American child star on the TV series, "The Partridge Family," which aired from 1970-1974. After the series finished, he became a radio D.J. in Phoenix, AZ.

On 7/19/1991, he pled guilty to reduced charges stemming from his assault, in 3/1991, of Darius Barney, a transvestite prostitute in Phoenix. Bonaduce paid the guy $20 for fellatio, but began beating him when he refused to do more. He was given three-years probation.

After 10 years away from acting, the publicity over his arrest led to a movie gig in Wisconsin. He opened a comedy club act in 9/14/1991 in Hershey, PA as the opening act for David Cassidy, making jokes about his run-in with the law. By 1995, Bonaduce had a syndicated TV show, "Danny!" and a Chicago radio show.

Seven hours after meeting Gretchen in 1989, they married; she apparently was a good choice, as she has kept him clean, sober and straight. Their baby daughter was born in 1995.

He sustained a minor head injury in a boating accident in the shallows near Venice, CA on 6/20/2001.

On May 31, 2005 he left a one-month rehabilitation program for an alcohol-abuse problem and returned to his job as a California radio program co-host. His wife of 16 years filed for divorce on April 10, 2007 in Los Angeles.
