  • Glen Frey will be given Tribute at the Grammy’s by Band Members

Eagles’ singer, “Glen Frey” who passed away recently, will be given a tribute on the occasion of the 58th Grammy Awards by his band-mates. This tribute will also include his friend, the songwriter Jackson Browne.

Brown will sing the very first hit of the Eagles, “Take it Easy” with band members Bernie Leadon, Schmit Leadon, Joe Walsh, Timothy B, and Don Henley.

This was a southern California Rock track that made the band famous in 1972. This song was originally written by Frey and Brown. Frey died on 18th January, at the age of 67. The cause of his death was his prolonged rheumatoid arthritis, pneumonia and acute ulcerative colitis.

The long time reporter and manager of the Eagles, Irving Azoff, told CNN that they wanted the tribute to be simple and really elegant.

He further said that it was decided by family and band members that instead of watching the tribute given by others, they wanted to do it themselves. After this they decided to lend the tribute at the Grammy Awards. 

The executive producer of the Grammy Awards, Ken Ehrlich said that it would be an emotional moment for everybody present in the audience along with fans of Frey. He changed the game of new music forever. 

The CEO of “The Recording Company”, Neil Portnow said that Frey’s sudden death was a great loss for the music industry. He also said that the Eagles have played a major role in introducing new dimensions to music since the past 45 years.

The Eagles band has sold over 100 million records worldwide. They were introduced to the Rock’n’Roll Hall of fame in 1998. Their album named “Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975” was the first one to go Platinum.

Frey wrote many songs with Henley for the Eagles. “Best of My Love”, “Hotel California” and “Lying Eyes” are some of their greatest hits.
