Glenn Frey, Hotel California

R.I.P. Glenn Frey
"Seems like God is trying to put together a hell of an All Star Band in Heaven" - Jackie Kilmer 

Yes, it does, at least cancer was not the culprit this time. I remember the Eagles in my formative years. Hotel California was like an anthem for me growing up. It was part of the mythology that made me want to move West when I got older, an I did.
Here is some 411 on Glenn, may he Rest In Peace -
Glen Frey, co-founder and guitarist for the Eagles, has died ... 
The cause of death was a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.
Frey had been battling intestinal issues for months and had surgery in November. We're told in the last few days his condition took a turn for the worse. He died in New York City.
Glenn co-wrote and sang on most of the Eagles hits, including "Take It Easy," "Tequila Sunrise," "Lyin' Eyes," and "Heartache Tonight," to name a few. He also co-wrote "Hotel California" and "Desperado" with Don Henley and took home 6 Grammys with the band.
After the Eagles' 1980 breakup, Glenn launched a successful solo career, recording numerous hits ... most notably "The Heat Is On" and "You Belong to the City."
