Glenn Frey - RIP

Glenn Frey has tragically died from complications while recovering from a recent surgery. He was 67 years old.

The latest music legend to pass away this month, Frey was best known as one of the key members of the legendary rock band The Eagles. He commanded the lead vocals for several of the band's most famous hits, including "Take It Easy", "New Kid In Town", and "Heartache Tonight".

Soundtrack fans will fondly remember his solo career during the 80's, where he gave Kenny Loggins a run for his money with several hit songs spun from popular movies and television shows. His biggest hit came from Beverly Hills Cop, where the watershed comedy starring Eddie Murphy kicked off with him crooning to "The Heat Is On". He followed that No. 2 charter with another one: "You Belong To The City", a dark pop song that was written for and put to great use in a certain television show called Miami Vice. He scored an additional track for the show with "Smuggler's Blues", which went to No. 12 on the charts, translated into an episode of the same name, and allowed Frey to guest star.

He will be missed.
