(NBC) -

Glenn Frey, a founding member of The Eagles whose solo career included songs connected to "Miami Vice" and "Beverly Hills Cop," died Monday, the band announced.

He was 67.

Frey, a guitarist and singer from Detroit, wrote or co-wrote some of the Eagles biggest hits, including "The Best of My Love," "Desperado," and "Hotel California."

He died from complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia, the Eagles announced on Facebook.

"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," the band said in a statement.
