Default David Cassidy talked about John Lennon on the radio this morning

I was listening to the Chicago oldies station this morning and they're having David Cassidy on all week. Well, this morning, he talked about John for awhile. He said on New Years Eve, 1974, John was at David's house and two of them went into another room and started playing Beatles songs. Both of them were a little drunk. The first song they played was "No Reply." David sang Paul's and John, well, he sang his part. They even played some of David's song (such as "Rock Me Baby"). He said John had liked that song. I didn't know John knew any of David's songs. I find that fascinating, considering I don't think John watched The Partridge Family. Also, David was a teen idol. So, it was interesting to hear about him knowing some of David's songs too. David also said that this was the time when he was with May Pang. He did say some nice things about Yoko too. That was all I heard before I had to leave for work. I like some of The Partridge Family songs, but I'm not really a fan of David Cassidy. But the way he talked about John, you could tell he liked him and cared for him. He said, he (John) was quiet. What nice memories he has of John. I'll bet he's glad he met him. David is going to be on for the rest of the week, so if I hear anything else about John, I'll let you know!

That is really nice to hear and yes I can very much see John doing "Rock Me Baby"... and for those who know the song... link it to Come Together and you will find there is quite some similarity in it.

David said:"Around 74 - 75 John Lennon was a great positive influence on my life. Hed understand my experience; hed taken the steps of demystification. George wrote Here Come The Sun symbolising his entry back into the world again, be a real person rather than just a .... thing. I knew that ultimately Id find my way."

This is a nice story, but it doesn't surprise me. John was very up to speed on the music scene and it seems only natural that he would want to discuss and play music with someone whose talent he recognized.

David Cassidy was plainly a talented actor and musician (although I never cared for the Partridge Family, sneeringly dismissing the 1970-1974 constructed ensemble as "not being a real group" or taking the Partridge Family seriously) and he has written a number of songs. I read his autobiography a few years ago and it was very interesting indeed.

I heard David talking about it on the radio as well. Nice that since he was such a big Beatles fan that he got to spend some time with John.

Well David was "mentioned" in May Pang's book when she & John met him while they were living in L.A....they were both fond of each other''s music, David mostly of John's solo & the Beatles music!

In fact...according to May, John got JEALOUS of Davd, I guess he thougt he was coming on May and as soon as she & John got home, they had a HUGE ARGUEMNET about David, figured since May & David were around the same age, she was going to leave him for David...remember John was a very insecure person...

Yes, I do remember that part in May's book...
John: "You ordered the same thing in the restaurant!!" (May had ordered spaghetti and so did David) Good God, John! :) It was funny reading that line, but it certainly wasn't funny reading about John going on a jealous rampage. That story was not mentioned on the radio (probably for obvious reasons). The other one was a nice story to hear.

I believe I read somewhere that John and David had met before. I could be wrong, but I think it was around '72 or '73, John and Yoko went out to eat with David. I'm not sure, but I think it was mentioned in David's autobiography.

Well as a kid in the early 70s I knew who the Partridge Family was before I knew who the Beatles were. I wanted TO BE David Cassidy! To bad there are no recordings of this jam session. Or are there.....

I have David Cassidy's autobiography and he did say that he went out to dinner with John and Yoko in the early 70s.

Does it matter? I know it's in there too, but I don't remember which chapter or page off the top of my head.

Verification of facts is great, AnyRoad, but honestly...must you be so argumentative every time someone says they saw something in a book but can't immediately produce the exact page, paragraph, sentence or word?
