David Crosby may go down in rock history as a hippie icon, but his roots were hardly bohemian. His mom, Aliph, was a socialite and his dad, Floyd, was a Hollywood cinematographer who won an Oscar for his work on Tabu (1931) and also shot High Noon and Beach Blanket Bingo.
David Crosby
David Crosby’s career in rock is truly epic. The drama school dropout first ventured into music into the late ’50s and early ’60s, playing the So-Cal folk club circuit and recording as a solo artist and with the Les Baxter Balladeers. In early 1964 Crosby formed the Jet Set with Roger McGuinn and Gene Clark. Later, bassist Chris Hillman and drummer Michael Clarke signed on and the group was re-christened the Byrds.

Despite the band’s success, chronic creative differences cropped up and in 1967 Crosby left. He spent a couple years working on solo material and produced Joni Mitchell’s 1968 debut album. Eventually he began jamming with ex-Buffalo Springfield frontman Stephen Stills. When ex-Hollies member Graham Nash joined them, CSN was born and released its debut album in 1969. Stills's former Buffalo Springfield bandmate Neil Young made the trio a quartet and in August 1969 the foursome played Woodstock. By the time the next studio effort, Deja Vu was completed in 1970, over two million advance orders had been placed. The rest of the decade was marked by more successful musical collaborations in the studio and on the road with various components of CSNY. But interspersed with those high points were increasingly worse bouts with drugs. Eventually Crosby fell out with his colleagues and decided to go it alone. For a while.

Throughout the ’80s, Crosby zigzagged between music projects with his former bandmates and various drug-related arrests (with a brief detour into publishing when he completed his autobiography Long Time Gone). Crosby’s personal problems culminated in a series of life-threatening crises: a motorcycle accident that left him severely injured, the loss of his home in the Northridge earthquake of ’94 and finally a dire diagnosis of hepatitis C that led to a liver transplant in 1995.

The latter half of the ’90s was a more positive period. Crosby re-connected with James Raymond, the son he'd given up for adoption over thirty years earlier. Raymond had followed in his father’s footsteps and become a professional musician. The two soon began working together, and with guitarist Jeff Pevar formed CPR. In 1997 Crosby, Stills and Nash were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. (Crosby had already been inducted in 1991 as a member of the Byrds.) Young returned to the fold for another album (1999's Looking Forward) and tour. In early 2000 Crosby made headlines with the revelation that he was the father (via in vitro insemination) of singer Melissa Etheridge and life partner Julie Cypher’s children. That same year, his second book Stand and Be Counted was published.
