Glenn Frey, best known as a founding member of The
Eagles, was born and raised in Michigan. In the mid 1960's, Frey
(pronounced like French fry) could be found playing in various Detroit
rock bands. After moving to Los Angeles, Frey landed a job with
Linda Ronstadt's backing band, as did Don Henley, and the roots of the
band the Eagles was formed. The Eagles often shared vocal duties,
and it was Frey's voice on Eagles songs like "Take It Easy", "Lyin'
Eyes", "Heartache Tonight", and many more.
After the Eagles broke up in 1980, Frey began a very
successful solo career. His first solo album,
No Fun Aloud (1982),
did relatively well, featuring several charting songs: "I Found
Somebody", "The One You Love", "Don't Give Up", and "Partytown".
The Allnighter, released in 1984, featured the songs "Sexy Girl"
and "Smuggler's Blues". Two of Frey's most successful 80's hits
were soundtrack related: "The Heat is On", from Beverly Hills
Cop, and "You Belong to the City", from Miami Vice. Frey's
last 80's release,
Soul Searchin' (1988),
featured the hit song "True Love".
Glenn Frey did continue producing into the 1990's as a
solo artist, and by 1994 he was back in league with the Eagles. At
the time of this writing in 2013, the Eagles were still on tour.
Frey released a new solo, studio album called After Hours in
