Just as the star named for David Cassidy by his fans shines for eternity, the songs of this Partridge will always ring out.
David Cassidy is best known for his teen idol music career and his years playing “Keith Partridge” on the hit television show “The Partridge Family.” With his songs like “I think I love You” and “I Can Feel Your Heartbeat,” David Cassidy was the ultimate heartthrob for many young fans throughout the early 1970s.
Born David Bruce Cassidy on April 12, 1950 in Manhattan, New York, David’s father was of half Irish and half German ancestry. His mother was of mainly Colonial American (English) descent, with a smaller amount of Irish and Swiss-German roots.

At his peak, Cassidy was the world's highest paid live entertainer and his official fan club was the largest in pop history – exceeding Elvis and The Beatles.
In 1994, he wrote a book about his years being “Keith Partridge” and performed updated songs from “The Partridge Family” years.
