Founding Member Of The Eagles, Glenn Frey, Dead At 67: Musicians And Friends React
Glenn Frey, the axe-man, keyboardist, and sometimes-lead vocalist for legendary rock band The Eagles passed away Monday in New York City. He was 67.
Frey sadly succumbed after a courageous bout with a handful of health issues including rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia, while he was recovering from intestinal surgery, as cited on the band’s website.
Aside from an insane ability to slay a guitar, Frey is perhaps best known for singing lead vocals on the band’s endearing hits “Take It Easy” and “Tequila Sunrise”, as well as fan favorites including “Already Gone”, “Lyin’ Eyes”, “New Kid in Town”, and “Heartache Tonight”.
As the music industry learned of Frey’s tragic and untimely passing via social media, artists, managers, and celebrities alike took to Twitter to send out their condolences and tributes to the late rock legend.
