    David Cassidy

    Dead At 67:

    http://tvline.com/2017/11/21/david-c...amily-dead-67/

    Unsure whether to place it here or in the actor section. I'll leave it to the moderator to decide.

    There's already a thread about him in Entertainers. I've asked the mods to move it to the appropriate section. You may want to ask to have this thread merged with it.

    Being as he has now died, this is the appropriate place for the thread.

    I thought there couldn't be a new death thread for serial singers who already had a thread.

    RIP, David.

    So I guess maybe this belongs in the Police Blotter thread too?

    I think he squeezed it in to a good day as far as I can tell. I haven't heard of any other celebrity deaths today. Not on par with what he was at one time. It's a bummer, but he did not want to put the bottle down. He got enough warnings.

    This is bothersome in a couple of different ways. To me he has always been that blue-eyed young man pictured above. Also, dementia of all things.

    It's odd what we associate people with. Whenever he is mentioned I can't help think of Puka Shell necklaces and how those things were so popular in Jr High.

    While too short he most certainly lived an interesting life. One can't complain about that.

    My first love. He was my first boyfriend. (of course he was unaware but I was only 6) I was gonna marry him when I grew up! This one hurt my heart. I hope he found the peace he was looking for.

    I remember all the girls I knew had his poster on their walls, and all the issues of 16 and Tiger Beat when he was on the cover. RIP David.

    I hope he didn't really suffer at the end-- if he was doomed to die with dementia or "wet brain" or some diabolical combination, perhaps this was the way it had to be. Still, what a waste of what were to be his last few years.

    David hurt his back in Las Vegas when he fell through a door trap. He was on pain med. also no polar. At least he did not take anyone out with him with his DUIs. I believe he wanted to go.

    Does anyone remember the mystery paperbacks that featured The Partridge Family. I read two or three of them my aunt gave me. Really cheesy. I mean Keith and the gang solving mysteries. LOL.

    I don't remember having a crush on DC. Back then I wasn't into pretty boys.

    I always thought "I Think I Love You" was overplayed until the average person got sick of it. On the other hand, "I'll Meet You Half Way" was excellent and I couldn't stop listening to it. A masterpiece!

    It does but I think these were before the Hardy Boys. If you go to Amazon and do a search in books for The Partridge Family, they'll show up.

    Although I did watch the show and thought David was cute, but never had a crush on him either (I was about 10 or 11), but just a few years later, I sure was in love with Andy Gibb (and still am)!!!LOL!!!

    He may not have got the life he wanted but I still have to think he did OK.

    Addiction rears it's head in many forms. If not alcohol abuse perhaps another addiction.

    I agree with this because normally addicts are self medicating. He had his demons.

    I recently bought one of those old paperbacks-- it was about the Partridges heading for a music festival and mistakenly stuck in an empty old mansion with a sinister band of Manson-esque musicians and a pyromaniac mental hospital escapee.

    Surprisingly hardcore stuff ("Laurie" even seems in danger of rape and murder for a while) which is miraculously solved by page 150 or so, and you would never know how whack it gets from the breezy blurbs on the cover. (This would NEVER have been a REAL PF episode for sure!) The only reason I got it was because it had a mention of DARK SHADOWS (which was still running at the time and had its own set of paperback novels.)

    About ten years ago I actually passed the Partridge Family bus on I-55 between Jackson MS and Memphis - or at least one that looked just like it right down to having "The Partridge Family" painted on it.

    That whole bus color scheme is going to make a comeback any day now.
    Yep - big, big comeback; any day now.
