San Diego County residents on Monday, along with the rest of the U.S., mourned Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey who died at age 67.

Frey died in New York from “complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia,” according to a statement from his family and bandmates, who said Frey “fought a courageous battle for the past several weeks.”

A Detroit native, Frey was the lead vocalist on Eagles hits including “Take It Easy,” “Lyin Eyes,” “Tequila Sunrise” and “New Kid in Town.”

He also had a wildly successful solo career, producing hits such as “You Belong to the City,” “The Heat is On,” “Smuggler’s Blues” and “The One You Love.”

Here’s what San Diegans wrote on Twitter about the music legend:
