Glenn Frey, a founding member of the legendary rock band The Eagles, died Monday in New York City at the age of 67.

Frey “fought a courageous battle” for the past several weeks, according to his publicist, but succumbed to complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.

“Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community and millions of fans worldwide,” his publicist said.

Glenn co-wrote and sang on most of the Eagles' smash hits, including "Take It Easy," "Tequila Sunrise," "Lyin' Eyes," and "Heartache Tonight," to name a few.

He also co-wrote "Hotel California" and "Desperado" with Don Henley, and took home 6 Grammys with the band, in addition to being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

 
The Eagles released a statement following Frey's passing: 

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we announce the passing of our comrade, Eagles founder, Glenn Frey, in New York...
