Another Hollywood icon has gone on to the other side after a battle with drugs that lead to health problems, relationship problems, career problems, and ultimately a fall from grace in the eyes of many. His legacy will live on.
Actor and singer David Cassidy, who rose to fame as Keith Partridge in the classic ’70s series The Partridge Family, has died of organ failure. He was 67 years old.
According to TMZ, Cassidy was first admitted to a hospital in Florida on Nov. 15. He died on Tuesday surrounded by his family, his publicist confirmed to Variety. Earlier this year, he revealed he was battling dementia, and announced he would stop touring to concentrate on his health.
Cassidy starred alongside real-life stepmother Shirley Jones on The Partridge Family, which ran for a total of 96 episodes over four seasons between 1970 and 1974. The TV-family band put out 10 platinum-selling albums during the series’ run. Among their biggest hits was “I Think I Love You,” which climbed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart in November 1970.
