Henley, along with Eagle Joe Walsh and Jackson Browne, paid tribute to Frey at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 15, performing his iconic song “Take It Easy.” Henley described the touching performance as the Eagles’ “final farewell.”
“I think it was an appropriate farewell, he explained in an interview with the BBC, noting that the tribute almost didn’t happen. “I don’t think you’ll see us performing again.”
Frey, a founding member of the Eagles, died on Jan. 18 at the age of 67. He had been battling intestinal issues that caused the band to postpone its Kennedy Center Honors.
