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.
While in Crosby, Stills, and Nash, he wrote many hit songs. These include Guinevere, Almost Cut My Hair, Long Time Gone, and Delta. He is noted for his trademark voice.
In 1985, he served a year in jail in Texas after having been convicted for a drug-related offense 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 offenses 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 at the time, Julie Cypher, could have two babies.
While he is still in CSN, Crosby also now leads his own band CPR with guitarist Jeff Pevar and keyboardist James Raymond, Crosby's son who was given up for adoption at birth and reunited with his father after he had become a professional musician himself.
