    Randy Sparks, founder of the folk group The New Christy Minstrels, is a friend. After he sold his interest in the group in 1964 (he re-acquired it in 2005 and at age 84 still tours the country with the re-constituted NCM) he operated a folk music night club in West L.A.

    E-mail from Randy yesterday:

    I've seen a few documentaries about him. The girls (and women) threw themselves at him. Not just him, but he had a rooomate for a while and the roommate said girls would knock on their door while he was on tour. The roommate would invite them in, explain that David was gone, but they could....*ahem*...keep him occupied until David returned.

    I felt bad that he knew alcohol was a problem he couldn't overcome. But he always did seem like a good guy.

    Too bad Susan Dey could never forgive him though.

    I was in high school when the show was on TV. My older sister loved it but I thought it was silly. Still don’t see the attraction.

    The show was great. David was talented, indeed.

    My sister (older than me) had posters of David and Mick Jagger on the walls in her room.

    I am in the demographic that would have gone crazy for him back then. He was cute, but a little too sweet. Sad, nevertheless.

    Me too. But I was out at night doing what teenage boys do with a drivers license.

    We threatened to paint my friend's RV-7A like the Partridge Family bus, with rattle cans from Home Depot.

    So sad. RIP, Mr. Cassidy.

    Read that his biggest song was "I Think I Love You", yikes if that's the best he could do!
    Never liked the show, but RIP!

    His filmography ranged from 1969 to 2013, that's pretty impressive. I never cared for his singing.

    Gosh, well over 24 hours and no vitriol about addiction, being a scumbag, etc, like the "just another dead crack whore" comments when Whitney Houston passed.

    Henning is dearly missed. <not>

    We expended all of our vitriol for this week on Manson. Though I’m sure we still got some in reserve.
