A big thank you to all who came out to my shows this weekend.
I had the most fantastic weekend. The three sold out shows were an amazing experience. I love playing live and I wanted to let you know that I’ve got the fire back in my belly.

Kelly Hennessa a local teacher at Centreville High School and her son were in a terrible car accident last year in Virginia.
She was in a coma for two months, her son was in a coma for about a week.
To help Kelly recover while she was in the coma, Kelly’s husband Greg would play his wife’s favorite David Cassidy songs for her, especially “I Think I Love You.” He says he could see a small grin when he did.
It worked, she came out the coma.
Friends and family spread the word and David Cassidy’s managers got word and made her dream come true.
Sunday night, Kelly met David Cassidy before his show in Alexandria, Va.
This is the second time Kelly saw David Cassidy play live at the Birchmere.
There’s a gofundme page that has been set up.
..We spoke recently with a rejuvenated and four-months-sober Cassidy from his home in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., about the old days and the influence of his family, particularly his father, the late actor Jack Cassidy, as well as encounters with John Lennon, David Bowie and Donald Trump.
What can people expect when they come to see a David Cassidy show in 2016?
Very high energy, obviously a lot of my hits. I take people kind of on a musical journey of my life, including a Cole Porter song that my father taught me when I was 3 1/2 years old.
I knew many of the Eagles back in the 70s but strangely not Glenn Frey. Tim Schmidt and I became very good friends back then. I’ve met, in the past, Don Henley in both England and in the US. I sang on their original bass player and singer songwriter Randy Meisner’s first solo album, a great talent as well.
I, like many Americans, view the Eagles as one of the greatest American bands in the last 40 years.
Glenn will be missed by all and I wish his loved ones and friends my deepest sympathy. Glenn, we will miss you and your talent. God bless you.
