Frey died of complications from illnesses including pneumonia

Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey has died at the age of 67, the band has announced.

He died in New York City on Monday from complications arising from rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia.

“Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us,” his family and fellow band members said.

The Eagles were one of the most successful bands of the 1970s, with multiple hit singles including Hotel California, in 1976.

Frey co-wrote Hotel California with singer Don Henley. He wrote a number of the band’s biggest songs on his own, including Heartache Tonight and Lyin’ Eyes.
