Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey passed away on Monday at the age of 67. The band’s website posted the news late Monday, writing, “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 statement continued. “Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community and millions of fans worldwide.”
He co-wrote the song “Gypsies in the Palace” with Jimmy Buffett, and Will Jennings.
There’s a video on Youtube of Glenn Frey and Jimmy Buffett performing “Margaritaville” at the Aspen High School 1976.
