A&E Network's Exclusive Biography Event DAVID CASSIDY: THE LAST SESSION Premieres Monday, June 11A&E Network's Exclusive Biography Event DAVID CASSIDY: THE LAST SESSION Premieres Monday, June 11
by BWW News Desk - Jun 6, 2018

A&E Network will premiere the original 'Biography' documentary special 'David Cassidy: The Last Session,' which intertwines an intimate biography of the late David Cassidy as told through his own words in never-before-heard audio tapes from 1976 with a raw and poignantly filmed final recording session. Late last year, grappling with the onset of dementia and headed into the studio to record a tribute to his father, Jack Cassidy, David invited a documentary film crew to chronicle the journey. During production David fell gravely and unexpectedly ill and it was during this time, he revealed to producers that his struggle with alcoholism had continued up through the recording session, and that his doctors had concluded that alcohol poisoning had likely been the chief cause of his tragic health decline, including his dementia. He would tragically pass away a few weeks later. The two-hour, 'Biography' special 'David Cassidy: The Last Session' will premiere on Monday, June 11 at 9PM ET/PT on A&E. (more...)

'Others, who did not know him, can write obituaries about David Cassidy. I want to share some personal remembrances. I knew him, I liked him, I am saddened by his loss. I was glad that David chose me to ghost-write his autobiography, 'C'Mon Get Happy' (by David Cassidy with Chip Deffaa, published by Warner Books). And writing that book with him was an intense experience. He was open, candid, frank, and a fantastic storyteller. He had a seemingly endless supply of self-deprecating stories to tell, which I appreciated. He shared everything with me, with the understanding that we could decide later what to put into the book, and what to keep private. I liked his openness. (more...)
