Justin Timberlake, Sheryl Crow, and More Mourn Eagles Guitarist Glenn Frey
The entertainment world suffered yet another painful loss on Monday. Glenn Frey, guitarist and founding member of the iconic rock band Eagles died at the age of 67 from complications due to rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.
Frey and Eagles frontman Don Henley co-wrote many of the band's biggest songs, including "Best of My Love," "Lyin' Eyes," "One of These Nights," and "Hotel California." Frey played guitar and keyboard and provided lead vocal duties for other hits including "Take it Easy" and "Tequila Sunrise."
"We are all in a state of shock, disbelief and profound sorrow," Henley said in a statement Monday. "I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet."
