Eagles guitarist and founder Glenn Frey has died at the age of 67, according to TMZ.
TMZ says his death was caused by a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. He died on Monday in New York.
Frey co-wrote and sang some of the Eagles biggest hits, including "Take It Easy," "Tequila Sunrise" and "Lyin' Eyes."
Frey also wrote the hit songs "Hotel California" and "Life in the Fast Lane" with Eagles co-founder Don Henley.
The Eagles have released a statement that reads in part:
"The Frey family would like to thank everyone who joined Glenn to fight this fight and hoped and prayed for his recovery," the statement continued. "Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community & millions of fans worldwide."
