Former teen idol David Cassidy (Partridge Family), is said to be planning to transform his upcoming show he was to co-headline with his friend Davy Jones now into a tribute to The Monkees star, who died on Wednesday, February 29, 2012. Jones passed away after he suffered a heart attack at his ranch in Florida, Cassidy claims.
“the world seems a little less light”.
“I have a concert coming up that Davy and I were supposed to do in Miami next month. I’m going to do it, and do a tribute to Davy Jones… I’ll miss him.”
The star tells Entertainment Tonight,
”I loved the guy. He became my friend later and I admired his talent, respected him a lot for enduring the kind of backlash to having that kind of fame. He was a deeply caring guy.”
Cassidy tells the news show he had heard that Jones had apparently “been having problems breathing” in the days leading up to his death.
