'Partridge Family' star David Cassidy dead at 67

- David Cassidy, the 'Partridge Family' heartthrob who sold millions of records and became the fantasy of millions of girls, has died in a Florida hospital after his organs failed, according to TMZ.

TMZ was first to report Cassidy was in need of a kidney transplant but ultimately doctors said it was futile. 

His liver and other organs shut down and, early Sunday his son and ex-wife were summoned to the hospital to say goodbye.

Cassidy was a multi-faceted entertainer - from singing, to acting, to Broadway, to Vegas.

"The Partridge Family" hit like an earthquake and catapulted him to stardom.

The show ran from 1970 - 1974 and produced hits like "I Think I Love You," "Come On Get Happy," and "Doesn't Somebody Want to Be Wanted."
