R.I.P. David Bruce Cassidy (April 12, 1950 – November 21, 2017)

“The Last Kiss” was the first single taken from the seventh studio album Romance by American actor, singer, songwriter, and guitarist David Cassidy.

The song features backing vocals by George Michael.”The Last Kiss” peaked at UK #6, Ireland #9, Denmark #10 and #60 in Australia. The single was not released in the U.S..

On February 20, 2017, Cassidy announced that he was living with dementia, the condition that his mother suffered from at the end of her life. He retired from performing in early 2017 when the condition became noticeable during a performance in which he forgot lyrics and otherwise struggled.

On November 18, 2017, it was announced that Cassidy had been hospitalized suffering from liver and kidney failure, and was critically ill in a medically-induced coma. He was out of the coma two days later, but remained in critical but stable condition, with doctors hoping to keep him stable until a liver became available for transplant. Cassidy died on November 21, 2017, aged 67.
