Isn't that sentence about his death vandalism? Rich (talk) 22:41, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Never was apparently corrected (thank you) while I was typing this Rich (talk) 22:42, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

Death confirmed here. Ghmyrtle (talk) 22:42, 18 January 2016 (UTC)
I knew he was dead; it's just that the original wording in the article was someone's sick idea of humor. 2605:6000:F68E:7900:2945:2F87:6844:67DA (talk) 20:20, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

He didn't have the surgery; he was only scheduled to have it. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:01, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

The Washington Times reference #25 says "The death was first reported by TMZ on Monday afternoon, saying that Mr. Frey had surgery for intestinal problems in November and then “in the last few days his condition took a turn for the worse.”" It's possible TMZ got it wrong. Any references saying that Frey did not have surgery in November? Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 00:35, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 19 January 2016[edit]

On January 18, 2016, Frey died at the age of 67 in New York City of a combination of complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis, and pneumonia while recovering from intestinal surgery in November.

Death cause on infobox[edit]

Could it be easier just to say surgical complications since that was listed as the main COD in a variety of news outlets? --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 03:35, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Arthritis and colitis are not considered fatal conditions, so it is most unlikely they were cause(s) of death. Guess we will have to wait for a coroner's report or a death certificate. WWGB (talk) 03:51, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
It appears he has had these intestinal problems for a while, which required 'major surgery' as indicated in November 2015 here.
@WWGB: So should we remove the death_cause from the infobox until the official cause has been reported by the coroner? --TDKR Chicago 101 (talk) 00:59, 20 January 2016 (UTC)
We do have a COD from reliable media, it just may not be completely accurate in a medical sense. I see that Irving Azoff has now said that Frey's arthritis medication may have caused his intestinal problems, so there is sure to be more to come. I think we can keep the current COD as being informative, but update it if/when further info becomes available. WWGB (talk) 01:23, 20 January 2016 (UTC)

History of the Eagles[edit]

Does anyone want to try expanding the History of the Eagles article I created in in December 2013? It hasn't gotten much love since then, and the documentary could be a good source of info for this article too. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 17:55, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Thelma and Louise Soundtrack and Shakedown Connections[edit]

Part of Me, Part of You was featured in the movie Thelma and Louise as well as the soundtrack so connection of song should be to Frey's album as well as the Soundtrack on the discography

Glenn Frey was originally slated to sing the song from the Beverly Hills Cop III soundtrack that went to #1, Shakedown - however due to laryngitis and not liking the song, recommended his friend, Bob Seger, should sing it, giving Seger his only #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 - according to Fred Bronson's Billboard Book of #1 Hits -

Shakedown was #1 Song #672 in the book I linked above,

The Wikipedia page is not allowing any edits, so I am inlcuding my comments above, thanks! Johnnycasino1 (talk) 01:15, 21 January 2016 (UTC)

@Johnnycasino1: I added the "Shakedown" info to the Frey article and to Shakedown (Bob Seger song)#History. "Part of Me, Part of You" is already mentioned in the Frey article. Could you please be more specific as to exactly what change you would like?
The Frey article is only semi-protected. Once you make a few more edits in some other articles, you will be able to edit semi-protected articles. Thanks! GoingBatty (talk) 20:46, 23 January 2016 (UTC)

Do we need sub-sections under Tributes[edit]

Oppose. Mlpearc (open channel) 20:23, 15 February 2016 (UTC)

Are you opposing the subsection I created or the item I added to the section? If it's a matter of formatting, then change the formatting. There's no need to start an edit war over this. I only intended to add a tribute by Frey's hometown. Drdpw (talk) 20:29, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
As the section title states, the sub-section. Mlpearc (open channel) 20:31, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
Then I will add the street's renaming w/o altering the subsection heading. Drdpw (talk) 20:34, 15 February 2016 (UTC)
I have no problem with adding a single sentence about the street name under the existing Tributes section. WWGB (talk) 00:31, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
Those obituaries should really be going into WP:EL. Street-naming has an air of the trivial to me. And should the entire 'Tributes' section not be simply included under death? Looking at the David Bowie article, editors decided to take that course of action in relation to tributes. Karst (talk) 09:24, 16 February 2016 (UTC)
Moving the obituaries and the tributes as you suggest makes sense to me. Also, if the present items under tributes were moved, then adding the street renaming would indeed have an "air of the trivial" to it. Drdpw (talk) 17:24, 16 February 2016 (UTC)

Family history, solving the family name riddle[edit]

The German family name stems from stepfather Eddie. The biological father was a Franco-Canadian. Glenn was born to Nellie Marie (Markham) and Robert George Cedar. He was raised by his mother and her second husband, Edward “Eddie” Warren Frey.

Glenn’s paternal grandparents were James Edward Cedar (the son of William DuCidre/Cedar and Helene/Heleine/Ellen Boucher/Bouchet/Bushey) and Charlotte H. Watson (the daughter of Ernest Watson and Eliza Elizabeth Howcroft). James was born in Kent, Ontario, Canada, of French-Canadian descent. Charlotte was born in Michigan, to English parents.

Glenn’s maternal grandparents were George Dewey Markham (the son of John Markham and Lucy Sue Scott) and Edith May/Mae McVey (the daughter of Sanford Jackson McVey and Mable Claire Dean). Lucy was the daughter of Mandaville Jackson Scott and Rebecca Ann Cooper. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2003:46:1A12:959F:E5A8:329:23E4:45F2 (talk) 23:41, 18 September 2016 (UTC)

Reference 18 (Absolute Radio) refers back to this article[edit]

When I followed reference number 18 citing a quotation, it led me to an Absolute Radio page which states this Wikipedia page as its source. As such, I feel this reference is merely an infinite loop and not a true indication of a source.

I am not sure what should be done about this, but I am sure someone who reads this will. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:49, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Thanks. I have replaced the citation with a call for a fresh one. —EncMstr (talk) 19:29, 26 November 2016 (UTC)

Wiseguy - TV show 1987-1990[edit]

Glenn Frey was a regular character on the TV show, Wiseguy, playing the character Bobby Travis. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:14, 16 June 2017 (UTC)

He only appeared in one "series arc", according to Wiseguy. Power~enwiki (talk) 21:19, 16 June 2017 (UTC)
