Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey has died. He was 67.

“Glenn fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks but, sadly, succumbed to complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia,” said a message signed by his bandmates and family.

Frey and the other original Eagles — Don Henley, Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon — formed singer Linda Ronstadt’s backup band in the early 1970s.

Frey and Henley co-wrote many of the band’s biggest songs, including “Best of My Love,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “One of These Nights” and “Hotel California.”
