Weekend Update – David Cassidy, Zimbabwe, Egypt

I don’t know, there’s something about the death of David Cassidy that is curious, haunting and thought-provoking. If you are one of those people who were born between 1955 and 1965, you grew up in an era where there were one maybe two TVs in the house. If you lived in a relatively big city, you had 3 to 5 television channels. Everybody watched the same shows. At night, from approximately seven to approximately nine PM everybody watched TV. One of the most popular TV shows was the Partridge family starring Shirley Jones and David Cassidy. The whole premise of the show was somewhat contrived and crazy. This was a family, without a father, that traveled the country in a school bus making a living as a singing group. David Cassidy, because of his looks and demeanor, was the “perfect” teen idol. I’m sure that I could write volumes just on the TV show itself. The death of David Cassidy for thousands of people is somewhat sad. He really was a heartthrob at the time. He had one megahit called, I Think I Love You which reached number one on the Billboard charts. He was never able to replicate that success. From my standpoint, this was one of the worst examples of soulless, bubblegum music ever produced. It goes into the same category as The Hustle, Rock the Boat and Muskrat Love. David always struggled with his success. He seemed to have mental health issues all of his life. RIP, David Cassidy.
