Frey's condition came to a sudden and untimely end
In November of 2015, ‘The Eagles’ were supposed to be honored at the Kennedy Center but they cancelled their appearance because Frey had developed intestinal bleeding that required him to undergo immediate surgery. During the surgery, he experienced massive bleeding, went into shock, and never fully recovered. The rock legend passed away on January 18th, 2016, at the age of 67. “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,” wrote ‘The Eagles’ on the band’s official website.
