Carole King, Steve Martin React to Death of Eagles Star Glenn Frey
Tributes are pouring in for Glenn Frey, the legendary Eagles band member who died on Monday.
Frey is famed for classic tunes including “Hotel California,” “Take it Easy” and “Tequila Sunrise.”
The 67-year-old passed away in New York from complications of rheumatoid arthritis, pneumonia and ulcerative colitis, according to his band's website.
"The Frey family would like to thank everyone who joined Glenn to fight this fight and hoped and prayed for his recovery," a statement on the band's website said.
Following the tragic news, Eagles co-founder Don Henley said: “It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. Rest in peace, my brother.”
Other famous friends also paid tribute.
"My friend from the early days and important member of the Eagles, has died,” Steve Martin tweeted. “We loved you, Glenn Frey.”
Glenn once asked me "what do you think of the name 'Eagles?'" I said "The Eagles. Great." He said "no, Eagles." The group is "Eagles."— Steve Martin (@SteveMartinToGo) January 18, 2016
