More information

While still in high school, Cassidy signed a contract with Mike Curb's division of Warner Bros. Records and began recording music. His debut album Shaun Cassidy was initially released in Europe and Australia in 1976, and he scored a couple of hit singles in several countries. That led to an American release of that album in 1977. The multi-platinum album netted Cassidy a No. 1 US single with "Da Doo Ron Ron" and a Grammy 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 number three. Cassidy's popularity continued with the 1977 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" (US No. 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.
