Glenn FreyAnother loss in the music world. Rest in peace Glenn Frey. Glenn Frey, a founding member and guitarist of the Eagles, has died.
We’re told the cause of death was a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.
Frey had been battling intestinal issues for months and had surgery in November. We’re told in the last few days his condition took a turn for the worse. He died in New York City.
Glenn co-wrote and sang most of the Eagles hits, including “Take It Easy,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Heartache Tonight,” to name a few. He also co-wrote “Hotel California” and “Desperado” with Don Henley and took home 6 Grammys with the band.
After the Eagles’ 1980 breakup, Glenn launched a successful solo career, recording numerous hits … most notably “The Heat Is On” and “You Belong to the City.”
Glenn also got into acting, snagging a recurring role on “Miami Vice.”
He reunited with the Eagles in ’94 for their monster Hell Freezes Over tour and recorded music till the end, releasing what would be his fifth and final solo LP, “After Hours,” in 2012.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer had been fighting intestinal issues for awhile but his condition relapsed before the holidays, forcing the Eagles to pull out of their Kennedy Center Honors appearance in December. At the time, the band said he needed major surgery that would require a lengthy recovery.
The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988 and won six Grammys, several related to their last album “The Long Run” before their initial 1980 breakup.
Mr. Frey had a successful solo career in the 1980s, scoring such hits as “You Belong to the City” and “Smuggler’s Blues” from the “Miami Vice” TV show. Other solo hits included “The Heat is On,” “The One You Love” and “Sexy Girl.”
Glenn was 67. RIP.
