Every generation has its teen idols.
Cassidy, a second generation performer, was the son of the late Jack Cassidy and the stepson/co-star of Shirley Jones. At his heyday, he was known all over the world as both a musician and star of The Partridge Family.
Though he had a few personal and professional missteps after The Partridge Family was cancelled, he will be forever be remembered by a certain generation as their teen idol.
RIP David Cassidy. Gone but never forgotten.
