Glenn Frey, a founding member of the Eagles, has died at age 67, the AP reports. Sources tell TMZ Frey had been struggling with intestinal problems for months and went under surgery in November; he reportedly relapsed, causing the Eagles to cancel a scheduled Kennedy Center Honors appearance in December. Sources say he died due to complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. Frey, who co-wrote and sang many of the Eagles' biggest hits, died Monday in New York City, per the band's website. (More Eagles stories.)
