David Cassidy of ‘Partridge Family,’ RIP


Singer, actor, Partridge Family star and ’70s teen heartthrob, David Cassidy has died, reports TMZ. He had been admitted to a Florida hospital last week in critical condition, suffered organ failure, and was put on life support Monday. He was 67.

Cassidy was best known for his role as Keith Partridge on early-’70s hit series The Partridge Family. The fictional band of siblings (and mom Shirley Jones who was Cassidy’s real-life stepmother) had real hits, including #1 smash “I Think I Love You,” “Doesn’t Somebody Want to Be Wanted,” and “I Woke Up in Love This Morning.” Cassidy also had a string of solo hits, including “Cherish” and “How Can I Be Sure?” though he was even more popular in the UK. He made a comeback in the ’80s thanks to a starring role on Broadway’s Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat. He struggled with addiction for most of his life and in February of this year, Cassidy revealed he was suffering from non-alzheimer’s dementia.

Rest in peace, David. The music lives on.
