

 

She also had substance abuse issues and was arrested for drug possession and DUI ... which was well-chronicled in the media.

Tawny was 59.

RIP

Besides the mentioned and Bachelor Party was assuredly her biggest role, but speaking of flogging, it was The Perils of Gwendoline that was a regular watch for me and certainly showcased Tawny's "assets".

I think her longest relationship was with a professional baseball player, but?

RIP you ginger princess.

Ok the did that have mickey rourke in it?? or am I thinking of something else? and thats right she was with that Pitcher for the Angels, the one that is a douche bag, and I remember when they were playing the Cubs in Chi-Town, when he was coming in from the bullpen, you know that long walk when the bullpens out in right or left field? but as he was walking to the mound, the Cubs audio dude, out of nowhere blasted Here I Go Again, to try and get into dudes head and fuck him, and it was visually doing the job, he was not fucking impressed in the least, he was actually full blown fucking livid, and either he didnt give a fuck or he was so mad, he could not help how bad it was showing, he did not think that shit was even in the ball park of funny, and the audience stoked it on, I think those in the audience who actually picked up on the joke, were so overly amused they could not stop laughing and singing along, I just remember thinking, whoever came up with doing that is one of my hero's, they are pure geniuses, im gonna ao look around to see if by chance there is tape out there on it, I know it was live, cause I was suffering through the actual game.

    • Great song! For me, best song they've done. Could have been on One Desire's first album.
    • New song 'The Rain', not from the latest effort 'A New Horizon'.    
    • Haha. Awesome. Fuck me, you sure know how to lift me up. Only thing that could make these two even better than they are is if I looked outside my window and saw you singing them to me personally. 
    • New video for 'A New Horizon'.    
    • You know that feeling when you're sitting around listening to your 1987 playlist and a song you've heard plenty of times comes on the speakers and as it plays you think to yourself, holy fuck, seriously, how good is this song?! I think we can safely call it under-rated as the band only have the - wait, what the fuck? As I was just double checking that they only had the one EP, I notice this actually got re-released with 6/7 more tracks last year?  https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=9095&CDName=II Did I know about this? I know my memory is terrible, but I don't think so. I must find immediately.  But yeah, how good is this song?  
    • New video for 'Into The Fire'. From Frontiers: Swedish rockers degreed have announced the upcoming release of their sixth studio album, “Are You Ready”.  ”I can’t believe we’re about to release our sixth studio album. I am so proud of this band and I am very humbled that we are still around. And what could fit more perfectly than to release this album with Frontiers? The leading company when it comes to melodic rock and hard rock! Our upcoming album will be just that...a more straightforward hard rock album with great melodies. Our ”old” fans will not be disappointed, and I’m sure that we will gain a lot of new ones as well with this one,” says vocalist Robin Eriksson. This new record indeed shows a more straightforward and focused direction for the band’s sound. Still extremely melodic and catchy, and not without some really outstanding instrumental parts, Degreed is back stronger than ever and with a great management and record label supporting them, they’ve never been more ready to take on the world. degreed have been releasing critically acclaimed music since the start of their career with their first album “Life, Love, Loss” in 2010. Over the course of their next four studio albums, the band has gone from strength to strength with every release, touring and gaining fans all over the world and they have no plans on stopping now. Degreed's sound mixes the classic melodic and hard rock sounds with more contemporary influences offering the fans a very personal, fresh and exciting mix of great rock music. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the band wasn’t able to tour on the heels of the release of their latest album, "Lost Generation" (2019), they set out to begin work on their sixth studio album, "Are You Ready". The band released the song “The World We Knew," their musical summation of the year 2020 (the song became ”Track of the Week” at Classic Rock Magazine’s website a week after its release) and then in 2021, work began in earnest on what would ultimately become "Are You Ready". Tracklisting: 1.    Into The Fire 2.    Higher 3.    Feed The Lie 4.    Radio 5.    Are You Ready 6.    Burning  7.    Falling Down 8.    Lost In Paradise 9.    Turn Back 10.    We Will Win 11.    Desire    
    • Looks like I'm the only one who likes Tyler more than Coverdale. Not that I dislike Coverdale, I love the guy's voice, but if I had to choose just one to listen to, I'd go with Tyler, especially his 70's output. I kinda like the sleazy sound just a little bit more than the bluesy sounding voices.
    • It's like how I apologise to the mechanics every time my car breaks down.
    • I reckon it's worth asking the question. 
    • I come in genuine curiosity, but this hospital argument... I'd like clarification. So originally we couldn't do anything because covid was going to kill everyone on earth. Then there was a vaccine and we couldn't do anything until we all got vaccinated. Now we're all vaccinated and the sole reason left that we're still living piece of shit lives is because we don't want to overload the hospitals? Is this the correct read on it? So, if this is true, we've resigned to the truth that is this is how the rest of our lives look? Masks, QR codes, crowd capacities, covid tests if we want to travel interstate, let alone international travel - then we need 87 tests and quarantine every time a new variant pops up, which will be fortnightly, or at the latest, monthly. This is it now, is it? Because if it's not, how does the end of it look? When will it be okay to live again without fear of clogging up the hospitals?  I can only speak for Australia on this part of it, but all we've ever heard about is stopping the strain on the hospitals, but has anyone ever seen it? Would anyone even consider overloaded hospitals as an issue if the media hadn't told us it was an issue? I ask as anyone I know who works in healthcare, and to an extent, even myself, as a medical courier who has worked every single day of the last two years... no one I know, or I, have ever seen any single even remote sign of all this strain on our health system. So, like the rest of this pandemic, is it just another media beat up? All they've done for two years straight is belt fear into us, so is it unreasonable to think this is just another branch from that tree? I'm just sick of daily excuses why our lives are still fucking horrible. Anytime the mere suggestion of return to a "normal" life gets brought up, there's a whole list of media-inspired reasons why we have to continue living in misery.  Anyway, I think that was about it. I'm just in eternal wonder about why we all had to get vaccinated when it hasn't actually changed anything about how covid is viewed and feared. Covid is viewed exactly as it was two years ago. It still governs every aspect of how we live, so all these promises about getting vaccinated so we could go back to a normal life were obviously all bullshit.  I was thinking about Australia's trajectory this morning. So if we keep up this pathetic excuse for an existence - the daily covid rate is around 1300 daily cases - let's call it 1500 daily cases if and when the other states open up. So if we continue on this trajectory, living in paralysed fear of the virus, acting like every case of covid is terminal cancer, we should get past this covid thing in about 15,333 days. So around 42 years. That, of course doesn't allow for population growth, but let's assume the cases go up with population growth proportionately.  So that's the outlook in Australia. In 42 years, we might finally move on from covid, based on our current trajectory? What a future to look forward to! Oh, actually, that doesn't include cases prior to today, so maybe we can get out of this thing in closer to 41 years? Life just got a whole lot brighter right then.
