David Cassidy: Gone Too Soon

David Cassidy, Teen Heartthrob
I still can't believe David Cassidy is no longer with us, dead at the age of sixty-seven. When I was seven and eight years old, during the heyday of The Partridge Family television series, I had posters of him from Teen Magazine plastered on my closet door. 

Of course, I'm sure I wasn't the only one. David Cassidy had quite a teen (and grade school) following back in the day.

Wikipedia says, "Though he wanted to become a respected rock musician along the lines of Mick Jagger, his channel to stardom launched him into the ranks of teen idol, a brand he loathed until much later in life, when he managed to come to terms with his bubblegum pop beginnings." 

I stopped following his career many decades ago, but it was still a shock to hear of his death. 

Were you a David Cassidy fan? Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

I've only read the articles about his death, but beyond that he was just another name to me.

I didn't have the posters but I always went for the Teen Beat magazine or the ones with the lyrics to the pop songs. With his picture on the cover I remember begging for a little more allowance. LOL
