Very sad. I remember back in the days of AOL, Andrew had a very active message board. He and I corresponded a bit. At the time, he and David were working on a project that now escapes me. I happened to meet David at that time, and he made a reference to it by simply saying, "Andrew and I .. " as if we would know who he was talking about. Of course, we did. Oh, I just remembered that part of what took me over to andrew's board was that he brought David over to the AOL PF board. Using his account, he posted that David was hanging out at his house that night and they were looking around AOL. Andrew told him about the board. I remember well, he wrote, "the next words you read are from David". It caused quite the excitement for a bit.

And don't forget that Andrew wrote and sang the theme song for "Mad About You' sitom - which just began reruns on Antenna TV on March 30th.

Andrew was also undergoing treatment for cancer. but had been responding well to it. However, cancer and chemo, etc. can take a brutal toll on a person's other organs and maybe this is what unfortunately happened with his heart. Andrew was so good to email and post with many fans on that board. His Mom Marni was the singing voice for Natalie Wood in "West Side Story", and appeared on an episode of The Mothers-in-Law".


That Artic David Cassidy messageboard was in the early days of the internet and it was great when David did post on there from Andrew's house. Unfortunately, it also lead to some idiot imposter posting "as David" some vile comments about various other people associated with David, making it seem that David was writing it. And that caused a whole thing on the board and subseqently ruined a good thing because the real David posted one last time to say that he would not be posting on any messageboards after that due to the imposter, and that was the only way for fans to know for sure that anyone posting claiming to be him, is NOT him.
