Actor, singer, musician and author David Cassidy has died. Last week, he was admitted in to a Florida hospital due to kidney and liver failure. He was as 67.

In Feb. 2017, Cassidy appeared in an episode of Dr. Philย where he had admitted to having been diagnosed with dementia, which his mother had died from.

Cassidy was best known as having portrayed Keith Partridge in the comedy series The Partridge Family, which ran on ABC-TV from 1970 to 1974. He became a teen idol, whose face was plastered all over female teenagers’ bedroom walls during this time. When he wasn’t starring as Keith, he spent most of his ‘free’ time recording albums and performing in concerts all over the world. Before he got the The Partridge Family role, he had appeared in episodes of Adam-12, Bonanza and The Love Boat.

Cassidy was a great singer and musician. Sadly, I never got the opportunity to see him perform live. I know he’s putting on one heck of a great show in Heaven. Rest In Peace, David.ย ๐ŸŽญ๐Ÿ“บ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽต

This Day In History: David ‘Davy’ Jones Dies

It has been exactly four years since actor, musician, singer, songwriter, author and one-fourth member of the 1960’s band The Monkees, Davy Jones, died of a severe heart attack at the age of 66.

I was fortunate to have met Davy briefly just seven months before he died. I’ve met a few celebrities in my life and have never been starstruck because I know they’re human, just like you and me. The ones who I’ve met have been nice and friendly. However, meeting The Monkees, especially Davy, was different. Maybe it was because The Monkees and their music were a part of my childhood (I wasn’t born when the television series The Monkees first aired, but I watched reruns of it every summer when it aired in syndication) and because he was my first (celeb) crush.

From the music he performed with The Monkees and in his solo career, to portraying himself on an episode of The Brady Bunch, he brought a lot of smiles and happiness to many people, including myself. ๐Ÿ˜ย  ๐ŸŽคย  ๐ŸŽถย  ๐ŸŽตย  ๐Ÿ™‚
