Glenn Lewis Frey was an American singer and songwriter. He was one of the founding members and the lead singer of the rock band the ‘Eagles’. Passionate about music since childhood, Frey learnt to play the guitar after seeing the Beatles perform. As a band, the Eagles performed between 1971–80 and gave some chart-topping hits such as ‘Take It Easy’ (1972), ‘Already Gone’ (1974), and ‘Lyin' Eyes’ (1975). After the Eagles disbanded in 1980, Frey embarked on his solo career and produced hit numbers such as ‘The Heat Is On’ for the top grossing film ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ (1984), ‘You Belong to the City’ for the television series ‘Miami Vice’ (1984-89), and ‘Flip City’ for ‘Ghostbusters II’. Frey forayed into acting with a cameo in ‘Miami Vice’. He then appeared in ‘Nash Bridges’ (1996-2001) and ‘Arliss’ (1996-2002). He was seen in a minor role in the blockbuster ‘Jerry Maguire’ (1996).
