D is for Two Davids and a Donny.
David Cassidy, David Essex and Donny Osmond, although I had to keep Donny a bit of a secret as it wasn't quite "cool" to like him as he was younger than I was.
David Cassidy first came to our televisions starring on the American programme The Partridge Family, and once he started singing we all fell madly in love with him. I Think I love You, Could It Be Forever, How Can I be Sure? I would play them over and over and still know every word to all his songs.
David Essex was cool. He starred in the film That'll Be The Day as a struggling rock star. He had nineteen top forty singles and two number one hits in the UK. Hold Me Close,Starlight, Rock On and Oh What A Circus are just a few. David recently joined the cast of the soap Eastenders and showed he still has his cheeky smile.
A footnote is although I never got to see any of my idols in concert when I had their posters on my wall, I did see two of them as few years ago. David Cassidy and David Essex joined with The Osmonds (without Donny) To perfom a "Once in a Liftime" concert tour and my daughter and I went to see them.
It was like a dream come true to watch my pin ups live on stage and a night I will never forget.
Indulge yourself in David Cassidy singing,"Could it Be Forever" there is a part near the end when he says"but" my friend Loiuse and I used to move the needle of the record player back over it so he repeated in again and again and we swooned and swooned ! Oh sorry I'm getting carried away!!
