My sisters and their friends drove us crazy over David Cassidy, collecting Partridge Family cards ( like baseball cards) with lyrics, posters, music etc..
Actually thought he was younger, than 67.

I remember watching the initial reruns of The Partridge Family when I was a toddler back in 1975
or 1976. Had a bunch of the albums as well, literally purchased for a handful of nickels at garage
sales a few years after that! His daughter, Katie Cassidy, is a regular on the CW TV series Arrow.

One of my earliest TV memories is watching reruns of The Partridge Family in the mid-70s. I found Tracy Partridge to be a huge inspiration -- she proved that anyone can be a music star, even if all they can do is bang a tambourine. You don't even need to bang it in time with the music. Just bang it. Sadly, I soon came to realize that I'd missed the heyday of tambourine-playing music stars. So, I shifted attention to Keith, because if you're going to have to actually develop a musical talent, you might as well be the star of the group.

Many years later, in the early 90s, Muchmusic started airing reruns of The Partridge Family. Needless to say, my musical tastes had shifted tremendously over the years, so I was watching for nostalgia rather than the music, but I was surprised every now and then to find some pretty solid material dotted throughout the series. Most of it was pretty tame, but it was good tame, like "Point Me in the Direction of Albuquerque." Occasionally there would be a mild edge, like with "I Can Feel Your Heartbeat."

I'm not sure how Cassidy felt about being forever linked to a show he was on when he was in his early 20s. I remember he did a few talk shows in the 90s and he seemed to embrace his past, and for his sake, I hope he continued to do so.
