Eagles founding member, guitarist and singer Glenn Fery, has died at the age of 67.
A post on the Eagles official website read: “Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.”
TMZ today told how Frey had been battling intestinal issues for months and had surgery in November, but his condition this week took a turn for the worse.
Frey co-wrote and sang on most of the Eagles hits, including “Take It Easy,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and “Heartache Tonight.”
He also co-wrote “Hotel California” and “Desperado” with Don Henley and took home 6 Grammys with the band.
When the Eagles broke up in 1980, Fry enjoyed a successful solo career, recording numerous hits, most notably “The Heat Is On” and “You Belong to the City.”
