Irving Azoff, longtime manager of The Eagles has revealed Glenn Frey‘s death was caused in part by medications he took to fight rheumatoid arthritis. The iconic singer and songwriter passed away at the age of 67 on Monday (Jan. 18), due to “complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.”

Azoff told TheWrap that the medications prescribed to Frey can lead to “disaster.” “The colitis and pneumonia were side effects from all the meds,” he said. “He died from complications of ulcer and colitis after being treated with drugs for his rheumatoid arthritis which he had for over 15 years.”
