On this day In 1989, Whitesnake frontman David Coverdale married actress and model Tawny Kitaen. Kitaen famously starred in several of the British hard rockers’ music videos, including an iconic appearance in 1987’s “Here I Go Again,” where she danced and cartwheeled atop two Jaguar XJs. The couple divorced in 1991.

The ’82 music video features the band performing the song onstage. The music video for the ’87 re-recorded version was directed by Marty Callner. The video includes, besides the band’s stage performance, appearances by model Julie E. “Tawny” Kitaen, who was married to Whitesnake’s David Coverdale from 1989 to 1991. Her notable sex-appeal was immediately recognized; she filmed memorable unchoreographed scenes dressed “in a white negligee, writhing and cartwheeling across the hoods of two Jaguars XJ” which belonged to Coverdale (white) and Callner (black). Coverdale recalls that he brought choreographer Paula Abdul to the set to show Tawny some moves, but Abdul exclaimed that Tawny was already so accomplished regarding this video that she couldn’t “show her anything”. Coverdale’s iconic white Jaguar once again appeared in the music video for the single “Shut Up & Kiss Me” from the 2019 studio album Flesh & Blood.
