Eagles Founder Glen Frey Dies

Glen Frey co-founder of probably the most successful American Rock band of all time, The Eagles, has died.  While it may be a stretch to say that the Eagles were America's answer to the Beatles, they made a string of hits that are a backbone of classic rock.
Frey was born and raised in Detroit.  He learned piano and guitar.  He later moved to Los Angeles where the band was formed in the early '70s.  Frey sang lead vocals on songs like "Tequila Sunrise, Lyin' Eyes, and "New Kid In Town". After the group disbanded in 1980, Frey would have a successful solo career with song like "You Belong To The City".  He also embarked on an acting career, appearing in movies like Jerry Maguire.  Glenn Frey was 67.
