Biography

Shaun Paul Cassidy (born September 27, 1958 in Los Angeles, California) is an American singer, actor and TV producer and writer.

The oldest of three sons born to Shirley Jones and Broadway entertainer/television star Jack Cassidy, he first found success as a teen idol, following in the footsteps of his elder half-brother, David Cassidy of TV’s The Partridge Family. He went to Beverly Hills High School.

He released several successful singles in the late 1970s. His first single, “Morning Girl”, a The Neon Philharmonic classic, didn’t chart in the USA but did well in Europe. His second single, a cover version of The Crystals’ “Da Doo Ron Ron”, hit #1 in the United States in 1977, and he, like David, became a major teen idol. He achieved two further top ten singles with cover versions of Eric Carmen’s “That’s Rock ‘N’ Roll” and “Hey Deanie” in 1977 and his first three albums also sold well. Cassidy and his mother Shirley Jones of the Partridge Family are the only mother and son to each have a song reach number one on the Billboard Hot One Hundred Charts. Cassidy also achieved chart success and toured in Australia.

Cassidy starred opposite Parker Stevenson in the popular The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries television series, which ran for several seasons on ABC-TV, starting in 1977.
