LAS VEGAS, NV - JUNE 04: Singer David Coverdale of Whitesnake performs at The Joint inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino as the band tours in support of "The Purple Album" on June 4, 2015 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

If Whitesnake releases a new video for “Here I Go Again,” and Tawny Kitaen isn’t in it, does it exist?

Well…yes, it does still exist, because they just released it as part of the promotion for the 30th anniversary reissue of Whitesnake, but upon watching it, even the biggest Whitesnake fan would admit that something is certainly missing.

The new video, which features a demo/rehearsal version of the iconic track, is comprised of behind-the-scenes footage of the band on tour.  It’s not bad, but it just doesn’t feel right.

Judge for yourself.

(Honestly, the only new video we should have received is one where we can’t see a price tag on the bottom of Kitaen’s shoe.  It’s around the 3:48 mark in the original video, and this writer hasn’t been able to un-see it FOR YEARS!)
