I am of the age where I grew up watching The Partridge Family ( a Family Band) on my family’s RCA console TV.
The main star of The Partridge Family was David Cassidy who played Keith Partridge, a teenage idol and heartthrob, both on the TV show and in real life.
As a teenager I knew David Cassidy was popular, but until just the other night, I had no idea just how popular he was worldwide.
David Cassidy performed in front of six (count em – SIX) sold out shows at the famed Wembley Stadium in 1973, in one weekend, a feat which has never been matched.
In a three-year span from 1971-1973, David Cassidy appeared on the cover of Tiger Beat Magazine thirty-four (count em – 34) times.
A charismatic, talented, gifted singer and songwriter, Cassidy worked tirelessly for years, a trait he picked up from his Broadway, good looking, charismatic, talented and gifted singer father, Jack Cassidy.
My interest in David Cassidy reached a fever pitch this week as the documentary “David Cassidy: The Last Session” was aired on A&E TV this week.
