When the time has come, no one can refuse to go.
Glenn Frey, guitarist and singer of The Eagles (well known for its Hotel California), has died at the age of 67.
Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Acute Ulcerative Colitis and Pneumonia, quoted from www.eagles.com, band’s official website.
Along with Don Henley, Glenn Frey has become the key person behind The Eagles. Glenn sang most of favorite songs from The Eagles.
I knew Eagles for quite some time. The famous track, Hotel California is one of my favorite track when testing multi channel audio system. The conga intro was very special (the version on Hell Freezes Over). Soon after that, I started to know more of Eagles’ songs. Some of my favorites sung by Glenn were Tequila Sunrise, The Girl from Yesterday, and No More Cloudy Days. One of rare talent in this industry. Eagles might have changed several personnel, except Don Henley and Glenn Frey. So Eagles without Glenn might not be Eagles anymore. RIP Glenn Frey. You will be missed. –Jimmy Auw
