Message from David – May 5, 2017

I’m about to go to Chicago in the next 2 weeks to record in Craig’s state of the art studio to begin doing my tribute to my mentor and father. People may respond that it’s just worship of my male role model, especially as he basically abandoned me and my mother. I truly believe he was the most talented man I’ve ever known. Soooooooo, I’m going to go in and pay tribute to him with “Songs my father taught me”.

Teri and Frank are flying in. As you all know, we record Live! Live! Live! It’s the only authentic way! It’s the way I learned and was taught from 19 years of age!! I truly believe this will be my last recording, and it’s been something I’ve been thinking about for many years.

Happy Trails,
DC

      I just figured out why our names go blue. If we put in a website address, they turn your name into a link to the website you typed in. I don’t know how they knew when to ask me again for that information, though. Have a good day.

We have been waiting for this recording for a long time, I’m glad it’s now going to happen. It will be even more special now given the circumstances. Long may it remain as one of your greatest memories.

    Special thanks to Craig, Frank and Teri for making this happen, you are true friends indeed. Look after our man, he is very precious.

    Much love as always

    Dear David

    I’m excited to hear that you’re going to record “Songs My Father Taught Me”. This is something that is obviously very dear to your heart, to pay tribute to your father. I’m sure he’d be very proud of you and what you have achieved in your career, also for the person that you are. I’m saddened to hear that it will probably be your last recording, you are so talented. I hope you are well, and continue to think about and pray for you. Looking forward to your recording, I’m sure you and your friends will enjoy making it. Enjoy Chicago! I want you to know that from the first time I saw you on the Partridge Family and ever since you’ve always had my heart and that will never change. As I approach my 61st birthday on May 27 I think back about how I felt about you when I was 14 and a half and that remains the same.

    Keep well David, and loving you always

    Good to hear from you, David.

    Just me sharing, but I think it would be really great to share some speaking introductions to the songs you’ll be recording. I’ve heard you laugh at the old P. Family song where they asked you to speak like Elvis on a recorded song, but, I have to say, I loved that part!

    Enjoy seeing everyone.

Thanks for doing this for us ♥ Been a fan since I was a small child….I so wish I could meet you still one day. My mother had dementia I pray for you daily that a miracle will happen and they find a cure for you! I am afraid at 53 I am starting to get it I grasp for words and forget things easily.

    DEAREST DAVID ❤
    Im so excited to hear you’re getting back into the studio! I think this will be great therapy for you! The pictures I have seen of you and your father, need no words or captions. He loved you ❤ Sometimes people become so consumed with their own careers and successes, they forget to show us they love us. I had a parent like this. Your father was still young and had much to learn, and was taken too soon, but he loved you ❤ I pray for your health and your continued recovery! Be healthy, be happy, you are so loved by many. Keep up the great work and I cannot wait to hear the beautiful tribute to your father! I love you still, I love you forever!

    Hi David,
    Your Dad is what you take on him, inside your heart.
    You consider Jack Cassidy very important in your life.
    He was an example to you of a great artist!
    And this defined per you, the way of the entertainment world, is not?
    Will be a beautiful tribute to him, and will be something very special for you.
    So it’s special for us your fans, too.
    I hope it will not be your last recording, but if so, will be marvelous and unforgettable, just as you are, to all of us.
    Success dear David!

    With Love,

    Hi Jackson Snipes 😉 I am a Canadian blogger who advocates for raising mental health awareness. I hope you take my words to heart. I hope they give you a little bit of “silver lining” as you go forward. I was born in ’59 and must be the only girl on the planet that did NOT know who David Cassidy was during the 70’s. I say this so that you know I reach out to you simply as someone who cares and can relate closely to the new challenges in your life. While it broke my heart to care for my father during his years of living with dementia (which is VERY different than Alzheimer’s) my dad, on the other hand, still had a life full of light and laughter, fun and adventure. carefree and happy. While dementia stripped him of many cognitive functions, it also allowed him an unexpected freedom. He did not dwell on battling the disease because he wasn’t really cognitively aware of it. My point is this … going forward you will still be a vital and important person to those you love and whom love you. You will still find much to enjoy in your life. Your eyes will still sparkle and your infectious smile will continue to be your gift to those you share it with.

    Happy trails …

    David,

    I’m glad you are going to get that tribute album recorded. It’s been on your to-do list for a while now. It is hard to confront some things from our past and we do tend to put doing unpleasant things off.

    I hope that recording this album will be at least somewhat healing to you where your father is concerned. As you are forced to think about that hurtful situation, it may help to try to view it from the viewpoint of a third person looking at it from afar and seeing the big picture.

    I can relate to your situation a little bit. My dad abandoned me and my mom for another woman and her family when I was 15. In my case, of course, my dad was not my role model for my sex. But he did sour me on the notion of marriage from the time I caught him cheating on my mom onward. It was an impressionable age.

    I’m sad to hear that you won’t be recording after this album. I hope that is not because of the dementia, as I’d hoped you were getting better. Please try the organic coconut oil if you haven’t. It is a cheap fix, so what would you have to lose by trying it out for a month?

    As for the most talented man on the planet, I would have to disagree with you because I would say that person has been YOU, my dear David!

    I hope you have a great time in Chicago. I visited there once and got to eat at one of the special pizza places there. I rode in a carriage, etc. Well, it impressed me anyway.

    Much love,
    Margaret

      P.S. A tribute to your father is a wonderful idea, as he was a wonderful actor who also hooked you up with key people who put you onto the path of success. It is obvious that professionalism was instilled in you in both your work ethic and in your stage presence. Videos of you as a young man also show how very polite you had been trained to be. It is very heartwarming to watch. Somebody trained you well in the various aspects! I look forward to the new album!

I went to a track, had great day,and going out dinner. Can’t wait to send you my next letter. And Felicia David’s father songs , I can’t wait. Your father was proud of you David, so here’s the best part thanks to your dad and mom we got you. What a blessing it has been. Things work out for reasons we will never understand.

    We have never met but I had the honor to see your performance in concert back in Sept72. You had an impact in my/our lives and I´ve loved you sincerely as the person you are not the persona you portrayed in PF. The 60s,70s,80s, Man!! what a time to be alive and witness all that great talent!!
    I am sure you will pour out your heart into this new project as a tribute, not only to your father, but to your mother as well. I am sure you all sang these very songs with him.
    Have fun with your fantastic, highly professional, friends who will work on this with you and help create your masterpiece.

I was hoping you would keep the bear but you said you have a small bag . No room for the bear. I was sad you did not take the bear. But you kiss the bear and hug it and then you give it back to me and i feel something down my back a good feeling. I always went to meet you . I love see you in person. You are a wonderful man.

    Dear David,
    I’m happy to hear that you have plans to make more music, but it feels painful to hear you say that this will be your last CD. I hope you are taking care of yourself. I know that things have been really, really rough for you recently, but if you can find a good psychologist or psychiatrist, you can make it through. You are not only a human being worthy of life and happiness; your musical and acting accomplishments make you an American national treasure! Please, please seek immediate help if you ever feel unworthy of being loved. Think of all the other celebrities who have had severe issues to deal with, and are hanging on OK: Cher, with her transsexual daughter; Michael Buble, struggling to help his little son who is sick with cancer; Celine Dion, who lost two family members at nearly the same time, just to name a few. There are thousands of performers who have had to cope with addiction. I know your father had some serious issues, but just because you are his son doesn’t mean you have to follow a similar destructive path. Declare your independence! In the words of Donald Trump (though I know he’s not your favorite politician): Reclaim your identity! Love, Leihsia

    Hello David! This album sounds wonderful! I remember watching you and your Dad on Merv Griffin years ago. You and your Dad sang a beautiful rendition of “Danny Boy”. It was special seeing you both together. Apparently, it made a big impression on me since I remember it to this day. God bless you as you take this memorable journey. Can’t wait to hear it.

      Robyn …
      I wonder if David could get the rights for the audio of his duet with his dad “Danny Boy” from Merv Griffin Enterprises to use on the CD … it would make a nice first song (or maybe final song).

        Because of this recording, there’s no doubt in my mind that Jack loved David and already admired David’s career.

          Wow. With fans knowing the history of the relationship between Jack and David — a powerful audio. Yes, should be included in this recording-in-progress effort in Chicago.

    David …

    Looking forward to the album. I hope there’ll be one or two songs stripped down to just your voice and a piano and the bare additional musical instrument or two… certain ballads sound so moving that way.
    This is not a link to a song that will fit the album theme … its just a sample of a simple vocal+piano … yet very moving arrangement …
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IA-EMX8SzRo

    Are you planning any Railroad themed songs … since your dad comes from a long line of LI Railroad men???
    https://harpers.org/blog/2014/06/the-twenty-three-best-train-songs-ever-written-maybe/
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_train_songs

    You mentioned the LONG Railroad lineage on your dad’s side of the family at your live concert and when I looked it up online after the concert I found out your dad had written a play with a RR theme…
    “Playwright Jack Cassidy has written a play, ‘A Waltz for Willie Ryan’, which he describes as a comedy drama about railroad men set prior to Pearl Harbor”

    Much love … Joanne (from NY State)

    I’ll end with a quote by Jack Cassidy…
    “Water is humbling.
    The ocean is a wonderful contradiction of
    ultimate peace and overwhelming power.”

    On facebook,I just saw David sing in the Jerry Lewis Special one of his songs his father taught him at seven years old. I could play that song over and over ,David yes I really agree and see now why you are going to record the songs you learned from your dad. One is not enough. Us fans are excited and have something special to look forward to when you ate done recording. Hi Felicia, I sent you a letter yesterday, explaining the latest, your letter arrived, I will open on Friday Thxs. David’s voice will really be special, when those special songs are recorded. I’m taken back, when singers were singers and you are one of them David. You blessed my era, so glad I got to enjoy all your singing. I loved your concerts, and when I saw you in theatre, you are one fine polished actor with a voice. Enjoy Chicago, and take very good care of yourself.

    Hi David, I”m very happy that you’re recording again. I am especially happy about this tribute to your beloved Dad. I was just taken aback at the thought that you’ve said it will be your last recording. I pray that it won’t be your last anything. Lennon used to say, ‘where there’s life, there is hope’. Never give up hope, never give up on your dreams. <3 love you. x

    I’m glad David is going to Chicago, the music he his going to record will be a new favorite, with David’s good memory of his Dad. I do think at that time he taught David those songs,there was alot of love , the picture says it. We all know now, that adults are human and make mistakes, and to this day, I remember my parents,the problems start out small, and they get bigger and bigger,and as a kid you just don’t understand. Those songs with your dad was a good memory. Record those songs as a celebration,of love and happiness that is in your heart David. And hi Felicia, my sister had to cancel the visit and is not coming from Chicago. I’m still meeting up with the one here with the twins. I been to Chicago many times, I can’t go now, I may go end summer. Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, and to all the moms in the heavens above. To all moms, who care for all the pets we have. Bless you David, you made your mom happy, and she had the best son ever. What a gift to have someone as special as you who made our world a happy place. And you put us in a happy place. Have a really great time in Chicago.

    Just took a moment ,in my insane day , to listen to the Merv Griffin interview when Jack Cassidy was host and David was a Guest at 21 years old. David that must have been the interview that put the pressure on, you sound calm in your voice, professional, how did you do it, went perfect. You were so mature for your age back than. When you sang Danny Boy, you can really hear your sound in your voice that is so different from other voices. God gave you a gift. Now it getting more exciting to your new recordings, I agree with your other fans, will Danny Boy be included. Your fans have great ideas. We followed your journey, and the Merv Griffin show with your dad as host and you guest , I don’t know where I was but in 1972; I missed it, and I bet you looked so good in that interview. You aced it, what a memory.

    May 18th. I am feeling better. I am doing better.
    My philosophy is nothing changes if nobody
    changes. I have to change. I only can control
    myself. I can not control anybody else! So I have
    to walk in forgiveness, and show mercy and
    compassion to the person who has hurt me.
    Hurt people hurt people! I am going out to
    dinner with my friend Laura tonight. Life is
    too short to sweat the small stuff. Thank you
    for being such a supportive friend. It has been
    3 weeks since I got back from California, and I
    am so glad to be back home. Thank you for
    understanding me. I can move forward now.

      David,
      I just ran across another piece of health-related information that might interest you. There is an herb named Kudzu that grows like an aggressive vine and has little flowers on it. It is used to clean the body of toxins, alcohol, etc. and lowers one’s desire for alcohol! Instead of managing it, there appears to be a way to make the matter just go away! All parts of the plant can be consumed.

      Peace

    David,
    I am so excited that you will honoring you father in this way. I was a child of the 50s’ and thought – and still do – that Jack Cassidy was the most attractive and talented man to walk the planet. What a combination. I was always disappointed that his wonderful personality was never fully showcased on film or television. With the age of the internet, many of his appearances and performances are available to stream and I find myself going back time and time again to see Jack. I can only imagine the spirited and witty conversations shared around a dinner table. He always reminded me of an angel with sin on his mind. Thank you my dear friend for saving some of your memories on vinyl – do they even still use that phrase – for the world. As one who on occasion forgets how to spell, I wish you peace in your travels. Know that you are loved – always!

    I’m sure your father was always proud of you even if he may not have showed it or said it. You are a good son. Good luck with the recording in Chicago. By the way, I was at the Detroit Tigers game last week and in between one of the innings they do the “Kiss Cam” and your song, I think I Love You, was being played during the clips of fans kissing. Never get tired of hearing it and thought of you and hope you are doing well. Your fans are always behind you you David!!! And I am one of them!

    I love the idea for the new album… Nothing wrong with making peace with the past, and acknowledging the best in someone. I can’t wait to hear it… I hope you release it as a “real” album, something tangible and not just for download… I’, still kind of old fashioned that way. I don’t have any music downloaded, but I continue to buy hard copies. And I’m so glad that vinyl albums are making a comeback!!! Please, Please, Please release this new album as a “real” album!!!!!
    Have fun with it, with the recording and with honoring the memories!
    Although some fans have asked “Why end messages with Happy Trails?” I knew the reference from the very beginning… Roy Rogers & Dale Evans, Trigger & Buttermilk (I think that’s right… I’m getting older too… LOL)

    Soooooo…….

    Who cares about the clouds when we’re together?
    Just sing a song and bring the sunny weather.
    Happy trails to you,
    Until we meet again!

    Love Always,

    I was able to see your dad Jack Cassidy up and in person
    In Dallas at the Venetian room at the Fairmont.
    It was the tour with him and Shirley. They found out
    It was my birthday and stopped the show and asked me to
    Stand up and wished me a happy birthday.
    They then sang happy birthday, and dedicated the show to
    Me. Best night ever.
    I stayed in contact with Shirley. I was so sad when I heard
    That your dad had passed.
    I understand your feelings, I pretty much had the same
    Background. Thank the lord I had a strong mother as I am sure
    U had. Hang in there David, we r all here for you!
    Remember Hope,love, and laughter is the best thing.
    I will end this note to u as u end your letters to your fans.
