Remembering Glenn Frey
Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Glenn Frey died Monday at the age of 67, leaving behind a renowned musical legacy in multiple genres. A co-founder of the Eagles, who sold millions of records behind hits like “Take It Easy” and “Hotel California” just to name a few, Frey began the group in L.A. in the early 70s after touring with Linda Ronstadt.
By the time the group reformed for the “Hell Freezes Over” era in 1994, Frey had also released several solo hits like “The Heat Is On” and acted on Miami Vice.
But as Frey told us in 2012 — when we spoke about what would be his last solo album, After Hours, a collection of standards — the Eagles remained “the mothership.”
