David Cassidy Forever

David Cassidy appeared on bubble gum, posters, comic books, t-shirts, lunchboxes, trading cards and, controversially, he was pictured naked on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. 40 years later, the teen idol of the 1970s, looks back at the madness with Johnnie Walker.

He talks about his starring role in The Partridge Family, which catapulted him to fame, what it was like dodging the adoring fans with a police escort, and playing to screaming fans.

Also on the show, Johnnie features some of the work of Thin Lizzy to coincide with an exhibition at the British Music Experience in the O2 Arena which profiles its lead singer, the late Phil Lynott. Phil's mum, Philomena talks about his first forays into music and how proud she is of his legacy, while Johnnie picks some of his favourite tracks from the band.
