Whatever medication Glenn Frey was taking to treat his rheumatoid arthritis might be one of the main causes of his untimely passing, according to Eagles manager Irving Azoff.
In an interview with TheWrap.com, Azoff said that “colitis and pneumonia were side effects from all the meds” and that those side effects were what led to Frey’s death.
The question that many want to know is the name of the rheumatoid arthritis medication, but Azoff would not divulge that information in the interview after being advised not to by his attorney. Azoff did say that Frey was dealing with the pain of rheumatoid arthritis for the past 15 years, so considering just how much the Eagles toured in recent years, it’s incredible that he was able to play through the pain.
