Shaun Cassidy

A major teen idol of the late '70s, actor/singer Shaun Cassidy rocketed to fame both on the pop charts and on television, much as his half-brother David Cassidy had done earlier in the decade. The son of actors Jack Cassidy and Shirley Jones, he was born in Hollywood on September 27, 1959, and formed his first band at the age of 11. After signing with Mike Curb's division of Warner Bros. in 1975, Cassidy issued his 1976 debut single, "Morning Girl," which became a major European hit and made the singer the subject of considerable fan adulation and teen magazine scrutiny. The follow-up, a cover of Eric Carmen's "That's Rock 'n' Roll," was also a success abroad, especially in Australia.
