Eagles Founder Glenn Frey Passes Away At 67

Posted at January 19th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

After the tragic news of David Bowie’s death, the music industry was shaken again with the death of guitarist, singer/song-writer, and founding member of ‘The Eagles’, Glenn Frey.

He passed away in New York City, after losing a battle to pneumonia, rheumatoid arthritis, and acute ulcerative colitis. His health had taken a bad turn last year as he was suffering from intestinal problems. Frey is survived by his wife, Cindy, and his three children.

Best known for the track ‘Hotel California’, Frey was born in Detroit and co-founded ‘The Eagles’ in 1971 with drummer Don Henley. “He was the spark plug, the man with the plan,” Henley said. “He had an encyclopedic knowledge of popular music and a work ethic that wouldn’t quit. He was funny, bullheaded, mercurial, generous, deeply talented and driven.”

The Eagles had disbanded for 14 years from 1980 – 1994, while Frey worked on his solo career and said he’ll only get back when hell freezes over. As a play on his words, when The Eagles got back together they released another hit album called “Hell Freezes over”.

We feel just as Brad Paisley say’s on twitter: “Thank you for the music that paved the way for so many others.
