  • David Cassidy: Partridge Family star dies aged 67

    Strange nobody put this up.

    US actor and singer David Cassidy, who found fame in The Partridge Family before going on to become a 1970s teen pop idol, has died aged 67.

    "David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long," a family statement said.

    He was admitted to hospital last week after suffering multiple organ failure.

    Earlier this year the singer said he had dementia and would stop touring in order to "enjoy life".

    At the peak of his fame in the 1970s, his fan club reportedly had a bigger membership than that of The Beatles and Elvis Presley combined.

      If someone passes away it goes in this section and if his fan club reportedly had a bigger membership than that of The Beatles and Elvis Presley combined. then it is worthy of a mention.

        You're right that it's worthy of a mention, however, it should always go into Off Topics when the person is not associated with British Film or television.
        Them's the rules, because this is "Britmovie".
