Teen Age Idol

Teen Age Idol

Usually I don’t have a lot of time for the teen stars that come and go in the music world, but today’s forgotten oldie artist has some pretty stellar credentials.  Also, I had a request from a listener who swears she and her friends wore out several copies of our forgotten oldie on 45 just dancing and singing along with it.  The son of Shirley Jones and Jack Cassidy, Shaun is also David Cassidy’s little brother.  In 1976 he started a singing career which lasted about four years, produced four hit records and evolved into a TV acting career.  For the past 20 years he’s been a successful TV writer and producer.  Today’s forgotten oldie was Shaun’s second hit, written by Eric Carmen and reaching #3 on the hot 100 in 1977… “That’s Rock and Roll”.
