Biography

Glenn Frey (born November 6, 1948 in Detroit, Michigan) is an American musician, singer, songwriter, and actor, best known as one of the founding members of legendary band Eagles. He’s also had a successful solo career, starting with 1982’s No Fun Aloud, with his work remaining radio favorites to this day. A member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, he’s worked with many artists such as Bob Seger and Jackson Browne as well.

Growing up in Royal Oak, Michigan, Frey became part of the mid-, Detroit rock scene. His first professional recording experience was performing acoustic guitar and background vocals on Bob Seger’s songs “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” in 1968. Frey and Seger would remain friends and occasional songwriting partners in later years. Frey then moved to Los Angeles. His first recording as an artist was while fronting Longbranch Pennywhistle, a duo with J.D. Souther, in 1969. Frey also met Jackson Browne there, with whom he would also sometimes write songs.

After a stint in 1971 backing Linda Ronstadt, Frey helped form Eagles, playing guitar and keyboards. Frey wrote or co-wrote (often with Don Henley) many of the group’s songs, and sang lead vocal on a number of Eagles hits such as “Take It Easy,” “Tequila Sunrise,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” “New Kid in Town,” and “Heartache Tonight”.
