David Cassidy has been having one of those weeks.
. . .
Ironically, Cassidy says he’s never crossed paths with any members of the true-life family pop group that inspired “The Partridge Family,” The Cowsills, one of whose members, John Cowsill, years later joined the Beach Boys’ touring band (in fact, he was on stage with them at the Boys’ 2010 U.S. Cellular Coliseum show).
Sealing the Partridge-Cowsills connection: the same songwriter who penned Cowsills hits like “Indian Lake” penned the Partridges’ lone No. 1 hit, “I Think I Love You.”
“People ask me that all the time,” says Cassidy. “But I don’t think I’ve met any of them even once; by the time we came along, they’d peaked and were kind of out of it by then.”
