Glenn Frey has died

I am sorry to say that Glenn Frey has passed away on Monday, January 18, 2016.

Prayers for his family and all of us who love him so very much.

He changed my life, just like he did so many others. There are a lot of hearts broken tonight.

This is the message from the Eagles website:

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of husband, best friend, father, comrade, and 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 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.

Rest in peace, sir. I am such a huge fan and he has been a very big influence on me as a songwriter and musician. I had the honor of seeing Glenn & The Eagles in Toronto 2 years ago and they sounded as good as they ever have. What talent, what songs. I am so truly saddened by his passing. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and loved ones. Glenn - thank you for sharing your gifts with us.

I am so sad about this. What a great loss to his family and to the world. I came of age in the 70's and the Eagles' music was part of the soundtrack of that era. We don't have artists of his stature anymore. RIP, Glenn Frey. Your music really touched me.
