Bruce Springsteen paid tribute to Glenn Frey on Tuesday night with a cover of The Eagles’ ‘Take It Easy’.

The Eagles confirmed the news on Monday (January 18), with Brian May, Ryan Adams and Brian Wilson among those offering messages of condolences.

Frey founded the Los Angeles-born act alongside Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner in 1971, with the band going on to become one of the most successful acts of the 70s, before they split for almost 15 years between 1980 and 1994.

Frey, alongside Henley, was one of only two members that remained part of the band throughout their lifespan, recording hits like ‘Hotel California’, ‘Take It Easy’, ‘Tequila Sunrise’ and ‘Take It To The Limit’.
