Tawny Kitaen no longer appearing at Drama Queen’s debut concert due to “unforeseen circumstances”
A couple of days after receiving a request from the aptly named Drama Queen to promote their debut concert / CD release party that will feature Tawny Kitean making a celebrity guest appearance at the Mustangs Bar and Grill in South Beloit, Illinois, USA on August 25, 2018, Sleaze Roxx received the following message in part from Drama Queen drummer Rob Pace:
“Due to unforeseen circumstances Tawny Kitaen will not be able to make our Aug. 25th show.”
No further reasons were provided in that regard.
Kitaen is best known in hard rock / heavy metal circles for appearing in videos for some of Whitesnake‘s biggest hits including “Here I Go Again,” “Is This Love” and “Still Of The Night.”
Wikipedia states the following about Kitaen‘s personal life (with slight edits):
“Kitaen dated Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby during and after high school. She followed the bands to Los Angeles in the late 1970s to pursue a career of her own. Kitaen married Whitesnake singer David Coverdale in 1989. Coverdale and Kitaen divorced in 1991.
Kitaen was married to baseball player Chuck Finley from 1997 to 2002. In 2002, she was charged with domestic violence for an incident involving Finley, whom she had kicked in the face repeatedly with high-heeled shoes. Three days later, Finley filed for divorce. After a plea bargain, Kitaen agreed to “enter a spousal battery counseling program and avoid contact with Finley.” The couple had been married for five years and had two daughters together.
In November 2006, prosecutors charged Kitaen with possessing 15 grams of cocaine in her San Juan Capistrano home in Orange County. The authorities said her two children were home at the time and Kitaen had given deputies permission for the search. In December 2006, she entered a six-month rehabilitation program in exchange for the dismissal of a felony drug possession charge.
On September 26, 2009, Kitaen was arrested for driving under the influence in Newport Beach, California. The following July, she pleaded no contest to misdemeanor DWI and was sentenced to a couple days in jail, ordered to attend a first offender alcohol program and required to perform 64 hours of community service.”
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Drama Queen‘s self-titled debut album: “I started listening to Drama Queen‘s self-titled album while driving my car and honestly, I couldn’t make it through the entire album. The songs were quite polished with that nice guitar tone from Vogt but for the most part were so slow paced and by the time that the chorus would come, it seemed that the songs had almost regressed, rather than progressed to that next level. I listened to the record a few more times before putting it aside hoping that I might warm up to it a little more later on. As I revisited the album tonight, it sounds a lot better than my initial first few listens but it still feels like something is missing for most of the tracks. There are definitely a lot of ’80s elements on the record with “We’re On Fire” sounding like Ratt, “Drama Queen” reminding me of the Scorpions, the opening bluesy guitar notes reminiscent of Cinderella and the opening guitar riff on “Stop Me From Crying” sounding like Bryan Adams.”
