But Robin’s hubby succumbed to his addictions and was kicked off the band after he caused a fatal crash in 2013; high on alcohol, an opioid painkiller and an anti-anxiety drug, the musician hit a pickup truck and caused the driver to hit a guardrail. The man died from his injuries. He served two years in prison for vehicular homicide.

And the 46-year-old former bassist is far from being trouble free. Earlier this year he was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a controlled substance and domestic violence/simple assault.
