Originally from Detroit, Frey migrated to Los Angeles and became friends with J.D.Souther, Jackson Browne, and future Eagles member Don Henley, and together with Henley became part of Linda Ronstadt's touring band. It was during this period that The Eagles formed, and ultimately became one of the biggest bands of the 1970s and one of the best-selling bands of all time. He left the Eagles in the early 1980s to start a successful solo career, releasing several albums and hits such as "The Heat Is On" and "You Belong to the City," as well as launching an acting career. In 1994 Frey agreed to re-launch The Eagles; Following the 14 year break still held incredible appeal and hadn't lost their edge. This reunion and many subsequent worldwide tours continued right up through 2015. He left behind him a legacy that will never be forgotten, and he will live on in the many hearts he has touched.
