Glenn Frey of the Eagles had huge presence in music industry: Health problems and cause of death

Glenn Frey’s death is a tragedy that Eagle’s fans are finding very hard to cope. Not just his fans, top of the line musicians, singers, actors and others are mourning his death even more than a week after his sudden demise.

Though he was not keeping well for quite sometimes, his fans had not much idea about his illness and so they are finding it all the more tough to reconcile to the fact that he is no more.

He will remain etched in the minds of his fans and music lovers. Alongside Don Henley, Frey was one of the primary singers of the Eagles; he sang lead vocals on songs such as “Take It Easy”, “Peaceful Easy Feeling”, “Tequila Sunrise”, “Already Gone”, “Lyin’ Eyes”, “New Kid in Town” and “Heartache Tonight”.

Glenn FreyWhile writing about him Bob Lutz says, “Frey, Henley, Walsh, Felder, Meisner was the lineup and they were so cool with their long hair and blue jeans. There was something about the Eagles’ sound, but also something about their persona. I was 21 at the time and I spent hours reading about and learning about each of the guys in the band…Over time, Henley became my favorite. I love his voice and his ability to convey a message in a song. He’s always at his best with a long ballad, such as “The Last Resort,” “The Heart of the Matter,” and “Waiting in the Weeds.”

Bob Lutz goes on to add, “I remember where I was in 1981 when news of the Eagles’ breakup became public. Everyone knew the band was finished because of the acrimony that festered between the members, especially Frey and Felder. The sadness was profound and so was the anger, which I directed mostly at Frey”.

Glenn Lewis Frey breathed his last on January 18 at the age of 67. As the co-founder of the Eagles, Glenn Frey mastered the mix and sound that sent the group soaring with hits like “Hotel California” and “Take It Easy”. The Eagles in a statement announced the death of 67-year old band member and renowned guitarist, Glenn Frey. The Eagles’ band member passed away on Monday due to complications arising from rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia.
