Ratt’s 1984 video “Back For More” featured Tawney Kitaen, the high school sweetheart of Ratt guitarist Robbin Crosby, long before she appeared dancing on the hood of a Jaguar for Whitesnake. The outside scenes were filmed primarily on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, CA.   In one scene, Ratt guitarist Warren DeMartini and bassist Juan Croucier pick up two girls at Gardel’s Restaurant on 7963 Melrose Ave. In another scene, guitarist Robbin Crosby and drummer Bobby Blotzer are pulled over by two cops played by Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee. Lee and Sixx frisk Blotzer up against the wall of the building at 8080 Melrose Ave.
