David Cassidy sitting on the front hood of his ’72 Corvette in 1975

David Cassidy was an actor, singer, songwriter, and guitarist, best known for his role on The Partridge Family. He played Keith Partridge, the son of Shirley Partridge (who just so happened to be played by his actual stepmother Shirley Jones). The musical sitcom led to Cassidy becoming one of pop culture’s biggest teen idols and pop singers of the 1970s.

His later career was also pretty evenly focused on both acting and music. In the ’80s, he did some musical theater work, provided backup vocals for George Michael, and he co-wrote the song “Prayin’ 4 a Miracle” with John Wetton and Sue Shifrin. The ’90s and ’00s brought more of the same, and in the 2010s he took on reality TV and appeared on Celebrity Apprentice.

After suffering from multiple medical conditions, he died at the age of 67 from liver failure on November 21, 2017. h/t >
