And boy could they make attractive music together: Cassidy and Jones, as well as the rest of the Partridge cast that included Susan Dey and Danny Bonaduce, would go on to record 10 albums and five solos during the series, selling millions of copies worldwide.

Rolling Stone, in its Top 25 Teen Idol Breakout Moments, reported, "From the second the Partridge Family began airing, David Cassidy was an icon to legions of teenage girls".

"David died surrounded by those he loved, with joy in his heart and free from the pain that had gripped him for so long", his representative told Entertainment Tonight.

Cassidy was rushed to a Florida hospital on Wednesday, his rep confirmed to ET on Saturday.

He revealed earlier this year he was battling dementia after video emerged of him performing erratically in California.

"To me and millions of us you were forever young".

"Cassidy rose to fame and became a 70's teen heartthrob thanks to his role as Keith Partridge in the sitcom 'The Partridge Family".

Cassidy hit some low points and ended up in rehab in 2014 after his third arrest for driving under the influence.

While he was best known for his music, Cassidy had a number of television stints after his break Partridge Family break, and was even nominated for an Emmy in 1978.

The decision to stop live performances was because "I want to focus on what I am, who I am and how I've been without any distractions", he said at the time.

Before the health announcement, Cassidy had largely kept a low profile, making headlines in recent years mostly with DUI cases.

According to E! News, Cassidy is survived by two children, including Katie Cassidy, who follows in her father's acting footsteps and stars on The CW's Arrow, and a son named Beau.
