So heartbreaking to hear of David Cassidy’s passing. He was a trailblazer for teen idols for decades to come. I didn’t know him well but I am fortunate to call his brother Patrick a friend and I send all David’s family and friends my heartfelt condolences.

I’m very sad to hear about David Cassidy. There were times in the mid-1970s when he would come over to my house and we even started writing a song together. He was a very talented and nice person. Love & Mercy to David and his family.
