Rock singer David Crosby has been allowed to return to California on parole from a Texas prison where he served time for drug and weapon possession, the state Department of Corrections said in Sacramento. “His proposed parole was acceptable to us,” department spokesman Les Johnson said. Crosby, 45, once a member of the rock group Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, was released from prison to a halfway house in Houston this month after serving part of an eight-year sentence. He requested that he be allowed to serve the remainder on parole in Los Angeles because he wants to live with relatives in the area. Crosby was convicted of possessing cocaine and illegally possessing a pistol in 1983 after his arrest at a Dallas nightclub where he was performing. Crosby recently said he has benefitted from the jail time because he has stopped using drugs and has written some of his best music.
