David Cassidy – a life in pictures
At his peak he received 25, letters a week and his fan club was said to be the biggest in the music business. Cassidy, who has died aged 67 after several years of living with dementia, was a new kind of teen idol. Recognising that his run at the top would be brief, the TV studio ensured that every possible cash stream was exploited: hour filming days were followed by night-time recording sessions — both for his own albums and those released under the Partridge Family name — and weekends were spent playing concerts. If there was a surface where his photo could appear, it did — on everything from lunchboxes and plastic guitars to pillowcases and dresses. If you have memories and tributes to David Cassidy you can share them via our form here. There's also an option to upload any photos you may have — perhaps of a meeting with Cassidy or some memorabilia. Most teen idols eventually find fame a grind, but Cassidy resented it almost from the start. His aim was to be recognised as a serious actor, but that was scuppered by playing cute Keith, the eldest of five singing siblings. He often reminisced bitterly about the turn his career had taken: just before The Partridge Family, he had believed he was on his way to professional acclaim after winning one-off roles in a handful of US TV dramas.

Even though we live together, we barely see each other - when he is working nights, we go several days without seeing each other at all he is usually still at work when I head out in the morning, and gone by the time I get back in the evenings. Honestly, you are probably the only person who she has ever known to outwardly label themselves an atheist. Cuddling is not demanding. This isn't what I expected.
