|Teen and Boomer Idol David Cassidy will make his fans happy
at the the Tropicana in AC
Ladies that is. Ladies for a GNO or ladies who dragged their significant others. Ladies pretty much who are middle-aged. Ladies who most likely had his poster hung in their bedroom and who were fixated in front of the TV on Friday night or positioned in front of a transistor radio tuned to WABC AM radio to hear one of his songs. Ladies who put his singles on their turntables, after carefully placing the little doo-dad in the middle. Ladies who carried their lunches to school in a Partridge Family lunchbox. Ladies who "played" Partridge Family with their friends. And you'll see he's picked up some younger fans as well with his dashing debonair, way cool hair and light FM music.

I saw David a few years ago sharing the stage with Peter Noone of Herman's Hermits and Mickey Dolenz of The Monkees at Westbury Music Fair in NY. You would think these guys would get tired of playing the songs they have been playing for decades. But quite the contrary, it's as if they were battling with each other to get the opportunity to sing. But when it wasn't their turn, they sat. Because, they too, are middle-aged like the ladies who still swoon over them.
If you liked David when you were young, you'll like him in concert. Nothing like seeing your pin-up guy in the flesh.
