The legendary co-founder of the Eagles rock band, succumbed after a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia at the age of 67.

Frey had been battling his illnesses for months now, lastly having surgery in November, but according to sources, the last few days saw a turn for the worse in New York City.

Glenn is most notable for taking part of crafting the hits “Take It Easy,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “Heartache Tonight,” “Hotel California” and “Desperado”, with the Eagles before embarking on a solo career. He than went on to release solely the hits “The Heat Is On” and “You Belong to the City.”

He also became an actor with a recurring role on television’s Miami Vice, before reuniting with the Eagles in 1994.

Bandmate Don Henley stated about his late friend:

“He was like a brother to me; we were family, and like most families, there was some dysfunction. But the bond we forged 45 years ago was never broken. We built something that has lasted longer than anyone could have dreamed. But Glenn was the one who started it all. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some.”

Glenn Frey will be remembered for his passion of music, which he lived out until his final days. His final album was released in 2012 – “After Hours”. Rest in peace.
