Glenn Frey, guitarist and founding member of iconic rock outfit the Eagles, died Monday (1/18) after bouts with ulcerative colitis and pneumonia. He was 67.

The Eagles postponed their participation in the 2015 Kennedy Center Honors earlier this month because of Frey's illness. And Eagles co-founder Don Henley said he was saddened by the turn of events.

"It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it," Henley released in a statement. "But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some."
