 Glenn Frey co-founder and guitarist for the Eagles died Monday at age 67. According to the band’s website, the singer and songwriter “succumbed to complications from rheumatoid arthritis, acute ulcerative colitis and pneumonia.” Co-writer of “Hotel California” is mourned by the entertainment world.

Meher Malik and Nitisha Nanda, the choreographers of the Banjara School, adapted the Eagles’ 1977 superhit Hotel California to Indian rhythms and set it as the background score for a unique, sensual Odissi-belly dance fusion production.

Frey is a six-time Grammy winner and enjoyed solo success with songs including “The Heat Is On,” from Eddie Murphy‘s 1984 classic “Beverly Hills Cop.”
