A DR. PHIL EXCLUSIVE: THE DAVID CASSIDY INTERVIEW AIRS WEDNESDAY, MARCH 1

 

 When friends or family members ask you, ‘Remember, I just told you this two days ago?’ and there’s no memory of it… that’s when I began to be very concerned.”
– David Cassidy

 

(Hollywood, CA – February 28, 2017) – DR. PHIL, television’s #1-rated daytime talk show, continues its 15th hit season with the ripped-from-the-headlines exclusive television interview with singer/songwriter and actor David Cassidy. Cassidy recently announced that he is suffering from dementia and says that the brain disease has forced him to retire and stop performing. Diagnosed two-and-a-half years ago, Cassidy addresses the accusations that he was intoxicated at his last concert performance, discusses the status of his current relationship with his family and his fear of being a burden to them, and if he believes his past alcoholism contributed to his condition.  Cassidy shot to superstardom in 1970 as Keith Partridge on the hit TV series, “The Partridge Family,” and has sold over 25 million albums earning 18 gold and platinum records. The all-new DR. PHIL episode airs Wednesday, March 1st (check local listings).

Selected quotes from the episode:

 

I have the beginning stages… the early stages of dementia.” – David Cassidy

 

To clear that rumor up, you were not drunk at the Agoura Hills performance?” – Dr. Phil asking Cassidy about his recent concert.

 

I want you to promise me you’ll find a way to let me go and don’t let me live like that.” – Cassidy on what he told his son about not wanting to succumb to the disease as his mother did.
