David Crosby was not related to Bing Crosby

Contrary to popular belief, David Crosby and Bing Crosby have nothing in common except their last names.

Bing Crosby, born May 3, 1903, was a multimedia star and one of the most influential artists of the 20th century worldwide.

David was born on August 14, 1941, the son of Academy Award-winning cinematographer Floyd Crosby and salesman Aliph Van Cortlandt Whitehead. He had an older brother, Ethan, who was also a musician. The singer was married to Jan Dance for 36 years and shared a son with her, Django Crosby, 27.

Other than that, he had five children: James Raymond, Erika Keller Crosby, and Donovan Crosby. He also donated sperm for Melissa Etheridge’s two children, Beckett and Bailey Cypher.

He started his musical career after failing school in Los Angeles. He joined the rock band The Byrds, but was dropped from the group three years later.

Crosby first crossed paths with Stephen Stills in 1968, and the two began playing together. They quickly joined with Graham Nash to form the band, Crosby, Stills & Nash. Together they sold millions of copies of their first two albums: their self-titled debut in 1969 and Déjà Vu the following year, which featured Neil Young.

In 2016, the group disbanded after years of internal tension and rivalry. At the time, David Crosby described Graham Nash as “definitely my enemy” and Young as “the most self-centered, obsessed, selfish person I know.”

In 1971, David Crosby released his first solo album, If I Could Only Remember My Name. The singer released several solo songs throughout the ’80s and ’90s before going on a 20-year hiatus.

David Crosby also had a history of drug abuse and in 1983 he was arrested for possession of a loaded handgun and cocaine. After being released on bail, he went to Florida and finally turned himself in to authorities in December 1985. He spent five months in prison before being paroled from his five-year prison term. That’s when he got clean of drugs.

In addition, he was a two-time inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and five albums he contributed to made Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
