Musician and Actor David Cassidy was born on this day, April 12th in 1950, and we wish him a very Happy Birthday! As an aside, when I was 19 years old I had a boyfriend named Mark, who everyone called “Mark Popstar,” because he so closely resembled David Cassidy. That relationship, now decades in the past, was largely inconsequential, but it’s still a nice memory to know that I was once cute enough to get a boy as cute as David Cassidy.
