From the Guardian:

Glenn Frey, Eagles guitarist, has died at the age of 67 in New York.

The founding member of the US rock group had been suffering from intestinal problems for several months and had surgery in November.

Frey co-wrote and sang some of the Eagles’ best-known songs, including Heartache Tonight, Take It Easy, and Lyin’ Eyes, and co-wrote Hotel California and Desperado with Don Henley.

The band announced his death on their website.

“Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia,” a statement read.

“The Frey family would like to thank everyone who joined Glenn to fight this fight and hoped and prayed for his recovery.

“Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community and millions of fans worldwide.

  1. Loved “Sunset Grill and ” You belong in the city”..especially that song because the mood of the song made you feel like your strolling trough a downtown district, enjoying yourself.

    Just like Natalie, i was shocked to hear about the numerous health problems he had..poor thing.

    My sincerest condolences to his family.
