Glenn Frey, a Founding Member of the Eagles, Dies at 67

Glenn Frey, the guitarist, singer and songwriter who co-founded the Eagles, whose country-tinged, melodic rock tunes, wistful love ballads, philosophical anthems, observations of the outlaw life and testaments to the wages of decadence made them perhaps the leading American band of the 1970s, died on Monday in New York City. He was 67.

An announcement on the band’s website said the cause was complications of rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.
