All of us at Art of the Song are deeply saddened by the untimely passing of Eagles founding member Glenn Frey on January 18, 2016. An inspiration to a generation of musicians and millions of fans, he helped to define the genre of country rock. Listen now to our TRIBUTE to Glenn Frey featuring our 2012 interview and many of his most beloved songs.
A Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, a six-time Grammy winner, and a founding member of the Eagles, Glenn Frey sang lead vocals and shares songwriting credits on many of the Eagles’ hits. In the ‘80’s Glenn moved on to a successful solo career with such hits as “The Heat is On” from Beverly Hills Cop, and “You Belong to the City” and “Smugglers’ Blues” fromMiami Vice. After a 17-year hiatus from releasing solo material, Glenn Frey has recorded “After Hours”, a collection of American standards and love songs from the ‘40s through the present. We sat down with him for an extended conversation at the Southern California Public Radio studios in Pasadena.
