The Bucket List: Have You Made Yours?
Huffington Post - 9 months
We've all heard of it: The Bucket List. And I'm not talking about the movie, I'm talking about the real thing. For those of you who may not have heard of it, The Bucket List is a list of things a person wants to do or accomplish before they die. Or, more appropriately, before they "kick the bucket." I haven't made one yet. Why? Because I guess I'm a bit superstitious. For many years, I even avoided making a will because I thought it was admitting to myself, God/The Universe that I was going to die. Yeah, yeah, I know we all are. But I think at some level, we all like to think of ourselves (and our loved ones) as immortal. Anyone who has had loved one die knows that even when it happens, it seems like the impossible just happened. The person you loved with all your heart is suddenly gone from this existence. And it's a sad, horrible experience when you lose someone. But the thought of your own death can be equally scary. Some people aren't afraid to die. And honestly, I envy them ...

Karen Dalton-Beninato: Maroon 5, Jimmy Cliff, Willie Nelson: Jazz Fest Day 5 Trifecta
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Adam Levine started his Maroon 5 set wearing a jacket, as the record cold day at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival necessitated. Levine sang I'm At a Payphone while working the stage, the mic and the audience as the crowd went wild. Once he was down to his signature white tee shirt, the crowd went ... well you get the gist. Young women, for the most part under-dressed for the weather, leaned on the stagefront barricades singing along to every word. In 44 years of Jazz Fest, the screams for each Levine stage pivot sounded decibel record-breaking. He's this tween generation's version of what Shaun Cassidy was to me, so who can judge? I used to dream Cassidy's tour bus would break down in the middle of the Illinois prairie, he would stop for directions and we would hit it off. Maybe eventually get married. I was open to marriage. These days I'm a Jimmy Cliff girl, because who can resist the bass lines? So we raced from Maroon 5 to the Congo Square stage where Cli ...

Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Shaun Cassidy
    FIFTIES
  • 2014
    Age 55
    Cassidy wrote and executive produced the Amazon Studios television series Hysteria which was released for viewing in August 2014.
    More Details Hide Details He is currently serving as executive producer and writer for the forthcoming Emerald City on NBC. Cassidy grew up in Los Angeles and New York City, attending boarding school in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and graduating from Beverly Hills High School. In addition to an elder half-brother, David, he has two younger brothers, Patrick and Ryan Cassidy. Alongside his parents, and half-brother David, Cassidy was represented by former table tennis champion Ruth Aarons, who came from a theatrical family and found her niche later in life as a talent manager. Aarons is responsible for the successful launch of his career in 1977, and managed him during his formative years as a teen idol and musician.
  • TWENTIES
  • 1979
    Age 20
    In December 1979, Cassidy married model Ann Pennington.
    More Details Hide Details They had two children together. Cassidy was also briefly married to actress Susan Diol; they have a daughter. Since 2004, Cassidy has been married to producer Tracey Lynne Turner. They have four children.
    Cassidy's 1979 album Room Service was also unsuccessful and it failed to appear on the US Top 200 Album chart.
    More Details Hide Details Cassidy tried a different musical approach for his next release, 1980's Wasp. The album was more rock/pop-oriented and produced by Todd Rundgren with the group Utopia as the backing band. It featured songs written by Rundgren, and cover versions including David Bowie's "Rebel, Rebel" and The Who's "So Sad About Us" among others. The album, however, was unsuccessful and became Cassidy's second album not to chart on the Billboard Album Chart. Cassidy concentrated on stage acting for most of the 1980s and early 1990s. He appeared on Broadway and West End productions such as Mass Appeal and Bus Stop, as well as the American premiere of Pass/Fail at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. Cassidy won a Dramalogue award for his work in Mark Sheriden's Diary of a Hunger Strike at the L.A.T.C., and his final stage appearance was opposite his half-brother David in the Broadway production of Blood Brothers (which successfully ran for over a year on Broadway). It was during this production that Cassidy wrote his first television pilot, American Gothic, opening the door to a long-term contract with Universal Television.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1978
    Age 19
    Cassidy had released two successful albums, but by the release of his third album, 1978's Under Wraps, his teen-star appeal had begun to fade.
    More Details Hide Details The album just managed to crack the US top 40, peaking at No. 33, and it produced a minor hit in the song "Our Night" (US No. 80).
  • 1976
    Age 17
    While still in high school, Shaun Cassidy signed a contract with Mike Curb's division of Warner Bros. Records and began recording music. His debut studio album Shaun Cassidy was initially released in Europe and Australia in 1976, and he scored a couple of hit singles in several countries, leading to an American release of that album in 1977.
    More Details Hide Details The multi-platinum album netted him a No. 1 U.S. single with "Da Doo Ron Ron" and a Grammy Award nomination for Best New Artist. The Eric Carmen-penned "That's Rock 'n' Roll" (which had already been a hit in Australia and Europe) was the follow-up single and peaked at No. 3. His popularity continued with the concurrent arrival of his television series, The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries, which also starred Parker Stevenson. Cassidy's next album Born Late peaked at No. 6 on the US Top 200 Albums chart and netted the hit "Hey Deanie" (#7), also written by Carmen. His label ran the same formula as before by releasing a remake of a previous hit as the second single; this time with The Lovin' Spoonful's "Do You Believe in Magic? ". It would become a moderate hit for Cassidy, peaking at No. 31.
