Glenn Frey of the Eagles Has Died
GLENN FREY of the EAGLES passed away yesterday, of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. He was 67.
He’d been battling intestinal issues for months and had major surgery back in November. His condition took a turn for the worse over the weekend.

After the Eagles broke up in 1980, Glenn had a string of solo hits, including “The Heat Is On” from “Beverly Hills Cop” . . . and“You Belong to the City” and “Smuggler’s Blues”, both from “Miami Vice”.
He also did some acting, beginning with an episode of “Miami Vice”. He was in seven episodes of “Wiseguy”, and starred in a short lived series called “South of Sunset” in 1993.
