Which Eagles songs does Glenn Frey sing?

Glenn Frey

Glenn Frey, the guitarist, singer and songwriter who co-founded the Eagles in 1971, died on January 18, 2016. Frey was lead vocalist on the Eagles’ first hit, “Take It Easy,” which came out in 1972. His other notable Eagles contributions include “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” ”Already Gone” and “New Kid in Town.”

We have lots of great music to remember him by and I’m sure I’ll be listening to a lot of it over the coming weeks. While putting together an Eagles playlist heavy on Glenn Frey songs I had to think carefully which songs Frey sings lead on. Now that I’ve worked it out I’d like to share the list here. Frey also has four studio albums of original songs and I’ve included some of the standout tracks below.

Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some. – Don Henley, January 18, 2016
