At age 67, Glenn Frey has died. According to multiple media reports, including TMZ, he died of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia. He had been recovering from intestinal surgery.

While he had a long and distinguished solo career after the Eagles disbanded in 1980, he rose to fame and solidified his place in music history and pop culture with the legendary rock group as a guitarist extraordinaire, and co-writer of so many iconic Eagles songs including, ‘Take It Easy,’ “Tequila Sunrise,” “Hotel California,’ “Heartache Tonight,” “Lyin’ Eyes,” and ‘Desperado” among others. He won six Grammy awards while with the Eagles, and has been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Eagles’ official Web site paid tribute with a statement reading in part, “Words can neither describe our sorrow, nor our love and respect for all that he has given to us, his family, the music community and millions of fans worldwide.”

For his part, co-founder Don Henley also released a statement that reads in part, “It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some.”

The loss of yet another iconic music artist comes in the days that we’ve lost now quite a few music artists and celebrities in these early days of 2016 and last days of the previous year including music legends David Bowie, Natalie Cole, and Motörhead founder Lemmy — as well as ‘Harry Potter’ star Alan Rickman, Celine Dion’s husband and former manager René Angélil.

As the news broke, numerous celebrities took to social media, especially Twitter, to express grief and sadness, and yet also to celebrate the life and the legacy and the wonderful music he has left behind.

Here is a roundup of what is being said.

Reactions to the death of Glenn Frey continue, and his name is still a trending topic on Twitter as the famous and the unknown alike express sadness and pay tribute to a true musical icon.
