David Crosby

From Sajun.org

David Van Cortland Crosby (born August 14, 1941 in Los Angeles, California) is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He is the son of Floyd Crosby, an Academy Award winning cinematographer.

He was an original member of The Byrds and Crosby Stills & Nash (later Crosby Stills Nash & Young). He is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work in the Byrds and Crosby Stills and Nash.

In 1985, he served a year in jail in Texas after having been convicted for a drug-related offence a few years earlier. He was set free after a higher court overturned his conviction on appeal. Later, he was the recipient of a highly publicized liver transplant. On March 6, 2004 he was arrested for drug possession and weapons offences in New York City.

In 2004, Crosby left behind a piece of luggage when checking out of a New York hotel room. A hotel employee searched the bag to try to find some identification, and found a quantity of marijuana, a 45-caliber handgun and a knife. Crosby was arrested when he went back to the hotel to pick up his property. He was charged with illegal possession of a hunting knife, illegal possession of a handgun and ammunition, and possession of marijuana.

He donated sperm to fellow musician Melissa Etheridge so that she and her lesbian partner could have a baby.
