Glenn Frey tributes by James Dolan was that of a great fan: Glenn Frey health problems, issues and cause of death

Glenn Frey death is being mourned by people across the world. Not just his fans are mourning him and remembering him, Hollywood biggies too are coming forward and praising him.

Hollywood has suffered massive losses in the last couple of weeks. This includes the death of David Bowie and Alan Rickman. The Hollywood fans are finding it really hard to reconcile with the loss of the three.

In the meantime the executive chairman of The Madison Square Garden Company who has his own band, JD and the Straight Shot not just celebrated the release of their album Ballyhoo! But also showered praise on Glenn Frey. Reports suggest that the bluegrass-type group played a handful of songs for fans and Dolan’s famous friends including Lorne Michaels, Zac Posen and Chris Carmack.

Glenn FreyThe band spent a long time paying colorful tributes to Glenn Frey, who died Monday. It was the Eagles member who taught Dolan a very important lesson about making it in the music industry.

While talking about Glenn Frey he said, “He was the leader of the Eagles, and he had a standard and a work ethic that he imparted – and he had willing participants in the rest of the band – but he was not satisfied until it reached a very, very high level…He was insatiable in his appetite in the pursuit of reaching that sound and you could hear it in every show they did…I talk to our guys and say, ‘We cannot practice enough, we can get better at this, you think it’s good now but we can get better.’ That really is Glenn and his epitaph.”

There is no denying the fact that Don Henley became one of history’s most successful songwriting teams with such hits as “Hotel California” and “Life in the Fast Lane”. He died at 67 in New York on Jan. 18. Reports suggest that he suffered from many ailments including debilitating rheumatoid arthritis for years — and died partly because of the pills he took for it, his manager said Tuesday.

His family immediately after his death released a statement saying, “It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our comrade, Eagles founder, Glenn Frey, in New York City on Monday, January 18th, 2016…Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia. 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 & millions of fans worldwide.”
