David Cassidy: His life in photos

On Tuesday, Nov. 21, singer, songwriter, actor, and all-around entertainer David Cassidy passed away at age 67 after suffering multiple organ failure. While he was best known as one of the most popular teen idols of all time thanks to his role as Keith Partridge on the ’70s musical sitcom The Partridge Family, Cassidy enjoyed a wide-ranging, decade-straddling career that included music, Broadway, Vegas, film, and roles on comedic, dramatic, and reality television. Here we look back at the pop culture icon’s legacy.
