Never heard of him. That's awful young. I suppose it is the usual story of drugs, alcohol and all the rest of the celebrity lifestyle. I'm sorry for his family.

I watched the Partridge Family TV show during its four-season run back in the early seventies, but haven't followed David Cassidy since then. 67 years old. Could be drugs. Could just be age.

I watched the Partridge Family TV show

Never watched anything in those days. Too busy raising boys and livestock. :)

Sounds like what my SHW is currently up to.  From time to time I'll mention to her, "Did you see the news story about...."  She will look up at me while simultaneously cooking dinner, checking schoolwork and taking the dog out and mutter, "news?"

I honestly don't know where she will direct all her energy once the kids are out of the house.  Who knows, perhaps by then grandkids will be here!
