Born to singer and actor Jack Cassidy and actress Evelyn Ward spent the early years of his life with his grandparents in New Jersey. Though later he realized that his parents had been divorced for over two years and he was oblivious to that fact. Later his father married singer and actress Shirley Jones.

Cassidy made his debut in 1969 Broadway Musical The Fig Leaves Are Falling. That stint only lasted for about four performances, though that was what got him on radar and landed him the role of Keith Partridge in the musical sitcom ‘The Partridge Family’. The makers of the show did not care if Cassidy could sing or not when they cast him, they just knew that his androgynous looks were enough for roaring success of the show.

Last David Cassidy was seen in was an episode CSI: Crime Scene Investigation in 2013.
