David and I spoke today and he’s looking forward to playing in California this weekend. David loves performing live but this, unfortunately, may be the last time in CA as travelling with an arthritic back is becoming very difficult for David.
David wanted me to tell you that he is really looking forward to recording with Craig and the rest of the band. One of the songs to be recorded, as you may know, is “Night and Day”. David recounted riding in the car with his dad when he was about 3 years old and Jack was teaching him to sing “Night and Day”. Many of the other songs to be recorded also have a special meaning for David. The recording will be done live in a sound booth with musicians, the good old fashioned way!
David will be on Good Day LA on Friday. He and Craig will be performing Night and Day. If you miss this show you should be able to view it online.
David wanted to let you all know that he is looking forward to his 65th birthday so that he can say to people: “I actually made it!”
David Cassidy and his Band at the State Theatre – An Eclectic Evening of Music
The 1970s came to life when David Cassidy and his band rocked the State Theatre January 9th. After opening the show with “Come on Get Happy,” the theme to the Partridge Family, and “I Can Feel your Heartbeat,” David expressed his gratitude for his fans by proclaiming “I’m feeling the love, baby”. The audience was feeling the love too as they were screaming ecstatically when he appeared on stage.
Read the rest of the review here.
David will be appearing on GOOD DAY LA on Friday, March 20th.
That weekend, David has two concerts in California:
|March 21, 2015
||Saban Theatre, Beverly Hills, CA
|March 22, 2015
||Sycuan Casino, El Cajon, CA
I know David Cassidy has been getting some less than positive press lately about his finances. I wanted to share a short interaction I had with him that told me the kind of person he is when he wasn’t on stage.
About 20 plus years ago, I was a contestant on Win Lose or Draw. David Cassidy was one of the celebrities on the show with us that week.
All the celebrities were polite and professional. We filmed 5 shows in one day so it was a very long day. Midway through filming, we had lunch set up in a side stage area. There were large white curtains dividing the contestants area from the celebrities area.
As we all sat down to lunch, David Cassidy came around the curtain and sat at one of our tables. He talked to us like an old friend. No other celebrity ventured to our side. It was a small gesture, but left a big impression on us. Everyone just thought “what a nice guy, he must be very genuine”.
I don’t remember much about that day other than I won some prizes and money and David Cassidy was a very friendly guy.
So maybe he isn’t the richest guy in Hollywood , but he has character which is much more valuable.
