Glenn Frey cause of death an arthritis pills: Multiple health problems caused his death says manager
What was the cause of Glenn Freyâ€™s death? While a long list of ailments has been mentioned as reason of his death, a latest report suggests that a pill may be behind his death.
A great singer, guitarist, actor and director, Glenn Frey was not just the co-founder of the famed band the Eagles, but also its soul. He also wrote or co-wrote many of the hit songs of the band.
It is said 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 â€” and died partly because of the pills he took for it, his manager said Tuesday.
Irving Azoff who has been the celebrated singerâ€™s manager for years said, â€œHe died from complications of ulcer and colitis after being treated with drugs for his rheumatoid arthritis, which he had for over 15 yearsâ€¦The colitis and pneumonia were side effects from all the medsâ€.
In the meantime while announcing his death, a statement from family said, â€œIt 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, 2016â€¦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.â€
