Glenn Frey of the Eagles had huge presence in music industry: Health problems and cause of death
Glenn Freyâ€™s death is a tragedy that Eagleâ€™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”.
While 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 Eaglesâ€™ 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 bandâ€¦Over time, Henley became my favorite. I love his voice and his ability to convey a message in a song. Heâ€™s always at his best with a long ballad, such as â€œThe Last Resort,â€ â€œThe Heart of the Matter,â€ and â€œWaiting in the Weeds.â€
Bob Lutz goes on to add, â€œI remember where I was in 1981 when news of the Eaglesâ€™ 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 Freyâ€.
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.
