This news just broke my heart like you guys don’t even know. I wasn’t a 70′s kid nor teen. In the late 90s, I was about 12 years of age, I saw the first episode of The Partridge Family because they were playing the show reruns. Now, let me tell you…once I saw David Cassidy…I feel in love right then and there. I would sing the theme song to the show, sing his songs…especially Cherish and I think I Love you, watch Behind the Music, and…yeah.
I am heartbroken that he passed away today and he was one THE stars back in the 70s. To my very young generation, from kids to adults in their early 20s, it is very important to know musicians from the past because they are the ones that set the blueprint for these artists that you are listening to this day. If you love music, TRULY love music, then know your history. Never get stuck only on the here and now music. Incorporate music you are listening to now with music from the past. It’s okay to love one genre of music, but give other genres of music a chance as well. Hell, my favorite genre of music is ambient music and my favorite musicians are Michael Jackson and Selena Quintanilla Perez, BUT I learn to appreciate other genre of music and musicians and love them as well.
This man has set the blueprint for artist like Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, and others. Get to know David Cassidy, his music, and his story.
RIP David Cassidy! You will be truly missed. Gone but never ever forgotten.
