MUSIC NEWS- News from Southern Cal tells us that Eagle Glenn Frey will go under the knife as an upcoming surgery was revealed in an announcement today saying his health issues have the Eagles holding off on receiving the prestigious Kennedy Center Honor.
The classic southern rock outfit was scheduled to appear at a December 6, 2015 ceremony in Washington, DC, along other recipients; filmmaker George Lucas, Carole King, Rita Moreno, Cicely Tyson, and conductor Seiji Ozawa. The 38th Kennedy Center Honors will still go on as scheduled, the Eagles’ tribute will be postponed until 2016, and Frey's recovery
The group said in a statement that Frey is suffering from a recurrence of “previous intestinal issues, which will require major surgery and a lengthy recovery period,” according to the Washington Post.
The Post pointed out that Mr Frey previously had surgery to remove a large portion of his intestine back in 1990 and four years later had a bout of diverticulitis. That illness suspended the Eagles “Hell Freezes Over” reunion tour until 1995. The musician also suffered an intestinal disorder in 1986.
MNN wishes him the best for a speedy recovery.
