Overview

Could It Be Forever? My Story by David Cassidy

In the seventies, when he was just 20 years old, David Cassidy achieved the sort of teen idol fame that is rarely seen. He was mobbed everywhere he went. His clothes were regularly ripped off by adoring fans. He sold records the world over. He was bigger than Elvis. And all thanks to a hit TV show called The Partridge Family. Now, in his own words, this is a brutally frank account of those mindblowing days of stardom in which being David Cassidy played second fiddle to being Keith Partridge. Including stories of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll that explode the myth of Cassidy as squeaky clean, it's also the story of how to keep on living life and loving yourself when the fickle fans fall away.

About the Author

In the autumn of 1970, after a brief acting career on Broadway and with various guest appearances on American TV shows, The Partridge Family catapulted David Cassidy to fame. Aged just 20, his face was on the cover of every teenage magazine. He became an international pop star. In 1974, his exhausting schedule took its toll on the quality of his life. David retired but has, since the 1990s, regularly appeared in and produced musicals in the States, and toured live - with Donny Osmond in particular - to appreciative audiences, particularly in the UK. He is happily married and has two children.

David Cassidy is very open and honest about his life. He allows people that know him, like his brothers, to speak honestly about what they think of him and some of the things he has done. Occasionally I found myself raising my eyebrow at the names that were dropped but, then I just got over it and felt like he was trying to make you understand who he was and the people he rubbed shoulders with who were his friends and peers...not so much "I was/am great see who I hung out with?" Once or twice I did feel like he was a bit paranoid in thinking people/press was picking on him but I guess that is left over from his time in the hot spotlight. All in all a good book, easy read and you do get a sense of who he is and was.

Great insight about a guy who was my very first crush. RIP, David.

This was an interesting read that kept me coming back. DC seems candid here, if a bit self-indulgent, recounting his travels from the early days, focusing primarily on his life-changing events in and around 1970. He details his experiences both on and off stage, interspersed with personal notes from people directly involved. As someone who enjoys DC's voice and talent, and who enjoys reading about the perks and perils of pop stardom, I thoroughly enjoyed the read. His as-late (and ultimately fatal) health battles are not mentioned.
