David Cassidy

Person  Male  Born 12/4/1950  Died 21/11/2017

Actor, singer and songwriter. Born in New York, son of actor Jack Cassidy. He became a teenage idol playing Keith Partridge in the television musical show 'The Partridge Family'. He found it difficult to cope with the pressures that fame brought, and was particularly affected by the death of a fan who died following a crush at the White City Stadium where he was performing in 1974. He gave up touring, and focused on stage work, appearing in 'Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat' and 'Blood Brothers' on Broadway, and also in the latter in London. In his later years he admitted to having an alcohol problem, which may have contributed to his death.

Other memorials to Cassidy in London: a bench in Hammersmith Park and a seat in the auditorium of the Royal Festival Hall.
