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 could have a baby.

Crosby 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.
