    As a huge Eagles fan, I am shocked and devastated by this news. I found out this morning but it's still so hard to take in, especially as he was the youngest band member and was the frontman band leader.

    I have loved Bernie Leadon's My Man (from On The Border) since I first heard it and the lyrics resonate now more than ever:

    A couple of performances of classic songs that will live on even though their voice is now sadly silent:

    Take It Easy (BBC 1973)

    Already Gone (California Jam 1974)

    Although he doesn't tend to be thought of as a lead guitarist, his lead work on ICTYW (which I believe was one of his favourite Eagles songs) is beautiful:

    RIP Glenn. What a fantastic musical legacy you've left behind.

    That's a heart-felt and magnanimous message from Don Felder. Glenn was a pretty tough guy to deal with, and I get the impression he would have been a success at whatever field he was in if he hadn't been a musician. Personally I have always wanted to see Don back in the band.

    Irving Azoff claims Eagles man's colitis and pneumonia were "side effects"


    Glenn Frey's death can be partly blamed on medication he was taking for arthritis, the Eagles' manager has claimed.


    Frey died this week at the age of 67, with his family and bandmates saying in a statement he succumbed to "complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia."

    The band's manager Irving Azoff says the medication Frey was taking to deal with the arthritis played a part.

    Azoff tells The Wrap: “The colitis and pneumonia were side effects from all the meds. He died from complications of ulcer and colitis after being treated with drugs for his rheumatoid arthritis which he had for over 15 years.”

    Azoff did not name the drug, saying he'd been advised by a lawyer not to do so.

    He also revealed that a memorial and party are being planned to honour Frey in Los Angeles. He adds: “I wouldn’t have been the success that I’ve been without Glenn Frey teaching me, leading me and supporting me for over 40 years.

    "He was a passionate family man, a great father, a great humanitarian, and he’s gone way too soon.”

    Bandmate Don Henley led the tributes to Frey, saying: "We were two young men who made the pilgrimage to Los Angeles with the same dream – to make our mark in the music industry.

    "And with perseverance, a deep love of music, our alliance with other great musicians and our manager, Irving Azoff, we built something that has lasted longer than anyone could have dreamed."

    “The colitis and pneumonia were side effects from all the meds,” Azoff said. “He died from complications of ulcer and colitis after being treated with drugs for his rheumatoid arthritis which he had for over 15 years.”

    While Azoff declined to state which medications Frey was taking, Dr. Marc I. Leavey, an internal medicine specialist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore (who did not treat Frey), told TheWrap that medications for rheumatoid arthritis or ulcerative colitis can compromise the immune system’s ability to fight off pneumonia.

    “The medications used for rheumatoid arthritis or ulcerative colitis can interfere with the normal immune response needed to fight an infective agent, such as a pneumonia, again leading to disaster,” Leavey said.

    Even the disease can lead to life-threatening conditions, Leavey cautioned.
