J.D. Souther, frequent Eagles songwriter: “Glenn Frey was my first songwriting partner and best friend when we set out to realize our dreams of making great music in Los Angeles. Our first year together will always seem like yesterday to me. His amazing capacity for the big joke and that brilliant groove that lived inside him are with me, even now, in this loss and sorrow. I will miss him every day but then…he is always here, isn’t he? I can’t say any more than that for now. The music and the love are indestructible.
“Rest Quietly Dear Little Brother
You are greatly loved and missed”
Ted Nugent, fellow Detroit rocker: “The mighty Motor City has been the Old Faithful of killer music forever, and we lost one of our Motown Soulbrother BloodBrothers today. Glenn Frey was there in the beginning with Seger, Mitch Ryder, me, Motown and all of Chuck’s children and he represented the spirit and soul of Michigan beautifully. I don’t know what it is, but I know it is, and we can only thank Glenn for providing such a moving, emotional, driving, inspiring, dare I say life saving soundtrack that powerfully enriched so many lives. The man had the MoJo. Godspeed Glenn. Jamon.”
MT: Shocker. My friend from the early days, and important member of Eagles, has died. We loved you, Glenn Frey.

Glenn once asked me “what do you think of the name ‘Eagles?'” I said “The Eagles. Great.” He said “no, Eagles.” The group is “Eagles.”
