Singer David Cassidy announced his retirement Monday after a disastrous performance in Agoura Hills, California. Cassidy slurred, stumbled off-stage and forgot some of the words to his songs. Accordingly, he has been diagnosed with dementia, a form of mental illness, causing memory loss.
David Cassidy is best known for his starring role in “The Partridge Family” (1969 – 1974.) Video posted by partridgefamily4ever on YouTube.
During the mid 1970’s, he temporarily retired after a girl was crushed to death, due to a mob of stampeding fans. He resumed singing in the 90’s to mixed success, along with some DUI-drug related arrests.
David Cassidy’s father, Jack Cassidy was also an actor and singer, performing on stage and screen. One of his best roles (shortly before his death) was in “The Eiger Sanction” (1974), as a homosexual assassin.
With co-star Clint Eastwood.
Real life tragedy struck when he was found burned to death – the result of falling asleep while smoking.
