Man, 2016 has been hard on the entertainment world. TMZ reports:
Glenn Frey, a founding member and guitarist of the Eagles, has died TMZ has learned. Frey had been battling intestinal issues for months and had surgery in November. We’re told in the last few days his condition took a turn for the worse.
