Singer, songwriter & occasional actor Glenn Frey, best known as a founding member of The Eagles, has passed away of complications from intestinal surgery last November. He was 67. Frey’s passing was announced on The Eagles’ official website.
Frey sang lead on such Eagles’ classics as “Take It Easy”, “New Kid in Town” and “Heartache Tonight”. He would also have a successful solo career during the 1980’s with hits like “Smuggler’s Blues”, “The Heat is On” and “You Belong to the City”. The last two songs were associated with the Beverly Hills Cop and Miami Vice soundtracks, respectively.
His acting credits include Miami Vice, Nash Bridges, Arli$$ and Jerry Maguire.
I’ve always liked the video for “You Belong to the City”. They don’t make songs nor videos like this anymore.
