Glenn Frey died here in New York City today - he was just 67 years old. One of the founding members of the iconic Eagles - pioneers of that ubiquitous Southern Califoria sound that served as a soundtrack for most of the 1970's ("Hotel California" was one of the defining albums of the decade).
I was a huge fan of not just the Eagles, but Glenn Frey's solo career in the 1980's (and Don Henley's as well). His "Solo Collection" and "Live" CD's have been staples on my ITunes for decades! The band members reunited in the mid-1990's for the "Hell Freezes Over" tour - and they kept playing together ever since (well into the new millennium).
It's even sadder that this news comes a week after David Bowie's death.
Read his full obituary here in the NY Times.
Rest in Peace Glenn Frey
