After David Cassidy signed with Universal Studios in , Jack introduced him to former table tennis champion and close friend Ruth Aarons , who later found her niche as a talent manager, given her theater background.
Aarons became an authority figure and close friend to Cassidy, and was the driving force behind his on-screen success.
After Cassidy made small wages from Screen Gems for his work on The Partridge Family during season one, Aarons discovered that he had been underage when he signed his contract; she then renegotiated the contract with far superior provisions and a rare four-year term.
It closed after four performances,  but a casting director saw the show and asked Cassidy to make a screen test. In , he moved to Los Angeles.
After demonstrating his singing talent, Cassidy was allowed to join the studio ensemble as the lead singer. In the midst of his rise to fame, Cassidy felt stifled by the show and trapped by the mass hysteria surrounding his every move.
Within the first year, he had produced his own single, a cover of The Association's " Cherish " from the album of the same title ; the song reached number nine in the United States, number two in the United Kingdom a double A-side with "Could It Be Forever" , and number one in Australia and New Zealand.
He began tours that featured Partridge tunes and his own hits. Though he wanted to become a respected rock musician along the lines of Mick Jagger , his channel to stardom launched him into the ranks of teen idol , a brand he loathed until much later in life, when he managed to come to terms with his bubblegum pop beginnings.
Internationally, Cassidy's solo career eclipsed the already phenomenal success of The Partridge Family. He became an instant drawing card, with sellout concert successes in major arenas around the world.
These concerts produced mass hysteria, resulting in the media coining the term "Cassidymania". For example, he played to two sellout crowds of 56, each at the Houston Astrodome in Texas over one weekend in A turning point in Cassidy's live concerts while still filming The Partridge Family was a gate stampede at a show in London's White City Stadium on May 26, , when nearly people were injured in a crush at the front of the stage.
Thirty were taken to the hospital, and a year-old girl, Bernadette Whelan, died four days later at London's Hammersmith Hospital without regaining consciousness.
A deeply affected Cassidy faced the press, trying to make sense of what had happened. Out of respect for the family and to avoid turning the girl's funeral into a media circus, Cassidy did not attend the service, although he spoke to Whelan's parents and sent flowers.
Cassidy stated at the time that this would haunt him until the day he died. By this point, Cassidy had decided to quit both touring and acting in The Partridge Family , concentrating instead on recording and songwriting.
International success continued, mostly in Great Britain, Germany, Japan and South Africa, when he released three well-received solo albums and several hit singles on RCA in and Cassidy became the first recording artist to have a hit with " I Write the Songs ", peaking at 11 in the Top 40 in Great Britain before the song became Barry Manilow 's signature tune.
A decade later, the successful Fox series 21 Jump Street used the same plot, with different youthful-looking police officers infiltrating a high school.
Cassidy later stated he was broke by the s, despite being successful and highly paid. These went gold in Europe and Australia, and Cassidy supported them with a sellout tour of the United Kingdom, which resulted in the Greatest Hits Live compilation of Cassidy performed in musical theater.
In , he toured in a revival of a pre-Broadway production of Little Johnny Jones , a show originally produced in with music, lyrics, and book by George M.
However, Cassidy received negative reviews, and he was replaced by another former teen idol, Donny Osmond ,  before the show reached Broadway.
