Glenn Frey, a founding member of the rock band the Eagles, has died at the age of 67, a publicist for the band has confirmed.

Frey had been suffering from intestinal issues, which caused the postponement of the band’s inclusion in the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors.

Frey and the other original members of the Eagles — Don Henley, Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon — came together to form singer Linda Ronstadt’s backup band in the early 1970s.

After the Eagles’ 1980 breakup, Glenn launched a successful solo career, recording numerous hits … most notably “The Heat Is On” and “You Belong to the City.”

Glenn also got into acting, snagging a recurring role on “Miami Vice.”

He reunited with the Eagles in ’94 for their monster Hell Freezes Over tour and recorded music till the end, releasing what would be his fifth and final solo LP, “After Hours,” in 2012.
