David Cassidy, best known for his role on The Partridge Family, has died. He was 67. The actor and musician entered a Fort Lauderdale, Florida, hospital for liver and kidney failure last week.
Earlier in the year, Cassidy revealed that he was battling the early stages of dementia, an illness both his mother and grandfather suffered from. Cassidy’s admission came after video emerged of the singer struggling to remember lyrics and stumbling around the stage during a California concert.
“David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long,” a statement from his family said. “Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years.”
Cassidy became a teenage heartthrob with his role as Keith Partridge in the ‘70s sitcom The Partridge Family. He would go on to have a career as a musician with hit songs such as “I Think I Love You,” and “Daydreamer.”

Vince Gill and Deacon Frey, son of the late Glen Frey, became members this year. And in a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Don Henley spoke of Deacon and said,"It's extraordinary what that young man has done. I saw him sing "Peaceful Easy Feeling" at his father's memorial service. As difficult as that might have been, he was so brave and composed. I'm sure, on the inside, he was churning. After a few months went by, I thought, "Why not see if he would like to be in the band?"
Some tickets for next year's shows will go on sale as early as December 1, others will be announced soon.
