(hennemusic) Eagles manager Irving Azoff says the death of guitarist Glenn Frey on January 18 can be blamed in part on the medications he was taking. The band announced Frey's passing at the age of 67 was based on a combination of rheumatoid arthritis, colitis and pneumonia.

Now, Azoff tells The Wrap that the latter two were caused by medications that he was taking for the inflammatory disorder. "The colitis and pneumonia were side effects from all the meds," explained Azoff. "He died from complications of ulcer and colitis after being treated with drugs for his rheumatoid arthritis which he had for over 15 years."

The manager declined to specify the drug in question, telling The Wrap that he had been counseled by an attorney not to do so. Read more here.
