Famous Fans Pay Tribute To David Cassidy

The likes of Brian Wilson, Diane Warren, Marie Osmond, Harry Connick Jr, and film director Kevin Smith are among the countless stars who have taken to Twitter this morning to pay moving tributes to their music idol.

The former teen star David Cassidy has died at the age of 67 from organ failure, only seven months after it was announced that he was battling dementia.

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

"Thank you for the abundance and support you have shown him these many years."

David first came to the world's attention as the star of the smash hit TV show The Partridge Family, which aired from 1970-74.

The show gave him an audience for his music and his first major single 'I think I Love You' hit number one, selling five million copies.

At one point, his fan club had more members than Elvis or The Beatles.

Writing on Twitter, Brian Wilson stated: "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."

While Diane Warren stated: "Bye bye childhood RIP David Cassidy."

And Kevin Smith wrote: "I grew up in an era before even cable TV, when The Partridge Family was already in reruns. David Cassidy's Keith was one of my favorite TV characters. He was legit funny AND he could sing. The man entertained me during my childhood and even years later."

While Harry Connick Jr shared this lovely photo:
