David Cassidy Was A Real Musician

This one year anniversary of David Cassidy’s passing brought back an oral history moment, one that most people don’t know about.

David was cast for the (future) hit show “The Partridge Family” because TV musical groups were going strong.  However, the producers of the show did not know he could sing and play guitar. They cast him and he was supposed to lip sync someone else who would be recorded in a studio and fake playing the guitar.

David, who is the son of a well-known TV personality Jack Cassidy, tried several times to tell them that he wanted to perform the songs himself. Finally, they stopped and listened. Boy were they excited. David recorded several hit songs and went on to play Las Vegas and many many concerts.

He became a star in his own right and the TV show was the first to showcase him.
