Glenn Frey Dead - Eagles Guitarist Passes Away at 67

Glenn Frey, guitarist for the Eagles and one of the band’s founding members, has passed away at the age of 67.

He was battling intestinal issues over the past several months that took a turn for the worse over the past several days, TMZ reports.

Glenn was an amazing musician who helped write famous Eagles songs including “Take It Easy,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Heartache Tonight,” as well as other hits including “Hotel California.”

The Eagles were scheduled to appear at last month’s Kennedy Center Honors but pulled out due to Glenn‘s health issues, citing a long recovery time.

Our thoughts are with Glenn‘s family and loved ones during this time.

    Sorry to hear of Glenn Frey’s passing. Several of the great musicians passing in 2016 and IMO too young to die. RIP and condolences to loved ones, friends and fans.

    I had heard some time back that one of the Eagles was “ill” and they couldn’t do something, RR Hall of Fame or some big gig or tour or something, but in typical zip-lipped fashion, not of them said who. I’m telling you this death, touched my heart. I busted out crying, real tears, and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s their music, his voice, or getting a closer look/feel for the group after their The History of the Eagles documentary that came out in 2014 (I think) that showed us how they form, came up with songs, the spats, or fights, no one saw. How even after they broke up no one knew it thanks to “class rock” stations, and well, 67 isn’t the 67 of ages ago. What a sad, thing this, it just is. It has to be hard on all his band mates, family, and friends. A total stranger, me, weeps with them.
