    WebMD News from HealthDay

    Jan. 19, 2016 -- Eagles co-founder Glenn Frey died Monday in New York City at age 67.

    The singer, guitarist and songwriter died from complications of rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis and pneumonia, according to an announcement on the band's website, The New York Times reported.

    He is survived by his wife, Cindy, and three children, Taylor, Deacon and Otis.

    Frey was born in Detroit on Nov. 6, 1948 and was raised in the suburb of Royal Oak. He started piano lessons at age 5 but switched to guitar after seeing the Beatles perform live in downtown Detroit, The Times reported.

    The Eagles were founded in Los Angeles in 1971 by Frey and drummer and singer Don Henley. They were one of the leading American bands of the 1970s but broke up in 1980. Frey then began a solo career that featured a number of hit songs.

    The Eagles reformed 14 years later and the band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, The Times reported.
