Eagles band members to honor Glenn Frey at Grammys

The 67-year-old passed away on 18 January after a long battle with poor health, and he is among the late stars who will be remembered at the upcoming music industry prizegiving in Los Angeles on 15 February.

Eight-time GRAMMY winner HENLEY is presently nominated, with STAN LYNCH, for Best American Roots Song for "The Cost Of Living" from his "Cass County" album. "For more than 45 years, the Eagles have played a significant role in shaping our musical landscape", he said in a statement.

Eagles founding member Glenn Frey, who died last month, will be saluted at the 58th edition of the Grammy Awards by his bandmates and his close friend Jackson Browne. Jackson Browne was once Frey's roommate and the two wrote Take It Easy, the Eagles' first big hit. Performers include Adele, Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Diplo, Skrillex, Chris Stapleton, Bonnie Raitt, Ellie Goulding, the Broadway cast of Hamilton, Lady Gaga (performing a David Bowie tribute) and The Weeknd.

The Eagles band from California. "It'll be an emotional moment for many of us - one of reflection, respect, and celebration".

"What is really gratifying is what the surviving members of the Eagles felt about the importance of honoring Glenn's legacy by coming and appearing on the show", Ehrlich said.
