Artists who have served (or are serving) time in prison
updated over 4 years ago
There are two main guidelines for artists appearing on this list:
1: The artist had to go to prison for an extended period of time, generally with a sentence. Spending a short period in time for jail for a small offense does not count, as it would expand the list greatly with various DUIs and the like.
2. The artist had to be a musician or some other member of the music industry before going to prison, not during or after.
ARTISTS NOT CURRENTLY APPEARING IN DISCOGS:
-Bertolome Zorzi, Venetian troubadour and 13th Century composer. Imprisoned for 7 years by the Republic of Genoa (who were at war with Venice) while traveling with a band of merchants to Byzantium.
