The Eagles- Glenn Frey -RIP

WHEN WILL THIS END!!!!???? Glenn Lewis Frey, was born on November 6, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan and has sadly joined the ranks of recent rock icon deaths, passing away today, January 18, 2016 at the age of 67. According to the EAGLES official website, “Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia.” Glenn had apparently been in the hospital recovering from intestinal surgery in New York City.

The multi-talented musician will forever be immortalized as the guitarist, vocalist, keyboard player and one of the original founding members of the EAGLES, alongside band mate, Don Henley. Glenn sang lead vocals on many of the bands well-known, classic  hits such as “Take it Easy“, “Lyin’ Eyes“, “Already Gone” and “Tequila Sunrise”.

Before the 1980’s breakup, Glenn had already won a total of six Grammy Awards, as well as six  American Music Awards. The EAGLES were also inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, the very first year that they received a nomination. Glenn’s career continued to peak even during his solo career, releasing  the song,”Smuggler’s Blues”. He was reunited with the EAGLES and they released “Hell Freezes Over“, a whimsical remark in reference to the question asked about the EAGLES ever playing together again.

My heart and deepest sympathies go out to Glenn Frey’s family, friends, band mates. Your music will live on in the hearts of millions of fans worldwide and pray that you have found that peaceful, easy feeling.

RIP GLENN FREY
