Michigan native Glenn Frey was born on November 6, 1948 in Detroit. He was an American singer, songwriter, actor and founding member of the rock band the Eagles. After the breakup of the Eagles in 1980, Frey embarked on a successful solo career. As a member of the Eagles, Frey won six Grammy Awards, and five American Music Awards. The Eagles were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, the first year they were nominated. When you combine his solo recordings and those with the Eagles, Frey had 24 Top 40 singles on the Billboard Hot 100.

Sadly, Frey died in 2016. Following gastrointestinal tract surgery he was placed in a medically-induced coma at Columbia University Medical Center. Frey died there on January 18, 2016 at the age of 67 from complications of rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia.

Frey's son Deacon joined the Eagles on their current tour sounding every bit like his late father to the amazement of longtime fans.
