Re: “And Did David Cassidy Do Elgin Dirty?

To everyone on this forum.. this is davids son. i know this is probably really sad that im litterally coming on this website and talking about this but its gotten to the point where i feel like i have to. Telling just a couple of people all of this probs wont do much but atleast you all are here so i might as well talk about this. for those of you who actually think that it was my dad responding.. dream on. he can hardly use a computer, let alone use internet lingo (wtf). This is the only time that i will respond to this but all of these comments have hit me so deep that i just cant take this anymore. Most of you know that my dad is an alcoholic. Contrary to popular belief, drugs have not been a factor in his life since before i was even born. Alcohol though, is a completely different story. He struggles every day with it, and has had major trouble staying sober. The only way I can know the truth about what is going on is by just going on the internet and seeing what people have to say because i doubt my dad would ever just come out and tell me he was a mess onstage. My mom cant know either because she doesnt go on tour with him. It sucks. But seeing all of this just sets in the reality of what I have feared for a long time. . He has been in a tough place for a long time, hes just been good at hiding it until recently. I think its the combination of alot of things. My parents will probably chastise me for making this information public, but i really feel like that might be one of the only ways for him to get the realization. My dad is honestly just a wonderful human being who has had one of the craziest lives in the history of mankind. All of that has effected him. He is very different than he was when most people remember him and even when I remember him as a young kid. Its been a tough road and it will continue to be tough. So I just want to take a minute and say I am so sorry for all of the pain that these antics might have caused fans out there and people who have respected his work. Again i love him more than anything in the entire world and hes a fantastic person who has just gone through alot. My mom and I are doing our best to try and help him with both his disease and personal life. Just know that he does care about everyone that has followed him over the many years, and always will. Thank you so much.
